Creepy Gluten Free Halloween Cookies


1 pkg. Gluten Free Shortbread Cookie Mix*
Ingredients to make the cookies
1 pkg. of creepy bugs**


1. Wash and dry your  bugs. Set aside.

2. Make the shortbread cookie dough as instructed on the package.

3. Scoop out the dough  using a large cookie scoop and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Press with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar to make a round shape. Take one of the bugs and press firmly into the dough. Pull off gently to leave your “fossil” imprint.

4. Bake as directed on the package, usually at 350 degrees for about 5 to 8 minutes depending on how thick your cookies are.

5. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with all the cookie dough until you have made all your “fossils.” Makes 24-36 cookies

*I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Shortbread Cookie Mix.**I found the  bugs at a dollar store.

Aren’t these amazing! Too easy to do and lot’s of WOW factor. This is just another recipe in my newest book.
