Super Easy Halloween Cookies

Super Easy Halloween Cookies 

written by: bel

Make a batch of basic cookie dough
Split into two and put in separate bowls
Colour each batch.  I used colour pastes food colouring
Once you have you colour pop your doughs in the fridge for ten mins to firm up a little.
Pic. 1.  Roll in long snakes and then flatten with rolling pin.  (don't forget to flour your surface and rolling pin)
Pic 2. Layer your doughs on top of each other
Pic 3 & 4. Roll again length ways
Pic 5.  Cut into little discs & bake (watch them you don't want them to go brown and change the colours)
Pic 6. Halloween cookies :)
