Halloween Treats Part One

Over the next month I will be posting some fun ideas for Halloween. Today I start with these cute bone cookies. Using my favorite sugar cookie dough I made these cute cookies. I found the bone cookie cookies at The Cookie Cutter Shop. I made a royal frosting, recipe to follow, and used food safe markers to outline in black after the frosting was dry. They turned out really cute and they were the hit of the neighborhood. This would be a simple and fun activity to do with kids.

Royal Frosting
1 pound confectioner's sugar
4 teaspoons powdered egg whites (not reconstituted)
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, beat together all ingredients with an electric mixer at medium speed until just combined, about 1 minute. Increase speed to high and beat icing, scraping down side of bowl occasionally, until it holds stiff peaks, 3 to 5 minutes. Use immediately or cover surface directly with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 2 days.
