Happy Halloween! Β i bought a bunch of Halloween bone sprinkles and these cute little sugar candy eyes, so i figured i would try them out and make these cookies a little creepy πŸ™‚

RECIPE:

for the pumpkin pie snickerdoodles:

  • 2 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup crushed graham cracker

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • cream butter and sugar together with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (about 3 minutes)
  • in a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice and set aside
  • in another separate bowl, beat eggs, vanilla and pumpkin puree until smooth
  • add pumpkin egg mixture into butter and sugar mixture and mix until combined
  • add the dry ingredients in 3 increments, mixing 30 seconds after each addition
  • add crushed graham crackers
  • using a small ice cream scoop, scoop the cookies onto a greased baking sheet
  • bake on 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes

note: i baked mine for about 8 minutes because they were smaller cookies and i wanted them to be really soft

  • once cooled on a cooling rack, add eyes or coat in white chocolate and add sprinkles!

note: you can always roll these in sugar and/or cinnamon before baking

for the death by chocolate peanut pretzel:

  • 2 and 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup regular chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup crushed chocolate covered pretzels
  • 1/3 cup crushed peanuts

note: i estimated the measurements for the chocolate chips, etc- you can always add more of what you like best

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • beat butter, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (about 3 minutes)
  • add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg is added
  • in a separate bowl, blend flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt
  • add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in 3 increments mixing well after each addition
  • add pretzels, peanuts and chocolate chips
  • with a small ice cream scoop, scoop cookies onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes
  • same as with the pumpkin pie snickerdoodles, i baked mine at about 8 minutes so they were soft
  • top with bone sprinkles! (press them into the cookie while soft)

Happy Halloween! πŸ™‚
