Ingredients

Cookies

Decorations, as desired

  • Neon gel food colors (orange, purple and green)
  • Rope licorice, candy eyes, large and miniature marshmallows, candy corn, 1 pouch black cookie icing

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, crumble cookie dough and add flour, kneading until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.)
  • 2
    On floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured 2 1/2- to 3 1/2-inch shape cookie cutters (round, square, triangle). On ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts 2 inches apart. Reroll dough and cut additional cookies.
  • 3
    Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely. Meanwhile, separate frosting into 3 small bowls, and add gel food color; mix to desired colors. Frost and decorate cookies, using photo as a guide.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    Don’t have shape cookie cutters? Kids’ cutting tools (washed), pizza cutter or a knife can be used to cut your own shapes.
  • tip 3
    Use your sense of humor and imagination when decorating.
  • tip 4
    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.
