halloween cookies

i decorated the cookies last night. it took me two hours, from 10-12:30pm. ay ay ay! i decided not to ice any and just stick with the chocolate vampire design, because i have WAY too many candy corns.

and thus, without further ado, is how to make vampire cookies. (in twenty-three easy steps.)

step one: combine sugar and butter.


step two: beat it up.


step three: mix dry ingredients.


step four: take a picture of sergeant meowenstein looking so cute.


step five: mix dry and wet ingredients. eggs and vanilla were already added to the butter/sugar mix.


step six: eat some raw dough. even though your mom told you repeatedly as a kid not to eat raw cookie dough because of the raw eggs, you now know it was all a lie because she's eating some too.


step seven: make big balls of dough and wrap them.


step eight: refridgerate!


step nine: roll it out.


step ten: use a wine glass for perfect circles and put on cookie sheet.


step eleven: smell them. mmmmmm.


step twelve: roll out more and more dough because you made five times the amount and it's gonna take awhile.


step thirteen: stack them.


step fourteen: put them in a giant shoebox lined with wax paper for transporting home. what you see here is the second layer.


step fifteen: on your trusty scale, weigh some chocolate chips.


step sixteen: put chips in a bowl over a pot with water.


step seventeen: add oil. oily chocolate chips look good.


step eighteen: organize your decorations.


step nineteen: continue to melt chocolate.


step twenty: begin to decorate.


step twenty-one: vampire army! these should be placed in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden and set.


step twenty-two: try and find containers and room in the fridge for more than two hundred vampire cookies.


step twenty-three: collapse.

How cute! And you must be a way cleaner baker than I am, my camera would have been coated in cookie and chocolate. But now you have to deal with resisting the temptation of eating 50 cookies at a time (because this is clearly an option in this case!)

I copied out that cookie recipe too, but I have no reason to make them so am saving it for another year.

You did a marvelous job, darling!!

thanks everybody.

resisting the temptation: i made them for my boyfriend's class (he is a elementary teacher) so that takes care of a hundred or so. i'm bringing some to a party tonight, some to work tomorrow, some to my parent's house this weekend... and hopefully they'll be gone by this point!
