Skeleton Cookies


Skeleton Parade
The Skeletons are out tonight,
they march about the street
with bony bodies, bony heads and
bony hands and feet.

Bony, bony, bony bones
with nothing in between
Up and down and all around
They march on Hallowe'en!

 Skeleton Cookie Rewind! I could hardly wait for October to roll around so I could make these spooky cute little skeletons again. I posted them last year but I thought their little bones deserved another rattle.


 I made these little guys with my favorite Iced Spice Cookie recipe, but your favorite gingerbread man recipe would work just as well. Pipe on their bones and features with some royal icing and you've got yourself some cute little skeletons all ready for a skeleton parade. Are you scared yet?
