YoYo Cookies Reshaped For Halloween Recipe @pinch

If you want to bake cookies with kids for Halloween, try these yo-yo cookies. They are a very simple sugar cookie that's tender and has a hint of honey and brown sugar flavor. We filled them with strawberry jam. But add your favorite filling, such as peanut butter, cookie butter, or hazelnut spread... the list is endless. Have fun decorating them. We used pull-apart licorice for the legs and glued the eyes on with a dab of peanut butter. This tried and true recipe for jam-filled Yo-Yo Cookies has been loved in my family since the 1950s. I have learned that dressing up a family-favourite recipe is better than creating a seasonal masterpiece that contains too much artificial colour and flavour. In other words, kids like simple treats. To see the caterpillar I made from Yo-Yo Cookies, go to From the Cookie Jar Blog at www.getabiggerwagon.com. Honestly, my grandchildren preferred the spiders.
