Twelve Days of Cookies - Second Day

In 2002, my good friend, Laurie, asked what I might like for Christmas, I said I just wanted handwritten recipes of her family’s favorites.

At the time, James was six and his favorite was Black Cat Cookies. Here’s James recipe, partially in his own handwriting.

By the way, when you are (or in James case, when he was) six years old, it doesn’t matter if you make black cat cookies at Christmas, it just matters that the cookies taste good!

James’ Black Cat Cookies

1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup water
2 eggs
1 package chocolate cake mix
M & M’s

Beat together peanut butter, eggs, and water. Add cake mix. Mix well. Form dough into one inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Pinch out two ears at top of cookie. Add M & M eyes and nose. Press fork into dough to form whiskers. Bake at 375º for 8 – 10 minutes. Makes 4 ½ dozen.
