May be we can get some small witch dolls and make them sit on these cookies. wow! it will look so cute! wont they? It is a simple Halloween cookie recipe which sure will be a hit among kids.

Ingredients: (Makes: 36)

1 bag peanut butter cookie mix

1/3 cup all purpose flour

1 bag of Pretzel sticks

1 tube of Icing (Decorating frosting) of any colour


Preheat the oven at 375 degree F.

Prepare the cookie mix according to the package direction with the addition of the flour.

Divide it into 36 small portions.

Shape the dough pieces into small triangle of 1/4 inch thick.

Arrange these in the cookie sheet with 2 inch apart.

Insert the pretzel to one end.

Take a fork and press it on the dough to make broom bristles.

Bake for 12 to 15 min.

Cool the cookies and decorate it with the frosting.

Broom Cookie is ready and now we need to wait for the witch to show up! Easy huh?

The mistakes I made the first time baking these Broom cookies:

The dough was very lose so it did not stand properly in the cookie sheet

I did not have pretzel that time so I tried making the stick with the dough itself which was an absolute blunder!

I made them too thin so it was very crispy and broke easily.


If the bristles doesn't come properly with fork then don't worry. Bake them and draw them with the frosting. Either way they will look so cute.

If anyone try this Broom cookies, please let me know. I am kind of sentimentally attached to this cookies!


wow, these broomstick cookies look cute for sure! Thanks for the lovely recipe dear.

Sangeeth, that's coming out really good this time...congratulations on sticking with it and trying it out again.
