More About This Recipe
  • Sugar cookies decorated to look like patriotic cats are a fun party treat everyone will love!

    My husband loves the 4th of July. I mean, it’s his FAVORITE holiday. He is literally known throughout the county because of his fireworks display—I kid you not. Disneyland ain’t got nothin’ on us.

    But I decorate another way—with food. I love getting into the theme of things and making red, white and blue cakes, cookies, chips, dips, drinks, treats and other eats.

    The favorite cookie on the 4th at our house? My patriotic cat cookies—they’re exploding with cuteness!

    Here’s how we make them.

    Mix up some Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie dough.

    Roll out the dough and use an oval cookie cutter. Bake and let the cookies cool.

    Pipe half of the cookie with white icing. You’ve gotta have patience here and let the icing dry completely! I let these dry overnight just to be safe. I know, an iced cookie you can’t eat it. But it will be worth the wait, I promise!

    Color in a blue line across the iced cookie with an edible marker.

    Now make red stripes up and down the cookie on top of the icing with a red edible marker.

    Add some white sprinkles to the cookie by using a toothpick dipped in cookie icing.

    Use cookie icing to glue on white chocolate chip ears and a red star sprinkle for the nose.

    Make dots in the middle of the white confetti sprinkles with the black edible marker and put them on the cookie with icing.

    Draw on a cute mouth and whiskers.

    Happy 4th of July!
