Scarier Jack-O-Lantern Cookies

Just LOOK at this. THIS is what I get for trying to compromise a little. I go COMPLETELY out of my comfort box and try to make something just a BIT more on the SLIGHTLY scarier side of Halloween...and I end up with my sweet little boy LIKING THEM. And asking me to make more.

I hope all of you are happy. Because I am fully prepared to blame everyone except me on this one.

In case you are wondering, this is his very favorite cookie of all. He laughed and laughed when he saw it. He said it was the funniest cookie he'd ever seen. He said it was funny because the pumpkin was eating another pumpkin. He thought THAT was funny. Next thing you know, he's going to start saying "insects" instead of "buggies" and riding motorcycles and growing a mustache and telling me that my jokes aren't funny and eating frozen meals instead of peanut butter and jam sandwiches and it's all because I made jack-o-lantern cookies for Halloween.

Clearly, I am going to need more ice cream for this.

Cute...and scary! Oh my- I can relate. My guy is 4 and asking to go into the Halloween store. Sorry sweetie that store is too scary for Mommy.

Great job!

Oh yeay! I'm so glad that such sweet people like scary Halloween things too. At least my little boy is in good company!

I definitely love these, too, and like everyone else (and your son!) my fav is the pumpkin eating the other pumpkin. :)

Amber said...

I have a question, and I've tried searching, but didn't come up w/ anything. How do you get the indention detail on the pumpkins if you don't outline? I did the pumpkins last night, but I outlined, and my outlines always look like crap. I'd love to skip it, but I don't know any other way? HELP!!! Please!

I am such a sucker for all things Halloween that I am so in love with these cookies, have to say my favorite is the one eating the little one. My kids are not fully prepared to come to the dark side in which I live just yet, but through proper training they will one day :) that being said I am going to have to show them these cookies cause they're going to LOVE them!!!

Take the credit not the blame ;)

Amber -- I pipe every other section and let them dry for 15 minutes before filling in the middle sections. (Kind of like here -- http://lilaloa.blogspot.com/2011/08/candy-corn-pumpkins-and-vampire-cookies.html) On these cookies, I actually went back and brushed cocoa powder into the lines as well to make them look darker.

Kimberly -- I hope that means you are going to try making cookies soon!

Joni said...

Oh, I absolutely LOVE these cookies! I have a batch of chocolate cut-outs waiting to be decorated right now! Did you use stencils for the faces and if so, where did you find them? I'm not that talented as an artist, but you probably are :)

Georganne (LilaLoa) said...

I did not use stencils on these guys. Freehand is perfect for Jack-O-Lanterns! Good luck!
