An oatmeal refrigerator cookie recipe proved "purrfect" for cat cookies. Half of the dough is chocolate, which frames the playful faces. It was a game of cat and mouse to see what dessert plate would be emptied first!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2013

While these are incredibly cute, they were dry! We did not like them at all. They were not sweet and didnt have a lot of taste. I think some brown sugar should be added to the recipe.
