Cute Oatmeal Kitty Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup quick-cooking oats

2 ounces unsweetened chocolate,

melted and cooled

Semisweet chocolate chips

Red-hot candies

Shoestring black licorice, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces


In a large bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed

mixture and mix well. Stir in oats. Divide dough in half. Add melted chocolate

to one portion.

Shape the plain dough into an 8-in. roll. Roll chocolate dough between waxed

paper into an 8-in. square. Place plain dough at one end of square; roll up.

Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for at least 3 hours or over night.

Unwrap dough; cut into 1/4 in. slices. Place 2 i. apart on ungreased baking sheets.

To form ears, pinch two triangles on the top of each cookie.

Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately place two

chocolate chips for eyes, a red-hot for the nose and six pieces of licorice on each

for whiskers. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 3 dozen.
