I made the chocolate sugar cookie recipe posted at the Cooking forum.
My DS rolled and cut them out. He wants to take them to a Halloween party he is going to tonight.
They turned out really cute. Here is the recipe and a pic.

NOTES : Here's another chocolate cookie. This one is not so dark and a bit sweeter; comes out very tender. I usually cut mine with kitty-cat cutters, they come out like little black cats. I use a toothpick to poke "eyes" and make dents for "whiskers".

Those came out really cute, Lisa! My cutters are different from yours, now I will have to look for that shape as well. I'm glad you used my recipe, it is an old favorite.

Your DS did a nice job Lisa. Very cute, especially the kitty.

Thanks. We had fun making them.
Sylvia, they are from Wilton. Just plastic cookie cutters. Hope you can find them. I will be looking for a ghost. I also have a pumpkin.
