A delicious roll-out sugar cookie dough recipe that is perfect to make these Stamped Halloween Sugar Cookies. They’re fun and easy for kids to stamp and make too!
Last week I was in Winners, as I often find myself, and I came across the cutest Halloween cookie stamps. Of course they ended up in my cart because, really, who could pass them up? I’m a big fan of stamps and like to use them to make pretty pie crusts and cute cut out cookies. They’re such a simple way to make baking a little more fancy and fun. So I got them home and whipped up a batch of sugar cookie dough that’s perfect for stamping.
Roll out sugar cookie dough is great for making spooky shapes!
I’ve made sugar cookies before, but this particular recipe is different. My other sugar cookie recipe is more of a drop cookie, while this one is a roll-out sugar cookie dough, so you can cut it into different shapes. It’s great for cookies cutters, stamps and decorating.
It’s the kind of cookie dough that kids love because they can have fun cutting out different shapes!
Making these stamped cookies is SO easy, and look how cute they are!
Tips and Trick for using Cookie Stamps:
The trick to using stamps for cookies is to gently, but firmly, press the stamp into the dough…lightly wiggling to make sure the stamp leaves an impression. If the impression isn’t deep enough, the stamped image won’t be sharp after baking. It takes a little practice, but the dough is forgiving, and you can roll it up to try again. In fact, you’ll have dough left over each time you stamp a batch, so just gather it into a ball and roll it out again to make more cookies.
Aren’t they adorable? I love how simple and cute these cookies are.
To Ice or Not to Ice?
When I bake and decorate, I like to keep things really simple. I’m not big into fancy icing and all kinds of toppings…I just find it all too much. But I know many people might wonder what’s a sugar cookie without icing? These cookies are delicious without icing, but if you like icing on your sugar cookies, these can easily be decorated any way that you wish.
