  • 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.

    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.

Expert 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.
