Bloody Good Cookies


Tonight is the S3 finale of True Blood. That certainly flew by! And I managed to see the entire season without paying an extra cent to Comcast for HBO so yay me!

It was quite the summer in Bon Temps – dumb boys, annoying vampires and mouthwatering biscuits…I hope we don’t have to wait nearly a year again for S4.

To celebrate I thought I’d do something special. I wanted to bake cookies and thought that finding vampire cookie cutters should be the easiest thing in the world. I mean, Halloween stuff is all over the place already and Vampires are hot! They’re everywhere! However, I had trouble finding any cookie cutters that had a caped vamp or even some fangs.

So instead I googled and found this recipe and I made my own damn Vampire Cookies thankyouverymuch!:

Sugar cookies filled with jam and poked with “bite marks”, then you ooze the jam out for “blood” (and I experimented with red icing.) I only had strawberry, but I think next time I’ll try raspberry for added bloodiness. I’m pretty pleased with them.

Happy Finale Viewing Fangbangers!

  1. Hey – they came out great! You could start a side business with Jill making ‘themed’ desserts for parties that are given with favorite characters in mind!

    • Linda I am SO on board with that! However I do think it’ll just be me and Amy in the back of the store eating all the Bloody Good Cookies, Larry Cake, and Brandon Brownies!

      They look great!! I had an idea for vampire cupcakes for Halloween this year-we can market them as a 2 for 1 deal!

  3. Ooh, I LOVE IT! Those look so cool (and bloody tasty too!) What a great idea?

    These would be perfect for a vampire-themed party. (Say, for the TVD finale?) They could be served alongside red sangria (made using ONLY red fruits), and red velvet cake.

    If dinner was being served, guests could select from any range of appetizers, as long as it comes in red sauce.

    Oh, and everyone would have to dress in black, wear fangs, and bite eachother all night. Now, that’s my idea of a perfect evening. 😉
