Gather your goblins and decorate these cookies made from your favorite cake mix flavor. It’s sure to be a hauntingly good time!
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ devil's food, white or yellow cake mix
cup butter or margarine, softened
Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick pans). In large bowl, beat all ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until thoroughly mixed.
Divide dough in half. On lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough 1/4 inch thick using cloth-covered rolling pin. With 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes. Cut designs in cookies with sharp knife if desired. On ungreased cookie sheets, place shapes.
Bake 6 to 8 minutes or just until set (centers will be soft). Cool 1 minute. Immediately make hole in tops of some cookies, using end of plastic straw; trim any cut edges with sharp knife to straighten. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
Tie ribbon or yarn through holes to hang. Hang ornaments on tree branches anchored in a pot or on Halloween tree (available at craft stores). Decorate remaining cookies as desired, and store covered.
For an even thickness when rolling dough, start at the center and roll toward the outside edges.
Using 1/4 teaspoon almond extract instead of the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla gives these spooky treats a slightly different flavor.
