1/2 Photos of Puzzle Cookies
This recipe was designed for Halloween but would work for any holiday or event with a change of cookie cutters. I think that the kids will LOVE this! This will make 6 "assembled" cookies out of the purchased but you can always share the "pieces". The colors are optional to use as and if you desire.
