Halloween Cookie Baking Party


Curious Chef 4 Piece Halloween Cookie Cutters, on Amazon

THEME:

Invite four, five or six friends over, depending on how many your kitchen can comfortably accomodate. You'll bake cookies together, and decorate some pre-baked cookies (to save time). Your guests can go home with two or three dozen Halloween cookies to share with their families.

ACTIVITY:

Bake and decorate a variety of Halloween cookies together, after eating a small savory hot meal. A fire will be burning cheerfully away in your fireplace (if you have one), a fun Halloween movie will be on in the other room, and you'll pour wine or make cocktails for your guests to enjoy in the kitchen as they work.
