Here We Go!

It is the middle of the night. Since I don't have a piping hot plate of food to write about, I will kick off this blog by posting a picture of the cookies I made for my son's Halloween Party at school.

The cookies are nothing fancy. I made some good old-fashioned sugar cookies using my favorite pumpkin cookie cutter. Once they were cool, I frosted them with a nice layer of orange frosting and immediately sprinkled them with orange-tinted sugar. I decided that the cookies still looked a little blah, so I piped on a few creepy bats and spiders.

If you've never tinted sugars, you should give it a try. Sugar tints come in a variety of colors and are incredibly easy to use. It is an easy way to dress up cookies, cupcakes, or other sweet treats.
