I don’t know about you guys but for me October starts the beginning of my baking frenzy. As y’all know I’m vegan and gluten free so I’m used to making modifications to Disney recipes to make them safe for me to eat! This month I’ll be sharing recipes the original versions and modified versions so everyone can enjoy some yummy halloween treats!
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour (sub. for Bob’s 1 for 1 gluten-free flour or your fave gf flour blend)
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
¾ cup butter, softened (sub. Earth Balance orginal buttery spread)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs (sub. Follow Your Heart Egg)
½ tsp. vanilla extract
2 egg whites (sub. corn syrup to desired consistancy)
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
black food coloring paste
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside. Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture in three parts. Once dough comes together, cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400°F. On a floured surface, roll out dough to ¼-inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter or an overturned cup, cut dough into circles about 3 ¼ inches in diameter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely before icing.
Place egg whites in bowl of an electric mixer; whisk until frothy. Add confectioners’ sugar a little at a time, until thick but still spreadable. Place 1/3 of icing in a separate bowl. Add black food coloring paste to reserved icing and stir until color is uniform. Decorate cooled cookies by covering with white icing and letting it dry (placing cookies in the refrigerator will speed up this process). Place black icing in a pastry bag or a plastic resealable bag and cut off a tiny bit of the corner to create a very small hole. Use black icing to draw eyes, nostrils, and stitched mouth on each cookie.
This recipe is from D23 with modifications from me! You should get about 18 cookies to enjoy!
