Owl Cookies

These fun fall cookies are super easy to make.

  1. Start by mixing up two batches of sugar cookie dough. Add 1/4 cup of maple syrup to one batch, and 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to the other.

  2. Roll the chocolate dough out, into roughly a rectangular shape.

  3. Form the maple dough into a thick play dough type rope, the same length as the rectangle of chocolate dough.

  4. Place the maple dough on top of the chocolate, and wrap the chocolate dough around the maple.

  5. Wrap the dough in wax paper, and refrigerate it for a few hours.

  6. Slice the chilled dough into 1/4 inch thick slices.

  7. Place the cookies by twos, overlapping them slightly, onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.

  8. Press M&M's into the middle of the cookies for eyes.

  9. Press a cashew into the overlap of the cookies for a beak.

  10. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  11. Allow to cool slightly, before removing from the pan with a wide spatula.

  12. Enjoy!

It's great to be a homeschooler - especially on the first day of fall.

These look and sound delicous. We will have to give them a try. said...

These are great! And I love that when mom says "you get ONE cookie," you're really getting two. =) I'll be linking.

Alright, I'm going to try this tomorrow and if they turn out looking at all appealing (and I'm not promising anything) I'll link back and let you see! ;)
