  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 8oz cream cheese softened

  2. In a mixing bowl, mix unsalted butter and sugar to blend ingredients
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla. Continue to mix for another minute

  5. Add milk until dough is sticky and holds together. We used just about an eighth of a cup.
  6. Separate dough into 3 bowls.
  7. Color each piece of dough a different color using food coloring, purple, green, orange. Blend the color well into the dough.
  8. Roll dough into 1-inch balls on a baking sheet, about 2 inches apart
  9. Press down the dough slightly
  10. Bake at 350°F for 10- 12 minutes or until the center feels set and the cookies have crackled on the surface.
  11. Remove cookies from the oven and immediately press in a candy eye into the cookie.
  12. Allow to cool completely and store it in a container at room temperature.
  13. Once done, transfer the cookies into a Halloween concept plate and add some more designs to be creepier.
