Icing the Evil Eye mini cookies:

-Allow the outline on the cookie at least 30 seconds to dry before filling the body of the cookie in with the other white icing*. ( After outlining all of the round cookies you can push the some of the remaining icing into a bowl and add the 1 tsp of water and mix well to get the right consistency. Using a butter knife to spread it from the outlined part inwards to the center.
-Reserve the rest of the white icing in the frosting bag for the whites of the eyes.
-While the iced cookie is still damp begin to build on the evil eye.
-Divide the iced cookies into thirds.
-Drop a dot or orange icing in the center of the cookie, add a smaller black dot on top of the orange dot then lastly drop a small white dot on top of the black dot .
-Repeat the same instructions as given for the orange eyes for making the green and purple evil eyes.
-Set these aside and allow to completely dry about 4+ hours.

This is such a cute idea. I will definitely try this for Halloween.
I love iced sugar cookies. These are so cute. It’d make a fun treat for the kids to take in to school.
OMG this is such a creative recipe idea – perfect for the kids… cant wait to try it!!!!
I love these ideas!!!
These look so real! What a great Halloween treat idea!
Amy Green says
These cookies look like so much fun. I plan on varying the recipe slightly by making one tiny addition-by putting thin, red icing strips on the whites-of-the-eyeballs area, therefore making the eyes look bloodshot and even more scary! Also, I can place two cookies on a place, side-by-side, framing them with licorice strips. Monster eyeglasses!
These cookies are a cute Halloween treat. I have to be honest though, they do not look evil. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
