Batty Sugar Cookies
1 roll (16.5 oz.) Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Sugar Cookies
1/4 cup All-purpose flour
1 container (12 oz.) Fluffy white whipped ready-to-spread frosting
2 tsps Black paste food color
32 Candy eyes
2 Tbsps Black sanding sugar, if desired
1 tube (4.25 oz) orange decorating icing
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, knead cookie dough and flour with hands until well mixed. On floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured 3-inch bat-shaped cookie cutter. On ungreased cookie sheet, place cutouts 2 inches apart. Reroll dough and cut additional cookies. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely. Tint frosting with black food color. Frost cookies with frosting; attach candy eyes. Sprinkle cookies with black sugar. Pipe ears and mouth with orange icing. Let stand until set.
Expert Tips: If you use a larger 5-inch bat-shaped cookie cutter, you’ll get 10 cookies and need to bake them a few minutes longer.

Halloween Tin Can Luminaries
Halloweenies with Mustard Dip
Prep 20 mins | Total 40 mins | Servings 44
1 can (8 oz.) Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
44 Cocktail-size smoked link sausages (from a 1 lb. pkg)
1/2 cup Creamy Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp Dried oregano leaves
Heat oven to 375°F. Line two 15x10x1-inch pans with cooking parchment paper. On work surface, roll dough sheet out to 14x11-inch rectangle. Cut vertically to make two 11x7-inch rectangles. Cut crosswise into total of 44 (7x1/2-inch) strips. Pat sausages dry with paper towels. Wrap 1 strip of dough around each sausage to look like a little mummy; press firmly at each end to secure. Place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart for even browning. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix mustard and oregano. Serve sausages warm with mustard dip.
Expert Tips: Instead of using a refrigerated flaky dough sheet, try rolling these little weenies in puff pastry. Recipe by Pillsbury.
