I am in "thinking-about-the-holidays" mode! For me that begins the first day of September and continues through January 1st. Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday and it takes a lot of planning! (I am also hoping to avoid cleaning my house today by playing with recipes).

This recipe lets you play with your cookie cutters (hooray!). Or, of course, you can just use a drinking glass to cut out circles!

Recipe is from the 1933 "All About Home Baking" cookbook.
