After the turkey this year, it’s Thanksgiving Cat Cookies for dessert!
Hands down, the cookie I am most thankful for is peanut butter.
Peanut butter cookies are my all-time favorite comfort food. You’d think it would be chocolate, but no. Fact: When I was little, I would ask my mom to make peanut butter cookies for me for my birthday instead of cake!
But these adorable cookies do contain chocolate. So I am doubly thankful for these sweet treats!
Betty Crocker™ Peanut Butter Cookie Mix is the bomb and makes these cookies super easy.
If you want puffy cats, add a couple of tablespoons of flour to the batter. I prefer puffy fat cats to flat cats!
Roll the dough into balls. Don’t flatten them if you want fat cats—just bake them up!
Turn a chocolate candy-coating wafer upside down and squeeze a small dollop of white cookie icing in the middle.
Then push a mini peanut butter cup upside down in the middle of the icing so it oozes out the bottom and forms a ring around the peanut butter cup.
Put a yellow confetti sprinkle on the white rim for the buckle.
For the eyes, make two dots on the cookie with the melted chocolate with a toothpick. Glue a black sprinkle in the middle of the cookie for the nose with the melted chocolate. Add a mouth and whiskers too (those aren’t shown here).
Now add the peanut butter cup hat to the cookie with the melted chocolate.
Peanut butter chips for the ears are perfect, doncha think?
So cute, you might have to start Thanksgiving dinner with dessert this year!
