I received 4 sets of Wilton Halloween cookie cutters from my Aunt last year so I thought of making some halloween treats. I picked out the Frankenstein cookie cutter and made a batch of sugar cookie pops. I used Wilton Sugar Cookie recipe and was able to make 18 pieces. I decorated the cookies with royal icing. This recipe is great for a small batch of cookies but I'll lessen the amount of sugar next time I try baking again coz the royal icing made the cookies a bit sweet to my taste.
Sugar cookies ( Wilton recipe)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375°F. Cream butter and sugar, add egg and mix. Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth. Refrigerate dough 2 hours. Roll out dough 1/8 in. thick on lightly floured surface, dip cutter into flour before each use. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Place on cooling rack for 5 minutes, remove from sheet and cool. Makes 18-24 cookies.
