Happy Halloween, everyone! If you’ve been reading Pinch My Salt for over a year, this recipe might look a little familiar. And that’s because I posted it the day after Halloween last year.
Yes, it was a little late then. And yes, it’s a little late this year, too! But hey, at least the holiday isn’t completely over this time!
I’m sharing the exact same Halloween cookie recipe this year because it’s my all-time favorite. And these are the only Halloween cookies I ever make! In fact, as soon as I finish writing this, I’m off to bake this year’s batch!
The ghost cookies are made from my mom’s basic sugar cookie recipe (the best sugar cookie recipe I’ve ever tasted) and are decorated simply with a delicious cream cheese frosting. As usual, nothing too fancy here! Just a cute and tasty cookie that has been a Halloween tradition in my family since my sister and I were young. I’ll probably keep posting this same recipe, year after year, and hopefully they will someday become a tradition in your family too!
I was really excited to see that Elizabeth over at Strawberries in Paris made the cookies this year! And her ghost cookie cutters are much cuter than mine!
Ready to bake some ghost cookies? Here’s the recipe!
Happy Halloween, everyone!
And remember, keep an eye out for ghouls!
