compost cookies: a quick treat from leftover halloween candy

Oh the sweetest things! Halloween has come and gone and all that remains of that frightful night are the mounds of candy sitting in my kitchen. What better way to “recycle” those leftovers then by mixing them together and baking them a la cookie style? Here’s a quick and fun recipe for Compost Cookies.

Simple Sugar Cookies to Keep Santa Coming Back and get Mommy in Bed Early

I will not pretend to be a baker. As most of you who have read some of my other blogs might remember, I am the anti-baker. But, like with anything in the kitchen, I continue to try, try, try, and eventually I am determined to find success! Around this time of year, I always think of my best friends mom, spending all day rolling and cutting and decorating Christmas cookies in her kitchen. These days, we go through tubs of homemade cookies that my sister-in-law hand makes as well. This year I attempted to make some myself. Here is the Basic Sugar Cookie recipe I used, with a few creative changes in flavor and color at the end. (And all without a KitchenAid may I add! Santa, are you listening?)
