Sweet Scarecrow Cookies

These autumn treats are so adorable and easy to assemble, they won't scare anyone away. In fact, set out a batch, and kids are sure to flock to them. So easy, even for the smallest hands. No baking needed so it is a wonderful project for school parties or a pre-school class.
Cookies (ours were about 2 1/2 inches in diameter)
White frosting
Assorted sugar wafers (ours were about 2 1/2 inches long)
Candy corn
Mini chocolate chips
Bran cereal (we used Kellogg's All-Bran Extra Fiber)
Chocolate sprinkles
1. Frost the top of each cookie. 2. Cut a sugar wafer in half. Add a dollop of frosting to the top edge of the cookie and stick a wafer half to it for a hat top, as shown. 3. Place a whole sugar wafer just below the hat top for a brim. Use a little more frosting to decorate it with slices of candy corn or mini chocolate chips. 4. Press pieces of bran cereal hair into the frosting around the hat. 5. For the face, press on a candy corn nose, mini chocolate chip eyes, and a chocolate sprinkle stitched mouth.

These are adorable. I might make them for the hip joint art stroll party and call them susie's cookies.

Oh so cute! I have to point my d-i-law this way. She has kids, ages 9 and 7 and 3. They should have fun with this project.

She's one of those moms with the patience to do these kids-bake projects. Unlike me, who never had the patience. Badddddddddd me! ,-)
