EASY HALLOWEEN COOKIES TO MAKE!

I had a family that I wanted to send a thank you to…….and what better way than with cookies!! (I’ll explain all of that in another post!)

I’ve always used a royal icing on my cutout butter cookies recipe.  But, after I seeing a video tutorial covering a cookie with fondant I knew I knew I wanted to try fondant on my cutout cookies!

I have to tell you………I LOVED how easy it was and how pretty it made my cookies look!!

I still like the taste of royal icing better, but it’s nice to have this option for something quick.

I covered some in fondant and others in royal icing.

Can you tell which ones are covered in fondant?

**I’ve tweaked my butter cookie recipe a tiny bit; I added 1/2 tsp pure almond extract and increased the baking powder to 4 teaspoons.

I love butter cookies for cutout cookies because they are softer than a sugar cookie (which is usually crisp and a little crunchy), yet not as soft and crumbly as a shortbread cookie.  Making them perfect for cutout cookies and decorating!!
