Halloween Cookies

I thought I'd get these posted before 'frankenstorm' hurricane sandy hits us. We're supposed to be without power for a few days here in the district, so we've been preparing here! Last year I never got around to making Halloween cookies, so I've been looking forward to this for twelve months. 

I loved the way these turned out, they were really simple cookies to make in comparison to the last few cookies I've done. 

I think my favorite were the cauldrons :)

 Prayers for all those so far effected by the hurricane and to all else, stay safe.

Happy Halloween!

Candy Corn Cookies

I really don't like candy corn. I think they're gross. But they are pretty cute and signify Halloween, so I thought I make something I actually like to eat in the form of candy corn!

My favorite were the ones with Disco dust (I ran out before I could make all of them sparkle..). 

Lots more Halloween cookies soon to come!

SVU Homecoming Cookies

Sent these babies down to good ol' BV.. Sure miss that place and our days at Southern Virginia University. Doing these cookies brought the memories back.

Thanks for your order Taylor!

Halloween Disney Villain Painted Cookies {Scar, Hades & Maleficent}

That's a mouthful. 

In high school I took a painting class in which I got a C+. It was really hard and I received my lowest grade of the semester in painting; a class in which I expected to get an "easy A". Mr Aitken expected perfection and my paintings were far from perfection. So, I accepted the fact that I didn't like painting and painting didn't like me. But I decided to give it another shot. I'm so glad I did! These were so fun to do. 

I've seen painted cookies and I've been DYING to try them! I saw this painting and also this one on Pinterest and knew I had to make it into a cookie!! I came up with Hades on my own.


Maleficent.. as you can see the "paint" is still wet. I'm not the most patient person.


I will definitely be doing more painted cookies in the future! 

*I noticed the site for the original Maleficent painting is no longer up, if anyone knows the artist let me know so I can link his or her page!
