Thought Bubble Cookies for Halloween

I made these cookies, in part, for Lilaloa's cookie challenge: Using one of your cookie cutters that you have never used before. Technically this is not a cookie cutter, but is meant for shaping pancakes.  Even so, I knew it would be great for making cookies too, and that's what I specifically bought it for.
These cookies were simple and fun to decorate.
I made some sugar cookies, used black tinted (AmerColor super black) royal icing for the base, and bright white AmeriColor for the writing (not icing). A small paintbrush was used for the white, along with a bit of water to dilute, and a paper towel or two to dab the brush. 
I have never tried this "chalkboard" technique before, but I really enjoyed the process and will definitely try it again sometime. You can bet I will also be using this "cookie cutter" again too. 
I think these black "thought bubble" cookies are perfect for Halloween!
