Bake and decorate these giant witch cookies for and get into the Halloween spirit!

Ingredients

1
cup sugar
1
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg
1
teaspoon vanilla
3
cups Gold Medal™ flour
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
3
or 4 drops green food color
3
or 4 drops yellow food color
1
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting
Assorted candies for decorating, as desired

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, beat sugar and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour for easier handling.
  • 2 Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. Shape half of dough into 10 (1 1/2-inch) balls. On parchment-lined cookie sheets, pat each ball of dough into 4-inch circle, using floured fingers if necessary. Place 2 or 3 circles on each cookie sheet, about 9 inches apart.
  • 3 On floured surface, divide remaining half of dough into 2 portions. Roll each portion into 9x6-inch rectangle. Cut each rectangle into 4 whole triangles and 2 half triangles (see diagram). Press 2 half triangles together to form fifth whole triangle. Cut 1/2-inch strip from top edge of each dough circle on cookie sheet; set aside. Place triangle over each cut edge of circle, covering 1/4 inch of cut edge; press to seal, aligning edge of triangle with edge of circle. Slightly bend point of "hat" if desired. Roll each 1/2-inch strip into 2 (1-inch) ropes; attach to either side of "hat" for brim.
  • 4 Bake 7 to 11 minutes or until edges of cookies are golden and surfaces look dry. With broad metal pancake turner, remove cookies from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5 Tint vanilla frosting green with green and yellow food colors. Spread on circles for witches' faces. Spread chocolate frosting on hats. Make faces using candies.
Tips  

To color the frosting a more intense green, use electric green gel paste instead of food color.

To make licorice more pliable, warm it in the microwave 3 to 5 seconds.
