Hallowe'en Skull and Cross Bones Cookies

Last night I mentioned that I made 6 dozen skull and cross bones cookies in my update.

Then people started asking to see photos, so I posted a couple of them of the cookies.

I was then asked to post the recipe, so here it is!

Plain and Simple Sugar Cookies

1 cup butter(softened)/margerine
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
4 cups of flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup milk

  1. In a lage bowl, cream together butter/margerine and sugar until smooth.
  2. Add eggs and continue beating until creamy.
  3. Stir in flour and baking powder alternately with the milk, to make a fairy stiff dough.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and kneed a few times by hand to make it smooth and workable.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven 350F.
  7. Cut dough into 4 peices.
  8. Work 1 peice at a time.
  9. Roll onto lightly floured surface to an even 1/4 inch thickness.
  10. Cut out shapes and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet at least 1 inch apart.
  11. Bake 13 to 15 minues until the cookies are very slightly browned on the bottom, but still light on top.
  12. Let them cool before decorating.
