How to Make Witches Brew Halloween Butter Cookies
- Adding small amounts of gel food coloring at a time. Once the color is added you can’t correct it.
- Separate into three 8.5 ounce portions.
- Roll out each portion of dough between sheets of wax paper.
- Leave the bottom piece of wax paper on the green dough; take off the top piece of wax paper. Take off the top piece of wax paper on the black dough and place on top of the green dough (remove the remaining piece of wax paper on the black dough). Take off the bottom piece of wax paper of the purple dough and place on top of the black dough (remove the remaining wax paper). You should be left with a piece of wax paper on the bottom of the dough. This will help with the rolling process.
- Use the wax paper to help roll the cookie dough into a jelly roll. Refrigerate 2 hours.
- Slice and Bake!

HOW TO SOFTEN BUTTER QUICKLY
If you forgot to leave your butter out on the counter for a few hours don’t worry. Pop it into the microwave for a 10 second burst at 50% power. Turn the stick over and repeat once or twice until the butter has softened.
- Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don’t have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.
- Sanding sugar gives a nice crunch to the edge but it’s totally optional. You can skip or use regular granulated sugar as a replacement.
- For a crisper cookie leave the baking sheet in the oven, turned off and the door cracked slightly open after baking. This will help dehydrate the cookies further to get that butter cookie out of the tin crunch.
- Use a good vanilla for this recipe. It’s one of the stand out flavors here so you don’t want to use the artificial stuff.
