Scarecrow Cookies


Makes 36 servings

It’s fun and easy to “dress” vanilla sugar cookies as sweet scarecrows by adding shredded wheat “straw hair,” a sugar wafer “hat,” and a smiling red licorice face.



1 package (17.5 ounces) sugar cookie mix

1 teaspoon MCCORMICK All Natural Pure Vanilla Extract

1 container (16 ounces) vanilla frosting

54 sugar wafer cookies

Shredded wheat cereal, broken up

Assorted decorations, such as candy-coated pieces and red string licorice



1.Prepare cookie mix as directed on package, adding vanilla. Cut out rounds with 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter.

2.Bake and cool cookies as directed on package.

3.Frost cookies with vanilla frosting. For the scarecrow’s hat, break a sugar wafer cookie in half. Press wafer cookie half into the top of the frosted cookie. Place a whole wafer cookie below the cookie half. Press shredded wheat around sides of the face for straw hair. Use candy-coated pieces and string licorice to decorate the face.
