Easy Halloween Sugar Cookies

These Halloween Sugar Cookies are such an easy Halloween food idea! As a lover of sweets, I'm of the firm belief that sugar cookies aren't just for Christmas, and candy isn't just for Halloween!


Cream shortening and sugar together in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add one egg at a time, beating to combine after each addition.


Add the sour cream and vanilla, and beat to combine. 2. Next, add dry ingredients, and mix all together.


Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight. When you are ready to roll and cut your cookies, divide the dough into 2 pieces.


Working with 1 piece of dough at a time, roll it out to ½-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut out your cookies and move them to an un-greased cookie sheet.


Bake cookies at 350 degrees F. for 7 to 10 minutes.  The cookies will still be very light on top and just a little golden-brown on the bottom. Let them cool 5 minutes on the tray before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling.


Decorate with your favorite butter cream frosting. Store extras in an airtight container or unfrosted cookies in the freezer for much longer.
