These buttery sugar cookies-on-a-stick are sure to be a hit at any family or neighborhood Halloween party!
Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine 1 cup butter, brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and cinnamon; beat at low speed until dough forms a ball.
Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten each to about 2 inches wide with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Insert craft stick to center of each cookie. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar and 1/4 cup butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, gradually adding enough half & half for desired spreading consistency. Tint with food color, if desired. Frost cookies; top with decorator candies or sprinkle with decorator sugars, if desired.
