Week of three of our Halloween blog saga and we have for you some amazing Halloween cookie baking ideas. Cookies are great and simple way to get all the family involved in baking and can be especially nice at Halloween, when people want to get creative in the food they’re eating.

Spooky Spider Cookies

Something Sweet Something Savoury

The first bake on our Halloween cookie blog we have these crazy spider cookies. These are a brilliant idea to try this October 31st, with chocolate buttons being used to shape the spider body and melted chocolate for the legs. Finally candy eyeballs are used for the eyes which creates a fun and spooky look.

This recipe is a Halloween classic and comes in the form of iced sugar cookies. The designs pictured here include Mexican Day of the Dead style skeletons, pumpkins, gravestones and skeletons. As with some of the other bakes on this list, these cookies really allow for a lot of creative license in terms of the colour of icing and the iced design itself.

Mouse Oreo Cookies

Who doesn’t love an Oreo?! The fifth bake we have for you this week are these fantastic mouse shaped Oreo cookies. These are made from attaching mini Oreos to the inner section of regular Oreos to create the mouse shape. They are then decorated using candy pumpkin face features, icing and sprinkles to create a brilliant Halloween bake.
