Halloween Treats - Vampire Bites

•1 ½ cups flour
•¾ teaspoon baking soda
•½ teaspoon cinnamon
•½ cup butter, softened
•½ cup packed brown sugar
•1 egg
•Red food coloring
•¼ cup red decorator’s sugar
•24 pieces MILKY WAY® Minis
•1 tube vanilla frosting
•Plastic wrap
•Electric mixer
•Large bowl
•Medium bowl
•2 cookie sheet pans

•1. Combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.
•2. Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the egg; beat well. Slowly add the flour mixture into the dough until blended. Add enough food coloring to tint the dough a bright red. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
•3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line the cookie sheet pans with the parchment paper.
•4. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out 24 lip shapes. Otherwise, you can form the dough into 24 balls and flatten each slightly to create free-form shaped lips using your hands to pinch and shape the dough. Transfer these to the prepared cookie sheets. Re-roll the scraps if necessary.
•5. Sprinkle the cookies with red sugar. Bake 7-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven, and immediately press a MILKY WAY® Minis into the center of each cookie. Cool completely. Use vanilla frosting to pipe fangs over the candy.
