3 Easy and Classic Halloween Cookie Ideas for Kids
Made Simply for kids by Big Cookie House
Everyone loves a good cookie-Especially, one that’s halloween themed!
I’ve got all the steps for how to make 3 Easy and Classic Halloween Cookie Ideas for Kids
Karen, The creator of Big Cookie House in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, and her adorable daughter, are going to show us a step-by-step on how to make them!
Whether you’re making these for fun at home, or bringing them to a halloween party, you’re going to find these cookie decorating tips so simple and straight-forward for kids! And that’s exactly what Karen wants to show us-baking with kids can be easy!
As a professional baker, Karen makes her delicious cookie dough from scratch, however, since this is a kids recipe, we want to keep it simple. And, because there’s just no time to pull out that KitchenAid, we are using ready-to-bake dough found in the refrigerator section at the grocery store.
If you are local to Port Saint Lucie, contact Karen to place your order for your next themed party.
Now on to the decorating…
Classic Halloween Cookie Recipe
- Cutouts on Amazon- you’ll want a pumpkin, spiderweb, and ghost cookie cutter shapes. Find them here
- Piping bags with tips-find here on amazon. (If you have a plastic Ziplock and can poke a fine hole in the corner, you may use that too.)
- Ready-to-bake dough found in the refrigerator section at the grocery store.
- Frosting– white, orange, green, purple. You can just buy all white and then mix the color in yourself with food coloring.
- Bamboo Skewer- but you may be able to get away with a toothpick.
Easy Pumpkin Halloween Cookie
1. To begin, outline the cookie all around.
2. Flood the outside parts of the pumpkin to create half-moon shapes.
3. Using a bamboo skewer, try to smooth the icing and spread it all around, to fill in the half-moons.
4. After about 15-20 minutes or after the icing of the half moons has crusted over, fill the center part. Use the bamboo skewers to smooth it.
Karen’s Pro Tip: While you wait for the icing to crust over, move on to another cookie and toggle back and forth!
5. Finally, add the stem as the last step!
Easy Ghost Halloween Cookie
1. First, outline all around the ghost shape and flood the entire ghost cookie.
2. Next, use a bamboo skewer to smooth the icing.
3. Carefully add eyes by slowly dropping two small dots to make the eyes. I helped Penny by guiding her hand.
4. Draw either a fun or spooked mouth, give your ghost personality.
Easy Spider-Web Halloween Cookie
1. Start with outlining the spider web. See a pattern here? Carefully go around the edge.
2. Flood the inside on the cookie, careful to not go over the edge.
3. To draw the spider web, I helped Penny by playing a “connect the dots game.” Make dots on every peak, starting on the outside and making an imaginary circle. Do it at least 3 times.
4. Using the bamboo skewer, start inside and drag the tip to the outside points.
5. We used Halloween themed sprinkles that we had on hand still make “food” for our spider friend.
6. Add your spider in the middle by creating a circle and some legs.
I hope you enjoyed learning how to make these easy halloween cookies!
