I love Halloween!! Each year I get unnaturally excited over spooky recipes, Halloween costumes, and ghastly makeup! Facebook always reminds me of my previous year’s efforts. These reminders spur me on to keep up my tradition of going a little crazy at Halloween.

Although I get really excited, I’m not the most creatively gifted person in the world. So I tend to rely on treats which are really easy to produce. 

These cookie eyeballs are an absolute cinch! The cookie is my no-fail sugar cookie recipe which I have been making for years. It’s sweet and the perfect canvas for decorating with the royal icing. Then simply use the royal icing like glue, and stick the eyeball lolly onto the cookie. Voila, one disgusting delicious eyeball cookie complete!

Step by Step Sugar Cookie Eyeballs

For the is the recipe you will need:

  • my no-fail sugar cookie dough recipe, see below.
  • royal icing (recipe link to follow)
  • a bag of “body parts” wrapped candy. This is usually available at Big w or discount stores during Halloween each year. 
  • Thermomix Piping bag and tip set or equivalent.

    • Divide the dough in half and wrap each ball in plastic wrap.
    • Flatten the ball to 1 cm thickness and refrigerate until firm
    • Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees celsius
    • Prepare a cookie slide with baking paper.
    • Remove dough from the fridge and use a rolling pin to flatten to 3/4 of a cm thickness.
    • Use a circular cookie cutter to form shapes in the dough
    • Transfer the cookies to the prepared tray.
    • Bake 10-15 minutes. Leave on the cookie slide to cool fully.

    Royal Icing

    • Place butterfly whisk in TM Bowl.
    • Add egg white and lemon juice to TM bowl. Beat 30 sec/Speed 4.

    • Scrape down the bowl. Beat 10 sec/Speed 4.


    • Place the royal icing into a piping bag with a medium size circular tip
    • Pipe a large circle of icing in the middle of each cookie. The icing should be larger than the lolly eyes.
    • Press an eyeball into the centre of the icing.


    Always flatten the cookie dough prior to resting in the fridge. The dough will chill a lot quicker and it will be easier to work with when rolling it out.
    Store the completed cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
