Halloween Owl Cookies

These "HalOWLween" (get it?) cookies are pumpkin-spiced and topped with creamy yogurt-chocolate frosting, then decorated to sheer perfection in this easy recipe!


tube Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
cup flour
can Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting
cup Yoplait® Light pumpkin pie yogurt or Yoplait® Light very vanilla yogurt
candy eye nonpareils
candy corns


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Unroll the Pillsbury™ Sugar Cookie dough. Sprinkle dough with pumpkin pie spice and flour. Knead to combine the flour and spice. Roll out and cut with a 3 inch round cookie cutter, then use the round, top part of a mini heart cutter to cut a small portion from the top center of each heart to form the horned-ears.
  • 2 Transfer cookies to an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove and cool completely.
  • 3 In a medium bowl, whisk together the frosting and yogurt. Frost cooled cookies with frosting. Decorate with eyes and a candy corn piece for the beak.

What a Hoot: Easy Owl Cookies

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

HalOWLween will never be the same. We double-dog dare you to see if you can look at these super easy cookies and not crack a grin.

Whooo is the coolest bird in the kitchen? You are! Because you've now got this recipe for Halloween Owl Cookies that’s easy peasy, and oh-so-caaauuuuute!

Open a tube of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough and sprinkle it out with some pumpkin pie spice and flour. The flour added to the dough will allow your sugar cookies to keep their shape once you start to bake 'em!

Mix flour and pumpkin pie spice with refrigerated cookie dough.

Once the dough is prepped, it's time to cut your new little owl friends out. We've simplified the process just in case you can't find yourself an owl cookie cutter. Simply use a 3" round cutter, then turn a mini heart cookie cutter upside-down and snip a little part out of the top center of the cookies for the horned-ears.

Use a round and heart cookie cutter.

Just like so. Wondering where to get yourself a lil' heart cutter like the one pictured above? Look for fondant cutters in the cake-baking section of your local craft store and you should be good to go for less than 5 bucks!

Cut owl shapes from the dough.

Transfer your cookies to a baking sheet and cook those thangs right up.

Now prep your frosting by whisking together Yoplait vanilla or pumpkin spice yogurt with some chocolate frosting.

Whisk yogurt and chocolate frosting together.

Grab your cookies (once they've completely cooled, yo), nab yourself a knife, and frost away!

Candy eyes and candy corn is all you need to turn your cookies into owls!
