Halloween Recipe: Jack-O-Lantern Cookies

I originally got this idea by taking "this and that" from different cookie recipes. Then I continued to change the recipe so much as I went along that I think I can now safely call it my own.


  • 1 stick of butter (1/4 of pkg.)
  • 4 teaspoons of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 3 cups of flour
  • orange food colouring (mix 12 drops of red with 10 drops of yellow)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • chocolate chips 
  • pumpkin or circle shaped cookie cutter
  • spray oil

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray a cookie sheet with oil.
  3. Mix soft butter with a fork until it's fluffy.
  4. Add sugar, egg, milk, vanilla, and food colouring. Mix well.
  5. Mix in the flour, salt and baking powder until well blended.
  6. Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  7. Cut out shapes using the cookie cutter, and carefully place them onto the cookie sheet.
  8. Use the chocolate chips to make faces.
  9. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
  10. Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
*Makes about 12 cookies.
