Evil Queen Poison Apple Cookie Recipe

To create the infamous “wishing” apple that puts Snow White to sleep, Evil Queen dunks it in a green potion that briefly reveals a goblin face before turning the skin an irresistible shade of shiny red. Covered with sweet green frosting, instead of potion, these Halloween cookies from DisneyFamily are equally tempting.

Helpful Tip: *For the best results, the sugar cookie dough should be on the stiff side. You might have to knead a little extra flour into store-bought doughs so the cookies will hold their shape well during baking.

Directions:

1. Wearing plastic kitchen gloves, knead red food coloring into the cookie dough (this is a fun job for kids). Wrap the dough in plastic and keep it chilled until you’re ready to use it.

2. Print and cut out the template.

3. Heat the oven. Cover your work surface with flour-dusted wax paper, and roll the dough out to 1/4-inch thickness.

4. Use the template and a kitchen knife to cut out the cookies, and then bake them according to the recipe directions. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

5. Working with one cookie at a time, gently press the broken end of a pretzel stick half into the top of the apple. Then generously frost the upper half of the cookie with green icing, spreading it right over the base of the pretzel. Use the knife to create a wavy lower edge so the icing looks like it is dripping down over the apple.

6. For eyes, press whole raisins into the icing. Snip a third raisin in half and use one piece for a nose.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
