Halloween cookie baking

We love cookie baking in this house, and this time of year it is chocolate cookies in Halloween shapes. I used one of Martha Stewarts recipes and regular canned frosting that we tinted.
We also added Halloween sprinkles to most of them. We couldn't make any orange or purple frosting though, because we were out of red food coloring. EEK! Oh, well! But will have to get some so we can have orange frosted leaf cookies! Those will be next!
These darling little Christmas tags came from Dale at Sea Dream Studio! Aren't they adorable! I'm going to hang them from the Christmas tree! They are illustrations from an old coloring book. Plus she added some cute extra tags! Thanks Dale!
These are some finds from the thrift store and antiquing in Anoka, MN. Anoka is famous in this area for it's Halloween festivities. They really get into the "spirit"! Bye for now!
