Harvest scarecrow cookies

Turning sugar cookies into Harvest scarecrow cookies is a cinch with just a few ingredients you may already have in your pantry.

It’s fun and easy to “dress” vanilla sugar cookies as sweet scarecrows by adding shredded wheat “straw hair,” a sugar wafer “hat,” and a smiling red licorice face.

A sugar wafer cookie creates the scarecrow’s hat and shredded wheat cereal makes picture-perfect straw hair. For his friendly face, add candy pieces and licorice.
