Black and White Halloween Cookies

This is my sixth set of Halloween wafer paper cookies this year. I'm decorating the house with a cream and black Halloween palette, and I wanted a simple, elegant set of cookies to complement. This set has 24 cookies of 4 designs — skulls, rats, bats, and spiders.

These are some of my "cheater" cookies: I didn't make the cookies themselves. They're good old Lorna Doone shortbread cookies from the grocery store. I piped a white border, flooded with white, and then just "glued" on the wafers with corn syrup. I tried a few with a black border, a dotted border, etc., but I liked the plain unbordered ones best. A lot of bang for the buck in terms of time spent decorating.

The Black and White Halloween Cookie wafer papers are available for purchase here.
