Halloween Cookie Ideas

By  | Last Updated:  

One cookie cutter. Two creatures. Does that sound monstrous? Nah—it’s a pretty cool trick!

I used my ghost shaped cookie cutter to make Casper’s cousin and Frankenstein. The cut-out process is identical. The magic happens with your decorations. If you’re getting ready for a Halloween party dessert table, this process would make preparations even easier. Two-for-one: Halloween bewitchment!
