More About This Recipe
  • For your family time or holiday party, these cats will steal the show.

    I was trying to get some ideas for some cute cookies for a Hanukkah celebration and came across these adorable cats all dressed up for the holiday. I totally fell in love with them and thought they were the cutest things ever.

    Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix is dairy kosher and makes these cookies easy to prep!

    Roll out the dough and cut out circle shapes with your cookie cutter. If you have a star cookie cutter handy, you can cut out small triangles for the ears using that. If not, just cut out some small triangles with a knife.

    Put two of the triangles on top of the circle so they bake together to make a kitty head.

    Let the cookies cool completely before decorating. Then spread the top of the cat with white frosting.

    Now sprinkle blue sugar on top for the Yamaka.

    Put candy eyes on the cookie with frosting.

    Now draw in a cute little cat face with the black edible marker. Adorable!

    Add a Star of David sugar décor using a dab of frosting for the “glue.” (If you have a hard time finding those decors, use a white Necco™ wafer candy and draw a blue Star of David on it with an edible marker instead!)

    A fun and sweet spin on sugar cookies for your Hanukkah celebration!
