Monster Sugar Cookies

Simple Monster Cookies2Do you ever feel like your food is staring back at you?  :)

This weekend, we met up with some of our good friends in Santa Clarita to hang out at the local pumpkin patch.  They have three adorable little boys, and one lucky little princess on the way!  Since seeing them is a rare treat for us, I decided to make the boys their own goodie bags of Halloween treats!

I found cute little felt treat bags at Target in the shapes of a ghost, a pumpkin, and Frankenstein.  In each bag, I stuffed three of these monster cookies, wrapped in a cellophane bag.  The felt bags were so little that I could only fit in a few other little candies, but I think the boys loved the cookies the most anyway.  What boy wouldn’t love to have a googly eyed monster cookie!?

Simple Monster Cookies1If you have never worked with royal icing before, these cookies are a good one to start with because they are quite simple.  All I did was use Sugarbelle’s 20-second icing to flood the cookies, then piped on the eyeballs with stiff white and black icing.  Really quick, really simple, really cute.

For the recipes and tutorials I use (all from my amazing blogging friend, Sugarbelle), follow the links below:
