Making Jack Skellington Cookies

 I came across a picture on the Disney Blog showing some fun Jack Skellington cookies. You know, the character from the animated movie,  Nightmare Before Christmas.  So I decided to try and make them. SO here you go, my How To.

Start out by making your favorite recipe for sugar cookie dough or to make it easy you can use a pre made slice & bake dough.  Next, roll out the cookie dough about 1/4″ thick and using a round 3 1/2″ cookie cutter and cut dough into circles.   Bake until golden brown.

Base coat the cooled cookies using Royal icing and let it dry until the surface is firm.


Place black icing in a pastry bag and use to create the eyes, nostrils on each cookie.



Next make the mouth and add the stitching.


Here’s my finished cookies, I loved how easy they were to make and how cute they turned out to be.

Happy Halloween!
