Halloween Cookies



I can't believe Monday will be October 1st, which means Halloween is just around the corner! I've been in "Fall Mode" for a couple weeks now but I've just started getting ready for Halloween. I just finished putting up my Halloween decor and decided now was a great time to bake up a tasty Halloween treat. These cookies are one of my favorites. It's basically a chocolate sugar cookie but I've been calling them Halloween cookies for years. They are delicious!

Halloween Cookies

Ingredients
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
4 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
 
For the Frosting
 
Ingredients
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 tsp orange food coloring

Combine ingredients and beat on medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Spread frosting over cookies and decorate.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwaveable bowl on high for 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar, egg and vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour mixture until well blended. Refrigerate 15 min. or until dough is easy to handle. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 min. or until centers are set. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.  Once cooled frost cookies ( recipe below) and top with sprinkles. Enjoy!
