Bat Shaped Cookies Halloween recipe

Bat Shaped Cookies

When the cookies are homemade, you can be sure that not even a single one would be left uneaten.  Well, that’s what happens in our house anyway!

  • 1½ cups White Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup Brandy
  • 1/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Lard
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Aniseed
  • 6 cups All-purpose Flour
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl, till they blend well. Set it aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream sugar (after putting ¼ cup aside) and lard, until they form a smooth mixture.
  • Mix in the aniseed in the smooth sugar-lard mixture and beat it until it becomes fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, to the sugar-lard mixture, one at a time.
  • Add sifted ingredients and brandy to the bowl and stir them until they are blended well, forming a dough.
  • Put some flour on the surface and then roll the dough to 1/2 or 1/4 inch thickness and cut it in the shape of bats, using cookie cutters or a knife.
  • Preheat the oven to 350oF or 175deg C.
  • Grease the baking sheets and put cookies on them.
  • Mix together cinnamon and rest of the sugar in a cup and sprinkle it over the cookies.
  • Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes, till they become light brown at the bottom side.
  • Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
Nothing better than eating a crunchy bat on Halloween, especially when it tastes so good!
