A Cookie to Die For

Run as fast as you can and rustle up this wicked gingerbread man. With buttons for eyes and stitches that keeping him from falling apart, this devilish cookie will capture your heart.

To make these 16 of these baddies, you need:

  • 2 cups of softened butter
  • 1 ¼ cup of white superfine sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 gingerbread man cutter
  • 1 small heart cutter
  • Rolling pin
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Red fondant
  • Icing pens with an assortment of tips and colors
  • Sewing pins

Now that you’ve gathered your pins and needles, it’s time to give your voodoo doll life.

Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the butter and the sugar until its smooth. Next, beat in the eggs and the vanilla. Then stir in the flour and cover and chill the dough for at least an hour.

Step 2

Preheat your oven to 400°. Roll your dough out on a heavily floured surface. Make sure that your dough is at least 1/3 inch thick. Dip your gingerbread man cutter in flour for easy-peasy cutting. Place your cookies an inch apart on parchment paper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Step 3

After your cookies cool, you can cut hearts out of red fondant. Create broken hearts by cutting zigzag lines down their middle. Give some of your voodoo dolls stitches for eyes or swirl black frosting to make button eyes instead. Use a toothpick to create the buttons “X” pattern. Jazz up your cookies by stabbing them with pins and adding slinking snakes.

A treat worth dying for, let your guests sink their fangs into these gory voodoo cookies this Halloween.
