These cute critters will delight children of all ages -- try inviting the kids into the kitchen to lend a helping hand during baking.This recipe was prepared on "The Martha Stewart Show" and appears on the Martha Stewart Makes Cookies App for iPad.





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.

Cook's Notes

Cookies can be stored in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

    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."
