    This is a delightfully simple cookie recipe. I didn't have the cat paw cookie cutter so I just used other Halloween cookie cutters I had. I also added a bit of nutmeg to give it more of a fall flavor. The best part is that the cookie will turn your tongue black after you eat it!

    What a great tip about making cookie cutters from the foil box blade - that would save having to buy and find a place to store all the seasonal shaped cookie cutters. Also, maybe use needle nose or craft pliers to form the tight bends in the box blade so as not to cut yourself. I used dark chocolate cookie dough and made dinosaur footprints for a BD party using this same idea.

    I make these using the chocolate cookie recipe. That way I only need to add a little coloring. (or none at all) Thanks for the idea of shaping the cutter out of the foil box blade! I've been using a cardboard cutout, and cutting around it with a tiny knife.

    My mother used to improvise cookie cutters in most shapes by fashioning them out of the blades from tin foil boxes... it sounds crude but with practice, anyone can make any shapes they want!!!

    It is a very good recipe but the cat paw cookie cutter is hard to find in stores .You have to either order it online or if you are lucky you can find it in stores.
