How to make a Boo Halloween Cookie

Halloween doesn’t have to be all spooky and scary, bring some fun and cuteness to the party with Boo Halloween Cookies that everyone will love and enjoy!

My favorite thing about this Boo Halloween Cookie set is all the different elements of the season you can combine in one cookie! A witch, a ghost, spider webs, and pumpkins make up this BOO, which is not scary in the least! They taste as good as they look, and I am going to walk you through all the steps needed to decorate these cute Halloween cookies.
