How to make creepy Halloween eyeball cookies with a heart, number eight, and mustache cookie cutters!


To make these cookies you will need:
  • Flood/20-second icing in the color of your choice for eyes {I used green, purple, and orange}
  • Lighter green, orange, and purple 20-second icing {optional}
  • White piping and Flood icing
  • Black 20-second icing

*Since eyeball cookies are pretty simple, I wanted to give them a little more “dimension”.  You can definitely cut out the lighter colors and layer the colors on top of another, but I wanted a nice smooth surface.  If you’re more comfortable with a more direct approach, don’t be afraid to cut or rearrange the steps so they work for you.

Begin by making irises.  I used the wet on wet technique to add a lighter dot of color in the center of the eye.  If you’re worried about cratering, use thicker icing, and dry with a heat gun or fan.  If you do happen to get craters, don’t panic…you can cover them later.

Let the pupils dry then outline the cookie with white piping icing as shown below.  Be sure to flood in sections if you want a dimensional look.  Once both sides are flooded, add the pupils and let dry.

Here’s the same eyes in color {for visual interest}.  Outline, flood in sections, add lighter dot, let dry, then add pupils.

Once the cookies are dry, finish up with a highlight.  It’s the little things, right?

Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched?

Whether you’re humming Jeepers Creepers or Scream and Shout, these cookies will make you smile.

These days, my kiddos have pretty much sucked every ounce of coolness out of my body, but I wouldn’t change a thing {except maybe the decibel level of my middle son’s voice}.
