Black Cat Cookies


Makes about 20 cookies


1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
All-purpose flour (optional)
White Decorator Icing
Black paste food coloring
Assorted colored candies


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove dough from wrapper according to package directions. Divide dough in half. Reserve 1 half; cover and refrigerate remaining half.
  2. Roll reserved dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Sprinkle with flour to minimize sticking, if necessary.
  3. Cut out dough using 3-1/2-inch cat face cookie cutter. Place cutouts 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough and scraps.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until firm but not browned. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  5. Prepare White Decorator Icing. Add desired amount of food coloring to make black. Decorate cookies with icing and assorted candies as desired to make cat faces.
