How much are those Pillsbury halloween cookies with the pictures on them?

Question by lala: How much are those Pillsbury halloween cookies with the pictures on them?
I live in Michigan and I’ll probably go to Meijer or Kroger to get them but I can’t find out how much they are!

Does anyone know an average amount and where I could find them?

Answer by Chef Quiet
They are usually where the biscuits and cookies are, sometimes they are in those middle coolers that are in the middle of the aisle at the store we shop at. And they were only 1.88 as well, we don’t have those stores in Missouri.

I want to make these types of cookies, the frosting, the shape. All of that.
Also, how could I make sure they stay fresh if I’m shipping them across the country?
Thank you!

They are simple sugar cookies it looks like.

If you want a very firm icing you can use a “Royal Icing”.
3 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 (16 ounce) package powdered sugar, sifted
paste food coloring

Directions
1 Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl.
2 Beat at medium speed on mixer until frothy.
3 Add half of powdered sugar, mixing well.
4 Add remaining sugar and beat 5-7 minutes at high speed, until mixture is stiff and holds a peak.
5 Color with desired amount of paste food coloring.
6 NOTE: Icing dries very quickly; keep icing covered with a damp cloth when not using.

You can use bottles from the paint section in a craft store to get a fine tip and decorate with them…

Other option… used canned white frosting…tint you as desire.

Frost base of cookies. Thin the frosting in the microwave until the thickness you want…decorate with them.

Either way, leave the cookies sit out overnight to fully dry.

Be sure to layer waxed paper between cookies to ship them. Seal them in airtight baggies and pack well with popped popcorn as cushioning.

How long will my holiday cookies last if i make them today?

Question by Telling It Like It Is: How long will my holiday cookies last if i make them today?
I don’t have much time to bake when I come home from work and I will be giving out my holiday cookies starting this Thursday.
If I make them this evening, will they be ok for everyone to eat within the next two weeks. I’m baking peanut butter cookies (the ones from the Betty Crocker mix).

My deepest sympathies to you and your family. But what a wonderful memory to your grandmother. This was my grandmothers recipe, maybe it is close.

1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup molasses
1 egg
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Sugar

Combine butter, brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt and cloves. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (1 to 2 hours).

Heat oven to 375° F. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until set.

Why do peanut butter cookies almost always have the fork criss-cross pattern on them?

Question by Singin’ with the Swing: Why do peanut butter cookies almost always have the fork criss-cross pattern on them?
I’ve always wondered why people fork this pattern into the top of peanut butter cookies, but no other kind of cookie.

What do you think?

Answer by April H
The cookie dough is placed as balls on the cookie sheet, then “forked” to flatten them. It’s tradition for the marks to be there and a sign of “homemade” cookies.
