Treat Your Ghouls with Easy to Make Halloween Goody Bags

This weekend I made some trick or treat goody bags that I’m going to surprise some little ghouls that I know with.

I used my Cricut to cut out the gift tags, and I used my Halloween stamps to decorate both the bags and the tags.  I added a little orange ribbon as a finishing touch.

Once the bags were decorated, I filled them with Spooky Eyes Wrapped Gumballs and Sixlets from SweetWorks Candy

It was a little hard slipping the candy past this guy, but I managed, and it was well worth the risk!  

What kind of candy are you passing out this year for Halloween?

Trick or Treat…

Wishing everyone a Happy Halloween with Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies!

1 c. pumpkin

1/2 c. margarine, softened

 1 c. brown sugar

 3/4 c. sugar

1 egg

 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

 1 1/2 tsp. salt

 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. baking powder

 1/4 tsp. baking soda

 1 1/4 c. flour

3/4 c. quick-cook oatmeal

1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips for melting

In a large bowl combine pumpkin, margarine, sugar, egg, spices and vanilla.  With electric mixer beat until mixed well.  Add flour, oats, baking powder, and soda.  Mix until all ingredients are combined.

Drop onto  lightly greased cookie sheets.  Bake for about 12-15 minutes.  Cool slightly on cookie sheet before removing.  Transfer to cooling rack.  Melt chocolate for 1 minute, or longer if necessary, in microwave.  Drizzle on top of each cookie.

Recipe adapted from Southern Living 1979 Annual Recipes.  I omitted nuts, chocolate chips, and raisins, and added a tsp. of vanilla.  *** Note – after the cookies sat overnight in an airtight container they got extremely moist, so moist they are hard to handle.  I think  I’ll  increase the flour a bit  when  I make them again.  They are very flavorful – a nice spicy cookie.
