Zombie Llama Cut Out Sugar Cookies Recipe

October is here and you know what that means! Super fun spookiness in the kitchen. Evan and I had a blast making these zombie llama and severed hand sugar cookies. This is an easy cut-out sugar cookies recipe that can be used for any season.

Zombie Llama and Severed Hand Sugar Cookies

If you’re having brains for a snack, then it only makes sense to have zombie llamas and severed body parts join the party. With a hint of orange flavor and strawberry jam for a bloody garnish, these are disgustingly delicious.


  • Sugar cookie mix
  • Llama and tiny hand cookie cutters (or whatever shape you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract
  • Flour
  • Rolling pin
  • Strawberry jam
  • Food coloring
  • Toothpicks


  • Prepare dough per package instructions for cut out cookies substituting any liquid with milk and orange extract. For us that meant decreasing the butter by 1 tbsp and using a small egg instead of a large one.

  • Evenly space them on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  • Using a toothpick or knife dipped in red food coloring, carve out small chunks of dough to look like bleeding wounds. Use black or a dark mixture of the food coloring to add depth to the wounds.
  • You can garnish with the jam before or after baking, or both.*
  • Bake per package instructions or until golden brown.

*Adding the jam before baking creates a coagulated look while garnishing with it after the cut out sugar cookies have baked provides a fresher guts look.

Serve with cold milk to complete these easy Halloween Recipes. Your guests will be screaming for more!
