A Halloween Community Cookie Collection

I don’t know about you, but I began to get more than a little freaked out (pun intended) as I was making my shopping rounds this week. After aisle upon aisle of orange and black, my heart was skipping beats. Wasn’t Labor Day just last weekend? Why are people already stocking up on miniature treats? And what’s with the pumpkins on display in a 90-degree parking lot?! If I could cast an evil spell on all greedy merchandisers, I would! How dare they make me feel like such a laggard! 

After this short rant, I decided I better kick it into high gear. And what easier, more festive way than with another cookie collection, this time in honor of Halloween?! I’ve launched this link-up with some of my treats from last season (see what I mean about easy?): a Halloween tabletop vignette from my book Ultimate Cookies, as well as other surprises.

Creepy, crawly, spooky or ghoulish . . . all are fair game, as long as the cookie is yours and you’re willing to share it. So, how ‘bout it? Let’s get this season started by linking up!

But, before you do, please read these posting instructions to learn more about why these collections exist and how they operate, and remember to upload your own work.

As I mentioned before, this month’s theme is simple: Halloween!

Trouble with any technical aspects of this collection? Direct those questions to Linky Tools; otherwise, shoot me an email and I’ll do my best to help out.

Live sweetly, as I say,

Julia M. Usher

Looks like I have something new to try next year! My kids love making sugar cookies for their friends on Halloween. These look like a challenge but we’re up for it!
