Halloween Witch's Hat Cookies



These spooky hat were stolen from an ugly old witch. The cookies are scratch-made Oreo cookies, a dollop of colorful icing and topped with a chocolate kiss.
Happy Halloween Month! Yes, I celebrate Halloween all October long and will be posting several recipes this season that are tasty and spooky.
These Witch's Hats are made with scratch-made Oreos who wicked dark cocoa powder, I won't have to buy another box of them again. I've used this cocoa powder for several recipes, I'll link them below.
With these witch's hats brim are a colorful like a witch's green skin and purple the cauldron brew.  The top for the hat are chocolate kiss.

Did you know that what people think of a witch with the pointy hat, cauldron, black dress and cats were beer makers? I saw that on one of my favorite cooking facts show.
With this recipe, like I have several times before, I had a little helper my niece Kayleigh. She loved helping me making the cookie dough, roll it out and twist the cookie cutter.

What's your favorite part of Halloween? Are you a big fan of Halloween? Let me know.

Halloween Witch's Hat Cookies

Time:
Prep- 15 minutes
Chilling- 2 1/2 hours
Baking- 7 to 8 minutes

Ingredients


Witch's Hat Brim (Oreo Cookies)
2 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour plus 1/3 cup for rolling
1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
3/4 cup Black Cocoa Powder plus 1 tablespoon for rolling
1 cup Granulated Cane Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 large egg
1 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
48 to 50 Chocolate Kisses

Witch's Hat Glue (Icing)
1/4 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/4 cup Vegetable Shortening
3 cups Confectioners' Sugar
3 to 4 drop of Leaf Green Gel Food Coloring, I used Wilton's
3 to 4 drops of Violet or Purple Gel Food Coloring
1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste
2 Tablespoons Milk
Pinch of Sea Salt

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and sea salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Scrap the sides of the bowl. Add vanilla extract and egg. Mix until egg is well incorporated.
2. Sift in a 1/2 of the flour mixture at a time so it doesn't make a huge mess. Mix until just incorporated. Not all of the flour has to be fully mixed in. Tip bowl over onto clingwrap and work dough together until the dough is dark and no flour is shown.
3. Divide dough into two balls and flatten into a disk. Wrap the dough tightly and chill for 1 1/2 hours.
4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and cover two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Sprinkle a little flour and cocoa on a clean surface then roll dough out to a 1/4 inch thick, make sure not to roll them out too thin or they might burn while baking. Cut the cookies out with a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Place onto prepared pans and chill for 20 minutes. Gather the cookie dough scraps, roll and cut. If the dough gets too warm if make be difficult to cut with the cookie cutter. Chill for 10 to 15 minutes.
5. Bakes cookies for 6 to 8 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes then transfer to a wired rack to cool completely.
6. While the cookies are cooling, cream butter, shortening, salt and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Slowly add in the confections' sugar a cup at a time. Divide icing into three and color with food coloring.
7. Assembling cookies, Transfer icing to three separate ziplock bags. Dollop about a tablespoons worth of icing onto the cookies then top with a chocolate kiss. Store in a plastic container in a cool place.
