Halloween Recipe-Black Cat Cookies

Since Halloween is right around the corner, I thought I’d share a fun Halloween recipe with you. I made these fun black cat cookies last night with my boys and they loved them. They are a great recipe to make with kids because there are lots of things they can do. They rolled the dough, flattened, whisker-ized, and added the eyes and noses. Just make sure you have an older child add the eyes and noses, because you have to do it as soon as you pull them out of the oven, and the pan will still be very hot.
Black Cat Cookies- a perfect Halloween recipe!

Aren’t they cute? Go make a Halloween memory with your kiddos! 🙂
