It’s Spookie Dough season! With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start baking some tasty, tricky treats. With Elliotts of Montana’s ready-to-bake cookie dough as your base, including two new Spookie Dough flavors, you can easily create fun, decorative cookies with your family and friends. Here are some of our favorite treats to make and enjoy on Halloween night.

Monster Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients:

How to Make

Bake 24 cookies from our MMM Monster cookie dough according to instructions on the tub. Once the cookies have cooled, spread frosting on the bottom side of 12 of the cookies and set them down, frosting side up. Place another cookie on each frosted cookie to create a sandwich. Add sprinkles to the outer edge of the sandwich cookies so that they stick to the frosting. To create the “monster eyes” pipe two small circles of frosting next to each other near the top of the cookie sandwich, and place an M&M on each one (they should be the same color). 

Candy Corn Cookies 

Ingredients

How to Make

Bake a sheet of 12 Peanut Butter Scream cookies. While the cookies are baking, split your frosting evenly into three bowls. In one of the bowls add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring and mix well until you get a light yellow color. Do the same with the orange food coloring in one of the other bowls. You should have three bowls of frosting: white, yellow and orange. Once the cookies have been taken out of the oven and cooled, take one cookie and spread yellow frosting onto the lower third of the cookie, orange frosting in the middle third, and white frosting on the top. Your cookie should resemble the pattern of a candy corn when complete. Continue this pattern with the remaining cookies, and enjoy!

Pumpkin Patch Brownies

Ingredients

How to Make

Bake one pan of Buckaroo Brownies according to instructions on the package. While the brownies are baking, whisk a couple of drops of green food coloring into the frosting to create a bright green frosting. Add the frosting to a piping bag. (Or, for a DIY version, you can put the frosting into a ziplock bag and snip a small piece of the corner off to create your own, disposable piping bag.) Remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool completely. Pipe 25 small circles of the green frosting onto the brownies randomly, but evenly distributed. Place a pumpkin candy on each of the frosting circles so that they stick to the brownies. Then, pipe squiggly lines of the green frosting from one pumpkin to the next, made to look like vines of the pumpkins. Once your brownies are covered in pumpkins and green vines, cut them into 12 brownies and devour your pumpkin patch!

Mummy Cookies

Ingredients

How to Make

Start by pulling about half of the cookie dough out of the tub and rolling it out into a thin, flat sheet of dough using a rolling pin. Break out your gingerbread man cookies early this year and cut 10-12 gingerbread men from the dough. Place on a greased cookie sheet, making sure not to crowd them, and bake according to the instructions on the tub. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Using a piping bag with a small tip, pipe two white dots for eyes. On top of each white dot, create “pupils” with your black decorating gel. Using the white frosting, pipe stripes back and forth over the cookies to create the look of a mummy wrapped in cloth. 

 

Spiderweb Cookie Cake

Ingredients

How to Make

Line a cake pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray, including the paper, until coated. Spread a ½-inch-thick layer of cookie dough in the bottom of the pan, and bake according to instructions on the cookie dough tub. Once the cookie cake has cooled, use the tube of white decorating frosting to create a symmetrical spider web design on the cookie. Add fake plastic spiders if desired – just remember to remove them before serving.
