Halloween Scares: Spooky Halloween Tree

Hey Guys! Another Halloween recipe post today! This is a delicious Spooky Halloween tree that I can't wait to make! I give full credit to this website: I want you guys to know that I got this recipe from another website and I just wanted to share it with you! 

Spooky Halloween Tree


box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white or yellow cake mix
cup shortening
cup butter or margarine, softened
teaspoon vanilla
Orange liquid or paste food color, as desired
Step 1: 
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.

Step 2: 
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, cutting out eyes, nose, etc., if desired, using sharp knife. 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.

Step 4: 
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.
