Simple Bat Cookies with a Twist!
I love mini cookie cutters!
There is something so sweet about a tiny cookie.
Aren’t we all suckers for anything tiny?
Otherwise, we wouldn’t have so many miniature versions of things.
I mean think about it, we love to play mini-golf, drive mini-cars, eat mini-muffins, own miniature dogs, decorate with mini-blinds.
Our gadgets have even gotten smaller over time and we pay more for them.
(Remember the original cell phones)
We love the IPad, so of course they had to make a mini version.
Let’s face it tiny is cute.
These tiny bat cookies are so easy and can be made very quickly.
You can make a ton of them out of one batch of dough.
They are very simple to outline and
and fill in with the icing.
I love a little sparkle!
I think sprinkling sanding sugar on to the wet icing adds a lot to these little cookies.
This cookie is fun all on its own!
If you just want to make these, they will be a huge hit!
For an even easier cookie, make them with chocolate dough and skip the icing.
(Also not as messy for those little fingers)
Sometimes you need a shortcut.
Most days you need a shortcut.
Seriously, Everyday you need a shortcut.
Simpy framed they are fabulous!
These were the two sets that were used to create the two cookies in one.
For the bat above, we used the mini-bat cutter from the mini-set.
For the moon, we found this awesome set with the cat face and moon, at Michaels.
The chocolate dough was cut with both cutters.
Then we used the mini-bat cutter to cut a piece out of the moon and placed the bat into the empty spot.
Just like putting a puzzle together.
Next the cookie was baked, cooled and decorated.
(My favorite part)
We outlined and filled the bat the same way we did with the single bat cookie.
It’s important to sugar the bat before icing the moon.
You don’t want the black sugar getting into the golden moon.
Once the moon was iced, then all that was left was to add the final touches.
We carefully placed some star candy confetti decorations.
Then sprinkled it with yellow sanding sugar and voila!
Now to make a fun Halloween platter use both cookies together!
Very easy and not terribly time consuming.
They are also great to take to a school party!
A perfect Little Halloween Treat!
