Expert Tips

  • For a quick and easy version of these Wacky Monster Cookies, simply bake Pillsbury™ Ready to Bake!™ refrigerated sugar cookies as directed on package (makes 24 cookies). Frost and decorate as directed in recipe.
  • Don’t have shape cookie cutters? Kids’ cutting tools (washed), pizza cutter or a knife can be used to cut your own shapes.
  • Use your sense of humor and imagination when decorating.
  • Flat, square marshmallows designed for s’mores are ideal for cutting out eyes and horns, and may be found in your grocer’s baking aisle. Otherwise, use large and mini marshmallows. A kitchen scissors or small, round cutters, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, work great.
