VeganMoFo - Happy Halloweegan Vampire Cookies

This is my 19th Vegan MoFo post, so unless something unexpected happens tomorrow, I will reach my goal of 20 Halloweegan posts! Tomorrow, I would like to create a post with links to everyone that has made any fun Halloween vegan dishes and treats this month. If you've posted about something Halloween-y that you cooked and you would like me to link to it, just post a comment here and I'll add your post to the list.

Today I made Happy Vampire Cookies! And of course one Mr. Cranky Pants Vampire to balance things out.

Halloweegan Vampire Cookies

Any sugar cookie will work for this, but I had to make shortbread because I'm shortbread's #1 fan. I used a basic confectioner's sugar icing for the faces. White for the fangs, spinach juice instead of water for the green part, and extra dark cocoa powder for the black details. Mr. Wing-it ate Mr. Cranky Pants first to put him out of his misery. Poor Mr. Cranky pants, he never had a chance.

P.S: I'll probably blog pretty late tomorrow, so have a super Happy Halloween everyone!!
