Jed recently bought  Mattie Windsor and I a pair of Halloween cookie cutters.   I took his not-so-subtle hint and decided to take the opportunity to try out a new sugar cookie recipe from Cook’s Illustrated.   I used food coloring to dye half of the dough orange for pumpkins and left the other half white for ghosts.  Then I rolled out the dough and allowed Mattie Windsor to take over.  She had a blast cutting out the shapes and placing them on the cookie sheets, but her favorite part was gobbling up her freshly baked confections.  She truly is my little cookie monster.
