I did not do my usual sorting routine but sorted the pieces according to size into 6 different piles.
The border was fairly simple enough so I thought I would wip through this one pretty quick. Well such was not the case.
I did manage to get through all the large pieces first which were as simple as the border. As you can see above it is practically the first half of the puzzle. I had the pieces sorted and the border completed and the 1st half of the puzzle done in just over an hour.
Then I laid out the rest of the smaller pieces which may have added up to 175 - 200 pieces. With the fancy cuts and the color blends it did become a bit of a trickster but quite delightful. At that point I was pretty much doing the same as the Sugar Skull Cookie Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzle shared in the video at the bottom of this page.
The matte finish is always nice on these puzzles. As is the cut and quality of Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzles.
In the end, as you can see in the close up photos below, the pieces do fit perfectly smooth together which compliment the extremely patient production of these Halloween Cookies to form a terrific jigsaw puzzle for Halloween.
I highly recommend this jigsaw puzzle for the Family during the Halloween season. It's sure to bring out the haunting spirits or give you the desire to bake some really funky cookies!!!
