True Blood Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Red food coloring
  • ¼ cup red decorator’s sugar
  • 24 pieces MILKY WAY® Minis
  • 1 tube vanilla frosting
  • Plastic wrap
  • Electric mixer
  • Large bowl
  • Medium bowl
  • 2 cookie sheet pans

 

Directions

1. Combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.

2. Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg; beat well. Slowly add the flour mixture into the dough until blended. Add enough food coloring to tint the dough a bright red. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line the cookie sheet pans with the parchment paper.

4. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out 24 lip shapes. Otherwise, you can form the dough into 24 balls and flatten each slightly to create free-form shaped lips using your hands to pinch and shape the dough. Transfer these to the prepared cookie sheets. Re-roll the scraps if necessary.

5. Sprinkle the cookies with red sugar. Bake 7-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, and immediately press a MILKY WAY® Minis into the center of each cookie. Cool completely. Use vanilla frosting to pipe fangs over the candy.

Tip: If short on time, consider using store-bought refrigerated sugar cookie dough. Begin by kneading 2/3 cup of flour into the dough, then roll and cut according to the above directions. One roll of cookie dough makes approximately 18 cookies.
