Halloween cookies so easy, it's scary


{Are you scared, yet?!?}

OK....these have to be the simplest cookies EVER!  You need 3 things:

Outline and fill the cookies with black royal icing.   While the icing is wet, sprinkle on the Disco Dust.

THAT'S IT!!!

Disco Dust is like bling for cookies.  I can't even describe how sparkly and pretty it is.  It captures the light like nothing I've ever seen.  I hope these pictures do it justice:

I bought my Disco Dust from Amazon and if you are using Swagbucks, it's a great way to try it for free.  Sweet Baking Supply also sells it and has it in a huge variety of colors!  (I used the one called "Rainbow.")

And since it's almost Halloween, let me share with you the SCARY thing about Disco Dust....it gets EVERYWHERE!!!  If you have a toddler, I'd definitely keep it out of reach.  I made these cookies a few days ago and and still seeing sparkles on my table, my floor, my FACE.  You've been warned! ;)

  2. OMG, loooooooooooove!!! I'm a little frightened of disco dust though. Do you think it is safe to eat? I feel like I read that it wasn't FDA approved, so I ended up not buying it.

  8. The description from SweetBaking Supply states:

    "Disco Dust contains only ingredients that are NON-TOXIC.
    These dusts are not a food product and should not be considered as such."

    You must not have any concerns as far as eating it? It looks sooo pretty!

  9. Hi Bridget!

    Glad to see you decided to play with Disco Dust! It absolutely gets everywhere! It's in my bed, on my husband's work shirt... everywhere! I like sparkes tho!

    Love the cookies, what a great idea!

  10. TeraToo....no, it doesn't scare me. I also used to eat those little silver "dragees" when I was a kid and now they are marked for "decoration" only. I think if you were to eat a GALLON of disco dust, it might not be a good idea, but you would be really *sparkly.*

  24. Gorgeous! I'm still hoping to squeeze out some kind of Halloween cookie or cupcake before...Sunday... ;)

  25. Oh they are gorgeous :) I learnt about edible glitters like this in a class- and really you arent supposed to eat any of them- they are made primarily for decorating cake toppers and things like that for not-eating. Even though they aren't toxic, they are still made from metals like regular glitter so arent supposed to be digested. They are never clear though - there is even a brand over here called EDABLE GLITTER- The guys name is Ed Able...but you still arent supposed to eat it! Talk about false advertising. Everyone uses them anyway- like you said, in such tiny amounts Im sure its no problem. I think these days the silver dragees are ok, they are made from mostly sugar & coated in alcohol paint. :)

  26. These cookies are so cute! I love the AmeriColor black gel because it doesn't taste that bad when you have to use a lot for a dark black cookie.

  28. I know what you mean about the glitter dust!! I made some pumpkins using craft glitter dust and stupid me did them on top of the island. I swear when I rolled out pizza dough a week later, there was flecks of glitter in it. Guess it wasn't toxic cause everyone is fine :O I am hosting a Holiday Recipe Exchange starting Monday and would love to have you join! You have some of the coolest cookies ever! www.foodfunandfotos.com

  32. I've found your cookie stash...I'm going to be here all night! Love the disco dust! Wonderful design!

  33. Sorry, but disco dust is fine particle PLASTIC glitter. No way would I put that on something meant to be consumed. Cute for decos that will be removed before eating, but a real NO-NO for something people will actually eat.
    Try putting that on an ingredients label and having it fly: Flour, sugar, butter, PLASTIC.............yuck.........
