Spooky Bites #FillTheCookieJar

Spooky Bites

Spooky Bites cookies burst with orange flavor. Top them with your favorite spooky candies or sprinkles!

This month Fill The Cookie Jar is welcoming fall and thinking about Halloween recipes to share with you.

I like dressing up for Halloween. Costumes can be a fun way to get into the spirit, so to speak. 😉
So naturally I want to dress up my cookies, too!

Spooky Bites
I found these mini ghosts, bones and eyes at a local craft store. They seemed perfect to dress up these soft, orange cookies!

    I’ve never had an orange flavored cookie. You’ve got me intrigued. My family also enjoys dressing up (and dressing up cookies) for Halloween. :)
