Vintage Halloween Postcard Cookies

This is the third set of wafer paper cookies from vintage Halloween postcards. This set has Edwardian beauties in costume, with owls, bats, black cats, and pumpkins. Each cookie has a Halloween poem—I do love cookies you can read before eating :)

In order for the text to be readable, these cookies had to be bigger than I usually make—2.5"x3.75". There is no cutter on the market currently in that size, so I first cut a piece of heavy plastic in that size; that got too tedious, so I caved in and made a cutter with the Design Your Own Cookie Cutter kit. I piped the borders with a #16 star tip.

The Vintage Halloween Poem Cookie wafer papers are available for purchase here.
