Halloween Treats - Easy Black Cat Cookies

Introduction: Halloween Treats - Easy Black Cat Cookies

About: I like computers, anime, and other stuff.

This recipe was found in a newspaper around 15 years ago. This year we decided to change the recipe a little because we could not find "red hots" so we used red jelly beans.

We make these cookies every Halloween.

Also sorry about some of the pictures. My good camera's battery died so I had to use my old one.
