Today I have both the Easy Halloween Monster Cookies recipe and Halloween Treat Bag Toppers – Free Printables for you! I’m so glad fall is here and I can start baking again. Aren’t you? I love being in the kitchen, having fun with baking and creating tasty cookie recipes or adapting them. Before I headed to take care of my grandkids I decided to do two things to bring to them. Bake monster cookies and add them into cute treat bags toppers for Halloween. I’m not going to be there for this Halloween this year we’ll be traveling.
- Let’s start making cookies! They are so fun for Halloween. The kids loved them.

You can see and shop baking season must-haves on DearCreatives Amazon Page
Let me give you a few reasons we loved them and a closer look at their benefits. Whether you are starting out as a new baker/cook or updating some of your kitchen tools this might be helpful for you.
Must-Have baking tools
Every baker should have a rolling pin. The T-Fal 12 ” barrel rolling pin comes with stoppers that keep the rolling pin on your counter surface. It’s non-stick! I can’t wait to make pie dough and share it in action with you! So stay tuned. This isn’t a light rolling pin it is a nice weight that will make rolling easier!
Accuracy is key when it comes to baking. I have more than one set of measuring cups this style (measuring cups)but, you can start out with one set. And now these too. I love how the T-fal measuring cups have rubber tips. They help them stay in place when you set them down and stack for storage. They are really sturdy and nice. You can see in the first image I even set a spoon in them for icing and they didn’t even tip over. They come with a lifetime warranty.
Measuring spoons are used for measuring baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon…The T-fal measuring spoons were made the same as the measuring cups. They are dishwasher safe, rubber tips and lifetime warranty. I love that if your baking with kids you don’t have to worry about these breaking vs. my ceramic ones.
The T-fal measuring cup is a 2 cup capacity and has a rubber handle. It’s really made nicely for pouring the liquid. For this recipe, I used it for measuring flour. Having non-glass is great for baking with kids. But, this a handy style.
Watch for my fall beef boneless ribs slow cooker recipe. I used it for pouring my broth. I do like using plastic as it is lighter to hold and great for when you have kids in the kitchen learning to cook or bake.
The cookie/baking sheets work really well for even heating. The T-fal Baking sheet has the airbake bottom, which really is great for getting even heating for any of your cookies or baked goods. It has a no-rust guarantee and 10-year warranty.
The Halloween cookies were a big hit with the kids. The new supplies for in the kitchen were a bit hit for us! What is your must-have bakeware?
