Best Cookie Recipes for Goblins, Monsters, and Zombies

Each week, we ask The Daily's Meal Culinary Content Network of food bloggers to share their favorite recipes connected to a weekly theme — this practice is affectionately called "SWAT" (Sharing With A Theme), and October is all about Halloween.

Last week, our bloggers sent their favorite spooky eats and treats to make for Halloween that included both sweet and savory Halloween creations, but this week, it's all about  cookie confections, concoctions, and creations.
