Directions

Variations

The recipe above is for white mice cookies; for chocolate mice, in step 1 reduce flour to two and a half cups, and add half a cup of unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder. Increase sugar to 1 cup. Proceed with the recipe, forming mice, then bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are firm and tips of almond ears are golden brown, about 18 minutes. Use 3 ounces of white chocolate, melted and kept slightly warm, to pipe small eyes and a nose onto the face of each chocolate mouse.

    I made these last year and everyone loved them. They were too cute to eat! I couldn't find the black licorice ropes and just cut regular size down to the size I wanted. However, this year I am going to use the red "Pull and Peel" licorice. More people prefer the red to black anyway!

    Your website shows what looks like a "chocolate" mouse. Do you add chocolate to the dough? You also had a tray on the televised segment showing the same chocolate mouse. How do you adapt the recipe?

    one week is hardly enough time to make and ship i wanted to ask what could make them keep 2 weeks longer. they don't have any different ingredients than regular and they normally last 1 few weeks in a can.

    Enjoyed making these, they were so cute. However, directions slightly confusing. "Reduce speed to low, and add one-third flour mixture, beating just until blended." What do you do with the other 2/3 flour. Perhaps rewrite to say Reduce speed to low, and add flour mixture one-third at a time, beating until just blended."
