Halloween Blood Splattered Cookies

Blood Splattered Cookies

  • 1 16.5-ounce tube sugar cookie dough
  • 1 16-ounce container vanilla frosting
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • Water
  • Red food coloring gel
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the cookie dough into 12 equal-sized slices and place onto a sheet tray lined with parchment. Bake according to package directions. Remove from oven and let cool.
  3.  Once the cookies are cool, frost them with vanilla frosting. Set frosted cookies on a sheet of parchment on top of the countertop.
  4.  In a small bowl, whisk the confectioner’s sugar with 2 tablespoons of water. Add a few dots of red food coloring gel until the mixture is red as blood. Dip a pastry brush or tines of a fork into the red mixture and splatter the red icing all over the cookies to look like blood splatters. Let sit to harden.
  5.  To serve, dip a knife into the red icing and place alongside the cookies on a serving platter.
