Halloween Cookies, Round 1: Little Monsters

I know it's a bit early for Halloween, but I found a bunch of really cute Halloween cookie cutters at my local cake shop and I thought I'd give them a try.  Last Halloween, I was just barely starting to decorate cookies and I made pretty basic cookies, so it still kind of feels like the first time I'm really tackling Halloween cookies.

This week I tried out the little monster cookie cutters I bought.  Oh, and I also tried out LilaLoa's chocolate cookie recipe, which is really delicious.

And for the spiders, I had to go with whimsical, colorful spiders because...well, I really hate spiders so much that even spider cookies really gross me out.  In my son's preschool, the music therapist makes fun of me because I refused to touch the (overly realistic) rubber spider, muchless put it on my head for that awful song "There's a Spider on the Floor".  In case you don't have a preschooler, here's a youtube video I found of it.  Seriously, what sicko came up with that song?

These are great! I love monster cookies and yours are awesome. What company did the cutters come from? I want to make my own monsters.

Kenni, Wilton has a new monster cookie cutter set. Here's a link:

Thanks! I'll check if any stores around me have them before I order online.
