Halloween Decorating

I did a little decorating today. I don't really do a lot any more now that my kids are grown. But I did find a few cute things. And my brother made the pumpkin for me many years ago.
I spent the afternoon at my friend's house and we decorated sugar cookies. This is my absolute favorite sugar cookie. It is kind of soft, I bake just until set. And I use a basic buttercream frosting, they don't really set up hard, so you do have to be careful with them. But they taste so much better than hard sugar cookies with the hard decorating frosting made with meringue powder.
And even Rosie got into the spirit.


  1. Rosie makes a cute punkin'!

    I don't do a lot of hallowe'en decorating these days. Used to do quite a bit. I try to do something at the front of the house for the trick or treaters and that's about it.

    The cookies are cute, too.

  2. The cookies look yummy! Rosie is a cute pumpkin. Is she trick or treating this year?

  3. Hi Alice...I love the cookies that look like candy corn...and such a cute dog...

  4. Those cookies look fabulous!
