Use Halloween cookie cutters to transform potatoes into crispy Jack-o-Lanterns, ghosts & goblins. You’ll need the largest sweet potatoes and potatoes you can find and some small to medium sized Halloween cookie cutters. To create these treats, peel the skin off of the potatoes and slice horizontally 1/8 inch thick. Press out shapes by pushing down hard and using a paring knife, carefully carving eyes, nose and mouth. Place your shapes into a large bowl of ice water and save the scraps in another bowl (you can cook and eat these too). The potatoes can be baked or lightly fried, but sweet potatoes work best fried unless you have a convection oven. For the fry method, heat a large non-stick skillet with 1/8 inch of olive oil. Remove the potatoes from the water and dry. On a medium high heat, cook several at a time for approximately 2-3 minutes per side until golden. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with kosher salt. If freezing, lay on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze uncovered until hardened. Transfer to freezer bags and seal out any excess air. Re-heat the day of your party in pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for approximately 8 minutes and display on a platter.
