I get super excited when the seasons start changing and different holidays start creeping up. It gets my creative juices flowing and things like Frankenstein Sugar Cookies start popping out of my oven.
Anyone else love Frankenstein’s look? He’s big, green, and this one is yummy. I wanted to make something my son could take to school for his Halloween party and sugar cookies are one recipe your can turn into just about anything. Most schools and teachers have a healthy snack only rule, but they usually let it slide for birthdays and holidays, so these Frankenstein cookies are perfect.
The cookie dough recipe itself is super easy and doesn’t require a lot of work.
Now the decorating is just as easy and a little more fun. Even the kids can have fun making them. Everyone loves having fun with Wilton Sparkle Gels and Candy Eyes! Draw on some hair, add some eyes and a face and you’re ready to eat!
