We (the kids and I) made Halloween Shortbread Cookies on Sunday. I really wanted cookies so I pulled out my (very old) Betty Crocker cookbook (1960 – it was my grandma’s cookbook that she gave to me when I went to college). This makes about 2 dozen cookies.
|Pumpkin, Bat, Cat, and Frankenstein Cookie Cutters and my helper|
3/4 cup butter (softened)
1/4 cup sugar
2 cup all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together and roll out on a floured cloth on a board. Roll out to about 1/2″ thickness and and use cookie cutters (we used Halloween ones). Bake for 20 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Remove from pan immediately and place on cooling racks.

|Who says I can’t fit that whole bat cookie in my mouth at once?|
Takes about an hour from start to finish (clean-up) and they are FANTASTIC! It is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
