Cookies of Vintage Halloween Children

I love vintage Halloween postcards—I'm doing a few different sets of them for Halloween this year. This is the second set; vintage illustrations of children with owls, bats, black cats, and, of course, pumpkins. The postcard artist for these was the famed Ellen Clapsaddle. The full set had 13 cookies (a baker's dozen), but, as often happens in this house, some got eaten before pics.

For the cookies, I used the middle cutter (2"x3" rectangle) from the Ateco 3-Piece Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set available through Amazon. I piped the border in black with a #16 star tip.

The Vintage Halloween Children wafer papers are available for purchase here.
