Looking for things on Pinterest to create for this Halloween, and loving to always make interesting things, this cute Halloween cat cookie idea I thought would be a shoe in.
Not as easy as I thought.
I used ready made cookie mix, and probably I should have went with my own recipe, but I wanted to keep things simple this year. Pillsbury isn’t that bad a mix, in a pinch. Just don’t over work the dough.
I did and they became icky, sticky messes that didn’t quite want to form into balls.
Into the oven they went. Ten minutes later, I grabbed a fork, and while they were still hot I made myself some whiskers.
For the noses I used peanut butter mms, just because I like the chocolate and peanut butter combo. I know the photo used red hots, but I decided to be different, and beside I am not really a fan of red hots. For eyes, I used candy corn. The only trouble I had with this is that the cookies cooled too fast and that made for candy that didn’t stay put.
I think the cookies turned out great, but looking back at it, I realized that I forgot the ears. Oops. Didn’t think about it and actually I am not sure where I would have been able to create them. I am just not skilled like that. That’s ok, I forgive myself. Beside I think there is a breed of cats with no eyes. Right? Maybe not.
Anyway, what do you think? What is your favorite cookie to create. Tell me in the comments below.
