I am such a sucker for stuff in the check out aisles. I picked up a Halloween linzer cookie set as I was juggling the kitchenware-I-don’t-need waiting in line at HomeGoods. But aren’t these the cutest? And so easy, too. Here is a set of Halloween Linzer cutters.
how I made them
I used my chocolate cut out cookie dough for the cookies, cutting out the little ghosts, pumpkins, tombstones, bats, cats and witch hats with the mini cutters in the package. Then, I tinted homemade marshmallow fondant with my soft gel pastes (Orange, Regal Purple and Electric Green), rolled it out, used the linzer cutter to cut out a shape the same size as the cookie, and sandwiched the fondant between the two cookies using corn syrup as a glue. You can also use tinted frosting for this part.
And what did I do with all the little ghosts, pumpkins, tombstones, bats, cats and witch hats I cut out? I baked them, of course, and made little ghost, pumpkin tombstone, bat, cat and witch hat cookie bites.
