HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN APPLE COOKIES

Inspired by Snow White’s Evil Queen I made adorable apple shaped pinata cookies. To make these “poisonous” apple sugar cookies I used my Sugar Cookie Recipe and Royal Icing to decorate.

COOKIE CUTTER

To make piñata cookies you need 3 cookies. 1 of which has a cut out center to hide the candy surprise. Just like these colorful Lego Bricks Pinata Cookies.

I rolled my sugar cookie dough about 2/16 inch (3mm) thick. Cut out apple shapes and transfer them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Then with a smaller round or flower shaped cutter cut out center in some of the cookies. Bake as usual. Let the cookies cool before decorating.

ROYAL ICING COLORS AND CONSISTENCIES :

  • Red, Electric Green, Black – 20 second consistency

DECORATING STEPS :

Start by outlining and flooding apple cookie with red royal icing (20sec). Let the icing crust and then pipe the black stem (20sec). Let the icing crust well.

With electric green (20sec) outline eyes and mouth. Then continue outlining top portion of the apple cookie. Create drips at the bottom. And flood the green section. Use a needle tool to smooth and shape the icing. Let icing dry.

ASSEMBLE PINATA COOKIES

To assemble these cute poison apple piñata cookies glue middle cookie (with a cut out) onto the bottom cookie. Use some royal icing for the glue. Then spoon small candies ( I used nerds candies) into the cavity. Size of candies depends on the cavity size. Glue decorated apple cookie on the middle cookie hiding the candy surprise. Let dry for couple hours.
