Witches Brew Halloween Butter Cookies — 48 Comments

  1. These are the coolest halloween cookies i have ever seen! Thank you so much for linking up to Sunday’s Sweet Confessions over at mommy’s sweet confessions! Have a great day!

  2. Are the cookies supposed to be soft or crunchy when they are done? I cooked a batch last week and it didn’t look like they weren’t done so I kept them in the oven for 28 minutes and they came out crunchy…I think I over cooked them. I’m trying another batch tomorrow and sticking to the 17-19 minutes.

  3. Hello, I was wondering, I followed all your instructions and my dough was soft so I added more flour. The dough looked a little greesy. So I keep adding more flour? I added 2 sticks 4 tbsps of butter.

    • Hi Alexis,
      How soft was your butter? This is a very tender dough. That’s why I have you roll it between wax paper. Other than your butter being too soft I don’t know what went wrong. Oh, did you add the extra 2 tablespoons of flour to each color? I have made this dough multiple times and haven’t had that problem.

  4. These are great and can’t wait to make them for my daughter’s class. What colors did you use to make the green? I see 2 there.

  5. i really want to try out this recipe the cookies look amazing! But I was wonder if the butter needs to be unsalted or just salted butter. I have been used to using unsalted butter for a lot of cookie recipes so I just want to make sure.

    • Hi Crystal, Gel food coloring is very concentrated. One bottle is plenty. Only add the food coloring a little at a time, stir to combine. Add more if needed but don’t add all the food coloring at once.

  6. To one of the older comments you replied that 2 and 1/2 sticks of butter is equivalent to 1 and 1/2 cups of butter, but the recipe listed above calls for 1 and 1/4 cups of butter. Please, which is the correct amount? Thank you!
