Its the week before halloween and we were in the mood to create something spooky for the kids :)
This time we are trying out a new recipe, instead of the plain sugar cookies we tried out a peanut butter cookie recipe for these halloween cookies. They actually turned out great as we still get that smooth surface on the cookie for decorating. We found the peanut butter cookie recipe from Sweetopia, HERE is the link if you want to try it out :)
The first batch we turned into Frankenstein monsters and mummies, they turn out pretty cute instead of spooky but still appropriate for halloween we think lol :P
Lets start with Frankenstein monster cookies, to make him we started off with the hair, fill the hair area using 20 second black icing and tip#2. When the hair is dry we add the green icing for his face area. Let it dry for a few hours.
When the green icing is dry its time to add the details on his face, add his eyes, mouth, black stiches and pink cheeks (this is optional, if you prefer your monster without it you can skip this part). We tried two different 'look' on our monster, one with raised forhead and one without as we couldnt decide which one we like better, so we did both versions :)
You can also have fun with piping different mouth shape to give him different characters
Next is how to make the Mummies... start off with the face area, we are not really good at free-hand piping so we mark off the area we want to fill as the face and then fill it with green or purple (your preferred colour icing) and let it dry. When the face area is dry, cover the top and bottom area with white 20 second icing and let it dry.
While waiting for the white icing to dry we add the face details, add the eyes, mouth and pink cheeks.
After the white icing dries, pipe the bandages with stiff consistency icing all around the top and bottom of the cookies. Let it dry.
Here are the mummies together, you can do whatever colour face you like, we tried one purple mummy and leave the rest with green face :)
So that's how you make the Frankensten monster and the mummies, i will be posting the Count Dracula and some bat cookies tomorrow, so stay tuned ;-)
