It's tradition that we bake lots and lots of cookies for Halloween. I used my favorite butter cookie recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Christmas Cookie Book
. I also made a double batch of Sherry Yard's Master Sugar Cookie recipe from The Secrets of Baking
. Rose's recipe is still my favorite.
We made cookies for the bake sale at our annual Halloween Hoot, Levi's Halloween party at school, Hebrew school's weekly dinner, our neighbors and some just for fun.

1. In a mixing bowl mix room temp. butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg, lemon zest and vanilla. When mixed, add flour.
2. Divide dough in half. Wrap each half in plastic wrap and put in fridge for one hour.
3. Roll dough into 1/8" thickness. Press desired shapes. Bake 350* for 10 minutes. Rotate cookie sheets after 5 minutes. Edges of the cookies should be slightly brown.
These last for a few days. They are delicious and easy and great project to do with the kids.
