Black Cat Cookies Recipe

1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
24 wooden craft or Popsicle sticks
48 candy corn candies
24 red-hot candies

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheets and set aside. (Do not use air-cushion baking sheet on these cookies, for best results.)

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Using hands, roll dough into 24 1 1/2-inch balls. Place balls 3 inches apart on baking sheets.

Insert a wooden stick into each cookie (perpendicular to the baking sheet). Flatten cookie with a glass dipped in sugar (do not smash so flat and thin that the cookie won't hold the stick properly; this should be a sturdy cookie). Pinch top edge of cookie to form ears, smoothing as you need to. For whiskers, press tines of a fork once into each side of cookie.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are set. Remove from the oven; immediately press on candy corn for eyes and a red-hot candy for a nose on each cookie.

Remove to wire racks to cool.

Makes 24.
