Scarecrow Cookies

Makes 12 Cookies


  • 12 - 2 ½ - 3” diameter cookies
  • 24 – crème filled cookies
  • 1 cup frosting
  • ½ cup toasted coconut or shredded wheat pulled apart
  • 24 candy eyes
  • 12 noses
  • Black candy pearls or mini-chocolate chips


  1. Start with cookies – any kind about 2 ½ - 3” in diameter.
  2. Frost them.
  3. Next you need a full crème filled wafer and another cut about 2/3 of the way.  Lucky you gets to each the other 1/3 leftover.  If you want to make your hat a different color – Color Mist works real well on them if it’s a darker color.  Put them on the frosting.
  4. Add the straw.  I used Toasted Coconut but you can also use shredded wheat.
  5. Then add a face.  I had candy eyes so I used them but you can also use mini-chocolate chips.  For the nose, a cute little heart or daisy accent works well.  For the mouth, I used black pearls but again, mini-chocolate chips would work too.
