It’s almost Halloween and that means we’ve got delicious sweets on the brain! Enter the super yummy Halloween Cookie Puzzle. Making this with Zelda was almost as much fun as eating it. We grabbed our favorite cookie cutters, food coloring and sprinkles and went straight to work. The hardest part was not eating the cookies right away and mustering up the patience to wait for them to cool before frosting them. And trust us — resisting the smell of warm sugar cookies is no easy task. Luckily, the rest the process was a breeze! What are you and your babes cooking up in the kitchen this Halloween?
- 1 Package Premade Sugar Cookie Dough
- ½ Cup Flour
- ½ Cup Tablespoons Almond Milk
- 3 Tablespoons Vanilla Frosting
- 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
- Assorted Gel Food Coloring
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Toss the flour and premade sugar cookie together in a large bowl and then roll the dough out into a rectangular shape on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Bake the cookie dough for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven, immediately use the Halloween cookie cutters to cut out your shapes and them set aside. Allow the cookie puzzle and pieces to cool completely.
- While waiting for the cookies to cool, place the vanilla frosting in a small bowl and combine with green gel food coloring. This will be the textured grass.
- In a separate bowl, mix the powdered sugar and almond milk until combined. You may have to add more sugar or more milk to obtain the correct frosting consistency. Once the frosting is ready separate it into four small bowls. Leave one bowl white and add purple, orange, yellow and black food coloring to the others.
- Once the cookie puzzle is cooled frost the bottom with the green frosting (the grass) and the top with purple (the sky). While the purple is still wet, top with sprinkles. You want to do this as soon as possible because the frosting will harden.
- Next, paint your puzzle pieces. We painted our ghost white, the moon yellow, the bats black and the pumpkins orange, but you can use whatever colors you choose!
- Allow the frosting to dry and place the pieces inside the puzzle!
