Halloween Sprinkle Sugar CookiesBy Maya Moscovich on October 31st, 2013 Posted in Cakes and Cookies
It’s Halloween baby!
Tonight’s the night. The night where we come back home, grab a quick bite (aka dinner), get the kids into their costumes, put their makeup on, look for the trick-or-treating bags, find them, make sure we have enough candy to give out, meet friends and head out to trick-or-treat. Sounds hectic? Well, it is. But you gotta love it.
I went trick or treating with the kids last year. Other than the fact that it was cold and eventually rained, I had a blast. Oh, the kids did too.
Some people take Halloween very seriously, they decorate the house, they make sure something spooky jumps at you as you come closer to the door and some even jumped at the kids from behind the bushes dressed as a werewolf, which the kids did not find impressive from some reason.
So yeah it’s busy, it’s fun and it’s sweet and this year I was asked to make cookies for my kids’ classes (2 classes). I was wrecking my brain trying to find something easy, fun, fast and impressive enough. Well, the answer was right there in front of me – Sugar Cookies. Who doesn’t like those? And given all the allergies around school, these have no allergenic ingredients. So I went for it.
Got some Halloween sprinkles, some ‘Smarties’ and flour (which I found out I didn’t have – nice Maya, nice) and 30 minutes later I had 3 batches of cookies.
We put each cookie in a cute small bag with some extra ‘Smarties’ in it and there you have it – an upgraded cookie treat.
- 100gr Butter (1/2 Cup)
- ¾ Cup White Sugar
- ¾ Cup Brown Sugar
- ½ Cup Melted Coconut Oil
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 5 Tbsp Halloween Sprinkles
- 1 Pack of ‘Smarties’ (Halloween Theme)
- Preheat oven to 350F (180C)
- Cream the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until they form a fluffy batter.
- Add the eggs and coconut oil in and beat together until fully combined.
- Add in the vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, flour and sprinkles and mix well.
- Scoop one tablespoon at a time onto a parchment paper layered baking sheet.
- Make sure you place the cookie dough scoops at least 1-1 ½ inch apart.
- Using the back of your hand (or the back of a spoon) gently press down every cookie.
- Place 2-3 ‘Smarties’ (or more) on each cookie (pressing them really gently onto the cookie)
- Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let it cool completely.
