Halloween is approaching fast. I know I sound like a broken record when I tell you that I don’t like the holiday but it’s the truth. I can totally do without it. My friends won’t let me though. They have invited us to a cocktails and costumes party on Saturday. Costumes are mandatory. Oy! Thank goodness for the cocktails.
I made cookies to take to the party and I’m sharing these simple Halloween owl cookies with you today.
To make the cookies you will need:
- orange piping and flood icing
- black piping and flood icing
- yellow flood icing
- black candy beads
- black sanding sugar
Begin by using the wide end of a piping tip (I used a tip # 12) to mark the eyes on your cookies before you bake them. I made mine a little too deep. You don’t have to press too hard. This is what the baked cookies will look like.
Next, outline the eyes and wings with orange piping icing. Then, outline the body with black piping icing. Allow the outlines to dry for a few minutes before continuing.
Flood the wings with orange flood icing and immediately make dots with the black flood icing. Then, fill the eyes with orange flood icing, immediately make a dot with yellow flood icing and then drop the black candy beads in. Allow the cookies to dry before continuing.
Finally, fill the body with black flood icing being careful not to fill too heavily. Then, sprinkle with black sanding sugar.
Allow the cookies to dry and then brush off any excess sugar. Finish the cookies by adding a beak with orange piping icing.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you’ll give these a try this Halloween.
The cutter I used was purchased at Plastics in Print.
