To whet your appetite for The Pitch's annual Best of Kansas City issue, we're counting down our favorite Top 50 dishes each weekday until October 7.

If only cookies that looked like fruits and vegetables had the same vitamins and minerals that real fruits and vegetables contain. But there's something so alluring about an iced sugar cookie, particularly those in vibrant autumn colors -- pumpkin orange, squash yellow, the rusty blush of fall leaves,Frankenstein green.

Frankenstein green?

"Next week we officially kick off our Halloween season with the iced cookies that kids really love," says Rachel Finn, who co-owns Mission's Chacko's Eatery with her husband, David. The bakery is freshly installed in its new location at 6009 Johnson Drive. "We'll have Frankenstein, ghosts and Jack-o'-lanterns. All hand-decorated."

More conservative cookie lovers may prefer the traditional iced autumn leaves, which, like the other Chacko's iced cookies, are dipped in a powdered-sugar glaze before being decorated with frosting.

A more healthy seasonal cookie is the cranberry bar, made with dried cranberries. Grown-ups love the bars, but the kids always reach for the sugarier iced version. Why not? They're prettier.
