These cookies are so fun and easy to decorate for some Halloween spirit! Especially when you make them with your kids 🙂 Use any combination of sprinkles to create silly and scary monster cookies! You can find eye sprinkles at most grocery stores, this time of year – but I found ours at Michaels! They are even found on amazon!
To make the mouth of these monster cookies we used a store bought black icing tube. They come in small sizes and are the perfect way to easily create faces.
Another fun idea is to use orange sprinkles and make jack o lantern faces!
The cookies are a vanilla flavour, and come together with a few simple ingredients, including our Grass Fed Heritage Sea Salted Butter! The sneaky ingredient that gives these cookies a soft crumb and delicious flavour is a package of vanilla pudding!
All purpose flour
Vanilla pudding dry mix (102 grams)
Donia Farms Sea Salted Butter Softened
White granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set it aside.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and vanilla pudding.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (or handheld), cream together the butter and both sugars. Once light and fluffy, add the canola oil, egg, and vanilla. Beat for two minutes.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients, beating well after each addition.
Pour sprinkles out onto a shallow bowl or plate. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, form round dough balls with your hands. Roll the balls in the sprinkles, pressing them gently into the dough if needed.
Place on the parchment-lined cookie sheet, allowing generous room for the cookies to spread. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Cookies will be barely golden on the bottom when done.
When the cookies are fresh out of the oven, add the sprinkle eyes! Allow the cookies to cool completly, Using a ready to use icing tube, or different colour sprinkles, make the mouth for the monsters.
Enjoy with milk!
