Bugs and monsters are sure to delight the kids this year as they sink their teeth into these delicious, fun, Allergy-Friendly Halloween Cookies! Both of my boys love this flavor combination of SunButter and jelly wrapped up into a soft cookie. So why not make them even better by turning them into little Halloween creatures!!!
The recipe is an easy one to make.
Start by preheating the oven and mixing the egg replacer (or eggs if you’re using them). Next, cream the shortening, SunButter, brown sugar, and egg replacer.
Next, you’ll add the vanilla, flour and salt. Mix it really well. It starts looking dry at first, but just keep blending the ingredients until it’s combined well. Drop scoopfuls of cookie dough into your hand using a spring-loaded scooper.
Form the cookies by rubbing them between your hands, squeezing the ingredients together and shaping into balls. Slightly flatten them once you place them on the cookies sheet.
Pop the cookies into the oven for about 7 minutes. After the 7 minutes remove the cookies from the oven, and make the indentions for the jelly using a teaspoon.
Next, you’ll want to add the jelly into small sandwich-size baggies. I press the mixture towards one corner of the bag and snip a very small corner off with scissors to make a small pastry bag. Pipe the jelly into the cookies and put back in the oven for the remaining cook time!
After the cookies cooled, I melted chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments. Add the melted chocolate to another baggie and snip off a TINY corner of the baggie. I used the melted chocolate to make faces on each cookie turning them into bugs, spiders and monsters.
I loved turning an old, favorite cookie recipe into a fun, Allergy-Friendly Halloween Cookies!
