Witch Cookies for Halloween
When I was a little girl, I always dressed up as a witch for Halloween. Always. Sometimes I was a scary witch and sometimes I was a a good witch like Glenda from “The Wizard of Oz” or even Samantha in “Bewitch.” I just loved Samantha’s adorable nose.
As I looked through my Halloween cutters this year trying to find something that would make a cute witch cookie, I felt hopeless. I couldn’t find anything I liked. I decided to contacted my friend Tracy over at Whisked Away Cutters and asked her if she would make a cute witch cookie cutter for me. She said yes and I sent her a sketch. Trixie the Good Witch Cookie was born.
I am so happy we have a new cookie cutter that will allow us to make cute witch cookies instead of just scary witch cookies. We all know the world needs a little cuteness even on Halloween.
Supplies for Simple Witch Cookies:
Icing in the following colors in piping bags fitted with #2 piping tips
Brown Food Safe Marker
Black Ribbon Rose
Black Edible Pearl
Half a Batch of Icing Recipe or a full batch of icing

I plan on making more witch cookies with this cutter. Next time, I will make some royal icing eyes for her. Don’t worry, I will share them with you!
