Voodoo Doll Halloween Cookies

Voodoo Doll Halloween CookiesI’m sure most of you have heard about Voodoo dolls or have seen them in movies. They’re usually associated with witch doctors, black magic, and, of course, those pins! Voodoo dolls can be used for all types of things, both positive and negative, but since it is Halloween, after all, I’m making mine a little more spooky and menacing…although they are still pretty darn cute, right? These Voodoo doll Halloween cookies are really easy to make and decorate, and add a fun Halloween touch to your parties or gatherings! Do you dare to give them a try?

Toothpicks died blue, replace the traditional pins you see stuck into voodoo dolls, and they are really easy to create! I tried other colors too, but red turned out too pink and much too cute for these guys. You can switch up your “pins” and dye them any color you want, but I really liked how the blue color made them seem more like pins.

The dough for these Voodoo doll Halloween cookies is also not very sweet, so don’t feel bad about totally loading up on the decorating frosting to give the cookies a sweeter taste.

Voodoo Doll Halloween CookiesHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 3 Tsp. Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Sticks (3/4 Cups) Butter
  • 1/4 Tsp. Vanilla
  • 4 Tbsp. Water
  • Parchment Paper
  • Gingerbread Man Cookie Cutter
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • Toothpicks
  • Cookie Decorating Gel Tubes

In a small bowl, add 3-4 drops of blue food coloring to 1 cup of water. Place the toothpicks into the blue water and allow them to sit for a couple of hours to really soak up the color.

Remove from the water and allow them to dry completely before using.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, butter, sugar, and vanilla.

Slowly add the water until a dough has formed.

On a lightly floured counter top or flat surface, roll out the dough until it is about 2mm thick.

Cut gingerbread men shapes out, using the cookie cutter, and place the cut-outs onto the parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until just slightly golden.

Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool completely.

Voodoo Doll Halloween CookiesOnce the cookies have cooled, begin to decorate them with “voodoo doll” designs.

Once your toothpicks have dried completely, break each one of them in half and stick them into the decorated sugar cookies in random places. You can add more than one toothpick “pin” to each of the cookies too!
