BLACK CAT COOKIES

Found this on Pinterest:  Holiday Cottage http://www.holidaycottagepage.com/  
My notes are in red.



1. Combine in large bowl and beat at medium speed until well mixed:
          2 cups sugar
         1 cup butter, softened

2. Add 3 eggs, one egg at a time, beating well after each addition.

3. Add 1 Tablespoon vanilla; beat until well mixed.
 
4. Combine in medium bowl:
         3 cups all-purpose flour
         ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa
         ½ tsp. baking powder
         ½ tsp. baking soda
         ½ tsp. Salt

5. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix on low speed. Increase speed and beat until well mixed.

6. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten to ½ inch thick. Wrap each half in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours.)

7. Heat oven to 350OF. Roll out first pack of dough on lightly floured surface to ¼ inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch round cookie cutter (biscuit cutter works well.) Place onto ungreased cookie sheet or parchment covered cookie sheet.

8. Using fingers, pinch up ears at top of each circle. Place 2 pieces of candy corn onto cookie for eyes, and one red cinnamon candy for nose (heart-shaped cinnamon candies turned upside down work well. Press tines of fork on each side below eyes to make whiskers.




9. Bake 7-9 minutes or until cookies are set. Let cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.
