Nothing says Halloween like a black and white cat cookie! These cookies are sure to be a hit  at your Halloween party or event, or maybe just as neighborhood treat! Since a minimum amount of decorating is needed, even the kiddos can help! A list of steps is provided + a quick no-chill dough recipe is included at the bottom! Good luck & happy cookie making!






Roll your dough 1/4″ this make the cookies sturdy, it may seem a little thick but rather to have a cookie that holds up than one that breaks as your decorating it.




Add some powered sugar, just keep adding until your frosting seems thick, this frosting will be used for “outlining the face” Just add frosting to the bag, with a small circle tip to the end of the pastry bag, follow the face outline, let dry a couple minutes. This frosting should be so thick that it holds it’s shape.


Now, use the runing icing you made, use a plastic bottle or since this is a larger cookie you can just spoon the icing onto the cookie, spread it out over the entire cookie. This icing will stay inside the outline shape. Let dry a few more minutes before adding the white frosting for the face!


Sugar cookie recipe:

1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 cups all purpose flour

Bake 350 for 8 minutes! Recipe adapted from here, click here for the rest of the directions. Ps. I like a thick cookie so I made sure not to roll my cookies “too thin” see photo above.

Icing Frosting:

1/4 cup meringue powder
1 cup cold water (NOT hot)
2-4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix these all together, just watch the consistency, if your needing thicker frosting for piping then add powdered sugar. If you need thinner, add water, just a couple drops goes a long ways.
