Jack O Lantern Cookie Cake Recipe For Halloween

October 24, 2022 2 min read

Vanilla cookies sandwiching cream cheese buttercream, topped with lemon flavoured royal icing and sprinkles - yes please!  I've included the full recipe for you at the bottom of this page.  It tastes a lot like a cheesecake but with extra buttery cookie goodness.

I used my jack o lantern or pumpkin baking template to make this cookie cake.

Roll out your cookie dough on either a silicone baking mat or baking paper.  Put a layer of baking paper on top to make it easy to roll out your dough and check that your template is going to fit on your rolled out dough.  Slide the rolled out dough onto a baking sheet and place in the fridge to chill for at least 10 minutes before cutting out the shapes.

Using the DoughCuts cookie dough cutting tool cut out one pumpkin with the cutouts for the face for the top layer and one with just the whole pumpkin for the bottom layer.

After baking the cookies and cooling them you can decorate the top layer of cookie with royal icing.  You can buy preprepared royal icing mixture at the supermarket that you just add water and/or flavouring to.  For mine I substituted some of the water with lemon juice to make lemon flavoured royal icing.  

After carefully moving your bottom cookie to a cake board or serving platter pipe cream cheese buttercream on.  I used a fine star 13mm icing nozzle.

Very carefully move the top layer cookie onto the buttercream.

I smoothed the buttercream out in the cutouts on the face and added some Halloween sprinkles.  Chill the cookie cake before serving.  You'll have yourself a simple but delicious Halloween treat for the whole family.
