• Hi Susan: I thought I left a comment and it disappeared! Was just trying to say how I admire your creativity. Cheers!

    • Aw thank you Doreen. BTW, I know you would love the chocolate Halloween cats. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    As always they look delicious and fun. You must make something like these the next time I visit. Oh wait… don’t make them, unless of course you don’t mind not getting any to eat for yourself. LOL

    • Yep, we need to add these to our every growing list. I do know you’d love these Cheryl. 🙂

  • Jacqueline Gum

    Adorable and so fun to make! You have the coolest stuff Susan! I want to move in….

    • Come on over Jacquie. There is room for another fun and creative person. 😀

  • The highlight for me is the eyes on the chocolate cats.

  • Well Susan, I’ll be turning this recipe over to my daughter in law too. They are adorable.

    • Cool Lenie, They are so much fun to make, you should give them a try too. 🙂

  • Hello Susan,
    It is always nice to see how you come up with a fun and pretty look with cooking recipes.
    I think I will never eat these cookies after making but keep them as decoration. How much cookies can be made with this mentioned quantity with almost same size.

    • Hi Andleeb, LOL… my neighbor had little trouble eating them… LOL. I think it because she know there will more goodies to come. That’s a good question. A full batch of cookie dough makes 36 to 40 2 1/2 inch pumpkin cookies or 18 to 20 4 1/2 inch large chocolate cats. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Jason Butler

    Those cookies look very good.

  • Cookies that look like pumpkins… how cute and yummy at the same time. Orange is also one of my favorite colors.

    • They just plain fun to make Jeri. I do love the orange color of the fondant. It took a bit of adjusting to get the color just right, but it was worth the effort. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    Sugar cookies are evil. They are addictive and grab a hold of your taste buds and never let them go.

    • Yep, these butter cookies are hard to resist Jon. I do love how flexible they are in making different shapes too. 🙂

  • Woo they look nice

    • They are Jo-Anne. I know your grandkids would be ecstatic if you made these for them. 😀

  • Pat Ruppel

    Love this, Susan. You make it look so easy. I never heard of using fondant for icing. Sure make them come out much nicer than the old way of spreading on the icing. 🙂

    • Fondant is fantastic stuff Pat, especially when decorating cookies. I still use the royal icing every now and then but fondant hands down is a sure fire way to make them look extra special. 🙂

      • Pat Ruppel

        I can see that, Susan. What a great find. They look so appetizing and pretty. 🙂

        • Give them a try. 🙂

          • Pat Ruppel

            Just may have to — thanks Susan.

  • Catarina Alexon

    What a wonderful, and I’m sure delicious, idea, Susan. You really should set up a company and start selling your cookies online. If you promote it the right way it will be a huge success. Start off selling them in the US.

    • LOL, that would be fun business for sure Catarina. I am giving it some thought. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    Yummy. I love the way you have presented them, both on the plate and in the boxes. What an awesome Halloween gift.

    • My new neighbor LOVED them and so did everyone else they got the ton of leftovers, especially the (Big) kids Debra. 😀

  • Angela Brower-Hobbs

    Fun, Fun, Fun! I’m pinning this for later! Thanks Susan!

    • Yep they are all that and oh so good the eat too Angela. Have fun with this recipe.

  • Safariontheblog

    I Love Cookies! Printing the recipe now x

    • Woot, Woot! Enjoy making these guys and make enough to share when you do. 😀

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    I love these quirky cookies and my kids would too! I love how you make everything you do art 🙂

    • They are so fun to make Krystle. You should have fun making your own edible Halloween “Art” with your kids. 🙂

  • Adrienne

    As soon as I saw the picture Susan I was hooked.

    Mom and I were talking about maybe making some cookies for Halloween. We have plenty of neighbors here in our complex that will gladly take some from us so we won’t get stuck eating them all, which I would gladly do of course! LOL!!!

    Love the video, fun fun fun. Thanks for sharing this with us and I’ll be sure to share as well.


    • You will so enjoy making these guys Adrienne. I make stuff all the time and give them away to my neighbors. The really love that I blog about food… LOL.

  • Pamela Chollet

    Again I’m amazed Susan you are the neatest baker I’ve ever seen! I love
    baking cookies, especially this time of year. Freezing the dough is a
    great idea. I’m going to try the chocolate cat cookies this week-end.
    Maybe I’ll make some cat faces with candy corn eyes as well. Thank you

    • Aw, but you haven’t seem my behind the scenes… LOL. This cookie dough is awesome for making ahead and pulling out when the need arise. You’ll love the cookie cats, they are fun and delicious. 🙂

  • DC

    These are so cute and very professional Susan. Not a fan of frosting so I simply end up making oatmeal cookies or chocolate chip cookies.

    • Thanks DC, They were really fun to make. For the record, oatmeal cookies are my favorite. 🙂
