Halloween Eats

We got festive with the edibles this year. Something special for snacks or meals each night the week of Halloween. My personal favorites:

Mummy pizza
 Spider pizza
fyi, the dough for this pizza was the best I've ever made from scratch. Maybe that's because I didn't go healthy and use any wheat flour, or maybe I finally just landed the best pizza crust ever. Who knows. We'll see if it maintains that nice fluffy texture when I add in wheat flour next time. But it was awesome. 

 And skeleton cookies
 Just so you know, these are chocolate sugar cookies with orange extract and cinnamon to spice em up... and they were KILLER! I got the recipe here, but decided I didn't want to use royal icing to decorate because it doesn't taste so awesome. So I used glace instead with fondant bows/hearts. Trickier, and my skeletons are runnier to prove it, but I love them anyway. Especially this cock-eyed one:
So much personality!


  1. Oh my goodness. You are the cutest mom ever. That last cookies is incredible - I love it!

  2. I always admire you artsy types and your fancy cookies. The best I can seem to do is somewhere in the proximity of Granny Lofthouse Chic (i.e. one frosting color and some sprinkles). Well done. Also, love the costumes!

  3. You are so fun. I love these ideas!
