Halloween Sugar Cookies
What is Halloween with out decorating sugar cookies. To begin it really is about being with your family and doing the activity together. If that means you use can frosting and pre bought cookies, well then I am not going to stop you. However these sugar cookies are amazingly good. When you first bake them they are crisp and then after you frost them they are soft, sweet and chewy.
