Cookies are a dessert that I often make for gatherings and parties. I like how they are individual and no plates or utensils are needed. This makes them easy for people to grab and eat or even take home with them. 

These cookie recipes have Halloween related animals like black cats, spiders, and owls. There are a lot of eye ball and monster cookies. There are classic Halloween cookies with pumpkins and ghosts. Then there are some other unique and fun cookies in this list as well.

I hope you have found some Halloween cookie recipe inspiration here. There are so many cute and clever ideas for Halloween parties, school gatherings, and spooky movie nights.

Candy is, of course, the biggest sweet treat that we see around the Halloween holiday, but there are so many other fun treats to enjoy like cookies. I find cookies to be a big hit at parties. You can serve them at your Halloween party or bring them with you as a hostess gift or to a potluck.  

Cookies are also a dessert you can easily wrap up in something like a cellophane treat bag or a Halloween treat bag to share with your neighbors, friends, and family. They make a fun party favor as well for people to take home with them. 

We love giving away cookies and sharing Halloween treats!
