  • You will need:

    For cookies: For royal icing:
    6 TBSP room temperature butter 1 cup powdered sugar

    1 TBSP water

    Adults: Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease baking sheet with butter or cooking spray.
    Kids: Be sure to wash hands. Cooking can be messy work. You might want to wear a smock or apron.

    On a lightly floured surface, roll cookie dough to 3/16-inch thick. Cut 12 skull shapes with the skull cutter. Gather and reroll dough as necessary. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.

    Adults: Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to rack and allow to cool completely.

    Kids: In a small mixing bowl, combine icing mix and water; stir until dissolved. Add powdered sugar and whisk with a fork until smooth.
    Adults: Spread icing over cooled cookies and allow to set for 30 minutes. Placing the cookies in the refrigerator will speed up the process.

    Kids: Wet brush and tap to remove excess water. Place tip of brush into part of one color on edible watercolor palette and rub gently to activate color. Paint cookies as desired, rinsing brush between colors. Refer to box for inspiration. Cut tip off of the icing pen and embellish cookies with swirls, stars, and facial features.
