Fuzzy Monster Cookies
Ok friends, these Fuzzy Monster Cookies are adorable, and they are pretty easy to make.
I have links for you to find the Candy Eyeballs.
And the solid colored sprinkles.
Even for the gel food color.
All you have to do is grab a couple tubes of sugar cookie dough, and a cup of flour.
I just happen to think they are the cutest things. And they are yummy too!
Mix two regular tubes of sugar cookie dough in the mixer with the cup of flour. I do this because I get thicker, better tasting cookies, but still have the ease of not having to mix a whole batch of sugar cookie dough. Any kind or brand will do.
Once your dough is mixed with the flour, divide it up into portions for coloring.
I mixed three colors- orange, blue and purple. I divided them up, put them in gallon ziplocs and added the gel food coloring. This color is vibrant, much more so then the little bottles you might get at the grocery store.
Mix the colors in the ziploc until mostly mixed, then remove and knead a little more to get a solid color.
The ziploc method keeps your hands from turning colors, and also keeps the color from getting muddy if you have color on your hands and mix a totally different color.
Roll pieces of dough that are about the size of walnuts. Place the cookie dough ball into your container of sprinkles.
Use the same color sprinkles as the dough you have colored to give the monster cookie a look of fuzzy fur.
I bought my sprinkles at an Amish Dry Goods store, search your local shops for specialty goods.
Once you have the sprinkles on the cookie dough, place the dough onto a parchment covered cookie sheet. Place one or two royal icing eyeballs on the cookies. Place them close together as they part with the rising of the cookie and will separate a bit.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake about 12-14 minutes. Do not overbake.
Let cool and eat!
Store in a sealed container to keep fresh.
I love how colorful these are, they are sure to brighten up your Halloween table.
