Halloween Cookies (galletas para Halloween)

                                                                                                           





Just in time!! (I guess) 
Wasn't easy!
About three days without internet and  I couldn't make a new  post.
Finally I made these Halloween cookies:)

And I add here Jack (Nightmare before Christmas)
only cause Esperanza loves him and this is her Jack:)
BTW I find him adorable!

  25. Gloria, Cute cookies! The grandkids would love them except they live several hundred miles from here. We'd make these for Halloween to hand out to the little ghosts and gobblins but we live in the woods and we haven't had a trick or treater in over 5 years... Happy Halloween though... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
