Nothing like some creepy eyeballs staring out at you to send some shivers up your spine. To get the dark black color you see in these cookies you might have to add some black food coloring.

The recipe for these spiced brown sugar cookies is good enough on it’s own. But by transforming the cookies into these smiling jack-o-lanterns, you’ve got a truly delicious treat that is perfect for Halloween.
Meringue cookies look frightfully delicious in these piped bone shapes. You could even maybe up the gore factor by splattering some strawberry sauce. Too much? On second thought, just stick with the clean white bone look. 😉
