These Owl Cookies are so cute! My mother made these cookies for my twin sister and me to take to school for our 7th birthday; that was more than fifty years ago! The recipe was from a Pillsbury Bake-Off cookbook my mother had. I’ve since made these cookies for my own children, now grown, and still bake a batch for my Thanksgiving cookie tray. Well worth the extra effort!
These cookies have been a family favorite for years, I found this recipe in a very old black and white Country Cookie Cookbook. Adding sliced Hershey’s kisses to the chocolate chip eyes is a creative touch. Be sure your dough isn’t too dry before forming the shapes so they do not separate when baking. They do take time, but are always a big hit.
So adorable! I just had to make these. Delicious combination of flavors.
These were fun and creative to put together. I do favor drop cookies bc of how fast they are to put together. These are time consuming but they taste great and are really festive.
