Baking Pillsbury Halloween cookies is super easy. All you need is a baking sheet, some parchment paper, and an oven.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

Tips for decorating Pillsbury Halloween cookies

  • Let the cookies cool completely before decorating to prevent the icing from melting.
  • Use a small spatula or knife to spread the icing evenly on the cookie surface.
  • Get creative with your designs! Try making different faces or using different colored sprinkles.
  • For easier decorating, place the icing in a piping bag or plastic zip-top bag and cut a small hole in the corner for more precise application.
  • Let the icing dry completely before storing or packaging the cookies to avoid smudging.
  • Have fun and don’t worry about making them perfect – it’s all part of the Halloween spirit!
