Happy Halloween! This year I decided to make a few special treats for a Halloween Party we went to. A batch of spooky brain cupcakes and peanut butter cookies with candy pumpkins! Keep reading for the peanut butter cookie recipe below!
I made a classic peanut butter cookie recipe and switched out the chocolate hershey kisses for candy corn pumpkins. They were actually really yummy, though I prefer to eat them separately.
I baked a vanilla poundcake cupcake with swiss buttercream frosting. So much delicious butter!
These were a super quick and easy snack to bring to a party and who doesn't like a cookie?
I used a round pastry tip to pipe the brain pattern and I just kind of went for it. I think they look creepy and brainy, perfect for the spookiest holiday. Happy Halloween and enjoy the cookie recipe!
