Halloween cookies are done!

I can't do math in my head. If I could, I may have said "no" to one or two orders of Halloween cookies. I had five customers who wanted cookies. In my head that equaled 5 dozen cookies - no prob. In actuality, when I went through the orders in my head, four of those five people wanted two dozen cookies. That equals nine dozen. Oops. Good thing I realized that before making the cookies. But really, who could I have said no to? Four dozen go to my boys' school classes, two dozen are for my Mom's work, two dozen are for my cousin's work and one dozen is for a neighbor. I started the cookies on Monday and finished them today. Not bad, time-wise. And I didn't have to spend 12 hours a day making them either. (So glad I didn't do the Dia de los Muertos cookies for the boys' classes!) 
I made some minor changes to a couple of the designs, and added a fifth character to the lineup. I still like the skeleton best.
This is what eleven and a half dozen cookies looks like:

Yes, you read that right. Eleven and a half dozen. I ended up making some for my hubby's work too. Ain't he lucky?

  1. I ended up with a frankie and it tasted as good as it looked. Thanks for sharing your talents with your mom's co-workers. You're so talented! You inspire me. Thank you!
