I made these Halloween cookies using this recipe. And I’m not even gonna lie, I had full intentions of doing royal icing and all that, but I fell under the “spell” of the tube of cookie frosting in Kroger, and took the easier way out. If you’re still scrambling for ideas to bring to a Halloween party, be sure to check out some of my previous posts:

The Boy and I have jetted off to Chicago for the weekend for a fun weekend getaway, and we got tickets to see one of our favorite bands, Cage the Elephant, play. I thought their recent hit seemed quite appropriate for this post, “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”.

Check them out… Buy their CD, it’s really good! We also really like the song, “Back Against the Wall“.

Also, we’ll be reprising our 2008 Halloween costumes, because no one in Chicago knows we wore them last year, right? And I just couldn’t resist because my costume was just so freaking awesome.

“Good Morning Mr Draper.”

He told me all the quotes are dirty, so he is quoteless..

    Love it! Recycled costumes!

    Don't feel bad about shortcuts…it's okay when necessary especially when you bake and cook from scratch as often as you do!

    I love your costume! And the cookies are gorgeous. I cheated, too but with far inferior results.
