Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies!

After a wonderful end of summer trip to Maine, the flurry of getting the kids back to school, and some last minute gardening and room painting, I feel I am finally getting into an autumn state of mind.

Halloween items are out in force, so inspiration abounds for creating festive cookies. I’ve got a few ideas at the ready, but here’s the first I’ve made so far!

Halloween Tic-Tac-Toe! I love cookies that double as games, like the domino cookies I made for Valentine’s Day. Gives you permission to play with your food and not get into trouble.

The options are endless for the minis you could make to go with the tic-tac-toe “board”….eye balls, candy corn, colored leaves, acorns. I’ve also been thinking that other themes or holidays would be super cute as well. Oooooo, the possibilities!

I would like to give a shout out to one of my favorite cookie artists, Michelle at Make Me Cake Me, who came up with the idea for the teeny ghosts in her blog post here. Once I saw ’em, I knew I had to try ’em! I decided to add sanding sugar to mine this time around. Minis can be a bit of a pain, but you can’t deny their cuteness.

My littlest was delighted to play a few rounds with ol’ Mom! His favorite pieces to use were the little owls, but I forgot to take pictures of those. My bad. No matter, we’ve got some more mini cookies saved for his playdate tomorrow. All they’ll need is some milk, and their after school snack is set!
