Halloween Sprinkle Sugar 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.
