Preparation of skeleton cookies

Actually, the recipe consists of making a stick figure and decorating it with a skeleton. Although, have you thought about making a real skeleton? We will tell you how to make several options!

  1. After turning on the oven and it is preheating, to about 170º with heat up and down, put the butter in a bowl and let it warm (or put it in the microwave at medium power for a couple of minutes).
  2. Mix the butter with the brown sugar , until it forms a mixture of a brown tone that looks like a cream. You are going to beat this mixture together with the medium egg , both the yolk and the white, until a homogeneous mixture is formed.
  3. On the other hand, sift the flour well , with the help of a spoon open like a volcano in the center and add the chocolate powder (it can be the one you like the most). Stir to integrate well.
  4. Pour the mixture of butter with sugar and egg into the flour and cocoa powder , at the same time that you start to beat vigorously. Thanks to this, you will see that a more consistent dough is formed each time . Add the vanilla essence and beat until you can’t anymore.
  5. So, with a little flour in your hands so that the dough doesn’t stick to you, knead the result of the combination for a couple of minutes . Form a ball, cover with plastic wrap and rest in the fridge for a few minutes.
  6. Has the dough already rested well? Okay, so take it out and flour the counter you’re going to work on. It’s time to make a decision: small figurines or a large skeleton? Our advice is that, after kneading the dough with a rolling pin, make figurines of people, with the help of a mold, since they are easier to work with later. But, if you don’t want to, you can take portions and give them the shapes of the bones to make a large chocolate skeleton. It requires more work, but the final result is impressive.
  7. Whatever your decision, go placing the result on the oven tray covered with parchment paper. Put in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes , everything will depend on the type of oven you have. When you take them out, let them cool for about 5 minutes.
  8. In the meantime, you are going to beat the icing sugar with the tablespoons of water , until you get a paste that will look like it is toothpaste. You are going to introduce said paste into a pastry bag (disposable or homemade) and you are decorating the body with the shape of the bones, so that it seems that it is a transparent human being that only the bones can be seen.
  9. You just have to repeat the process until you make all the cookies, which should be about 20, and decorate them with this fabulous mix… they couldn’t be sweeter!
