Halloween is coming, and naturally, I had to do something fun with food! Since I’m currently obsessed with all things pumpkin spice, my offering was easy: Halloween themed pumpkin spice cookies with a gorgeous cream cheese frosting!
I never really used to mark Halloween before we had children. And even when they were younger, we would avoid most of it, as the monsters and gore would often scare them a little.
As they’ve grown though, they too have embraced the fun of Halloween: from decorating our home to dressing up and going trick-or-treating. And they’ve enjoyed films and TV shows that make all things Halloween less scary.
So, of course, as they’ve wanted to be more involved in Halloween, my bakes have changed to suit them. And now, I am absolutely LOVING that I can create little Halloween bakes especially for us all to enjoy. Turning simple cookies into seasonal treats is so much fun!
This cookie recipe is actually the same as I’ve shared with you previously, here. But this time, I’m sharing my delicious cream cheese icing and how I decorate them too.
Of course, if you don’t mark Halloween, you can skip all the themed dressing up of these cookies. Just leave the icing uncoloured and spread over the top of your cookies. Easy and just as scrumptious! 😊
A little thing to note though: once you’ve decorated your cookies, they will need to be eaten within a day. The moisture from the icing will gradually soak into your cookies leaving them softer and soggier. Whilst they will still taste amazing (of course!), the texture of them won’t be as enjoyable!
And there you have it! Halloween themed pumpkin spice cookies with adorable cream cheese frosting decorations! So cute!!
Happy baking and happy Halloween friends!
