Happy Halloween!

Trick or Treat! Here's a preview of Molly's costume. She's our little punkin! I think we'll take her around to a few houses in the neighborhood and call it good.
Festive Halloween cookies!
I had these black and orange sprinkles I bought a couple of years ago that I never used, so yesterday I finally decided to make something. I looked up a cookie recipe with sprinkles on and found this one. They were really good!

Chocolate Chip Sprinkle Cookies

2 cups butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup crisp rice cereal
1/2 cup colored candy sprinkles
1/2 cup chopped pecans

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.

And here's the link if you'd rather have it:
They were really easy and very yummy! I left the pecans out and forgot the oats, but they were still great!

Happy Halloween!
