These ghoulish goodies make great party tray decorations. For a fun presentation, stick them in a "graveyard" of chocolate frosting or pudding and invite the kids to scoop to their hearts' content.
2 ½ c. all-purpose flour
1 c. powdered sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 large egg, beaten
1 ½ tsp. pure vanilla extract
Mix flour and sugar together well. Add remaining ingredients and combine well. Divide dough into two sections and wrap well in plastic wrap or put in zipper-lock plastic bag. Refrigerate at least two hours or overnight.
Put the kids to work making cookie cutters out of cardboard, or find the cutters at your local party store.
When the dough is chilled, roll each section to about 1/8-inch thickness and let the kids go to work with their cookie cutters. Older kids can even use plastic knives or pastry cutters to cut their shapes from the dough. If desired, use cookie stamps to put things like "RIP" on the tombstones. (You can make a cookie stamp out of a potato. Just cut in the desired stamp design.)
Bake on parchment-lined cookie sheets at 350° F for 10-12 minutes. Cool on racks.
