Savory chicken and fish fingers get the gross treatment to become spooky Halloween treats. A ghost floats on white glaze on top of a purple and orange cake while ice cream cones hide extra treats on fresh baked cookies. There is no other holiday that allows you to be both sinister and creative. Turn your kitchen into a lab, experiment with these fun culinary ideas only from The Maya Kitchen.
Here is a recipe from The Maya Kitchen I am trying out for myself in time for Trick or Treat. 🙂
Creepy Halloween Witch Hat Cookies
2 ½ cups MAYA All-Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 piece egg
sugar for rolling
ice cream cones
sugar coated candies (preferably Halloween colors)
Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets and set aside. In a bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients. Set aside. In a mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well blended, then add the dry ingredients. Continue beating until thoroughly mixed. Divide mixture into 2 and wrap in wax paper or plastic and turn into a log. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C. Let the chilled dough stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes or until lightly soft and can be sliced with ease. Roll dough into sugar and slice dough into ¼-inch thick rounds and place into prepared cookie sheet 1-inch apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Once baked, transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Set aside.To Assemble: Coat ice cream cone with melted chocolate. Let stand to dry. Fill inner cavities of coated cones with candies then invert on baked cookies. Seal the sides of cones with melted chocolates so as to stick the chocolate coated cones to the cookies. Serve.
