Bloodshot Eyeballs

Yield

Makes about 2-1/2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 container (16 ounces) white frosting
Green or blue gummy candy rings
1 tube (0.6 ounce) black decorating gel
1 tube (0.6 ounce) red decorating gel

Preparation

  1. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat together butter and both sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Add flour mixture gradually; mix well. Divide dough into two oval discs. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Draw oval "eye" shape (about 4X2 inches) on piece of cardboard. Cut out shape and use as stencil for cutting cookie dough. Place cutouts 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely.
  3. Spread frosting evenly over cooled cookies. Use candy rings to form an "iris" on each cookie. Fill in pupils and make eyelashes with black decorating gel. Decorate cookies with red decorating gel for bloodshot effect.
