Halloween Sugar Cookies

Can you believe Halloween is around the corner? I feel like it was just New Year’s and here I am baking up Halloween Sugar Cookie Bars! Just like regular sugar cookie bars, but with some holiday flare.

Even though I don’t dress up, I love to watch giddy little kids go door-to-door and see their creative outfits.

Ingredients

Cookie Dough:

Frosting:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray or use a shallow disposable aluminum pan coated with cooking spray.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter for cookie dough until fluffy and light. Cream in Dixie Crystals sugar, combining fully. Lastly, add egg, vanilla and water until fully mixed, scraping down the sides as you go.
  • Sift together dry ingredients for cookie dough and slowly add to bowl. Mixture should pull away from bowl walls and not be terribly sticky. If it is, add an additional 1 tablespoon of water or flour, accordingly.
  • Press cookie dough into prepared baking pans. Bake for 2-25 minutes or until edges are a light brown. Allow to cool before frosting.
  • To prepare frosting, beat butter until light and fluffy and then add remaining ingredients. Add more milk or Dixie Crystals powdered sugar until it reaches a spreadable consistency.
  • Frost and decorate as desired!
