Haunting Slices

Slicing these cookies is half the fun. You never know what silly or scary expression you will get!

Yield: Makes about 4 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • orange food coloring
  • Garnish: mini chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, blend together butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly. Stir in vanilla. Add dry ingredients and nuts; mix well. Take out one cup of dough and tint orange. Form remaining dough into 2 logs, tucking the colored dough in the middle of each log; wrap in wax paper, then in aluminum foil. Refrigerate overnight. Slice dough 1/4-inch thick; add chocolate chip eyes. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
