Serves: 18
Prep Time: 1 Hour, 40 Minutes
Occasion: Halloween
Effort: Average

1 (18 oz.) pkg. Pillsbury Refrigerated Sugar Cookies

1/4 cup sugar

4 rolls fruit-flavored, ring-shaped hard candies

Candy corn
1 (16 oz.) can vanilla frosting

Assorted paste or gel food coloring

How to Prepare:

Freeze cookie dough for 30 min. Line 3 cookie sheets with foil.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut chilled dough into 18 slices. Dip one side of each slice in sugar; place 6 slices, sugared side up, on each foil-lined cookie sheet.

Firmly press ring-shaped candies in dough for eyes. Press candy corn in dough for ears, horns, teeth, beak or mouth to create desired creature. (Be sure candies do not extend over edge of dough; they will melt onto cookie sheet.)

Bake for 7 - 9 min. or until edges are golden brown.

Cool on cookie sheet for about 25 min. or until completely cooled. Remove cookies from foil.

Meanwhile, divide frosting into small bowls. Add food color to each; blend until of desired color. Place each color frosting in resealable freezer plastic bag; seal bags. Cut small hole in bottom corner of each bag.

Decorate cookies as desired.
