Scarecrow Cookies

Big C had Scarecrow Day at school today. I saw these on Family Fun and we whipped up a batch. They're easy and super-cute! As you can see, we changed a few ingredients to fit what we had on hand.:) So, have fun using up all that trick-or-treat candy & Happy Halloween!
Scarecrow Cookies
Ingredients:
round Cookies (I made sugar cookies and cut them out with a drinking glass)
1 can White frosting
Assorted sugar wafers (about 2 1/2 inches long)
Candy corn
M & M's candies or Chocolate chips
Bran cereal (such as All-Bran) or Shredded Wheat
Licorice Strings

Directions:
Frost the top of each cookie. Cut a sugar wafer in half. Add a dollop of frosting to the top edge of the cookie and stick a wafer half to it for a hat top. Place a whole sugar wafer just below the hat top for a brim. Add a small licorice piece for hat trim. Press pieces of Shredded Wheat hair into the frosting around the hat. For the face, press on a candy corn nose, M & M eyes, and a licorice string mouth.

Oh I always seem to come here when I am hungry!!! You are so creative and clever. Do you think you would like to adopt a very mature child? I promise I would eat everything on my plate (and more than likely on everyone elses too!).
