Total Time
1 h 45 m


2 cups
all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
500 mL
1 tsp
baking powder
5 mL
½ cup
unsalted butter, room temperature
125 mL
1 cup
250 mL
1 tbsp
15 mL
1 tsp
vanilla extract
5 mL
4 oz
dark chocolate, finely chopped
125 g
silver dragees


Step 1

In bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. Set aside. In large bowl, with electric hand-mixer, beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg until blended. Beat in milk and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture -- switching to wooden spoon as required -- until fully incorporated. Shape into 2 disks; wrap each in plastic wrap. Chill at least 1 hr. or overnight.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Position racks in top and bottom third of oven. On lightly floured surface, roll dough to ¼-in. (5-mm) thickness. Cut out 12 bats with 3.5-in. (9-cm) wide bat-shaped cookie-cutter. Place cut-outs on parchment-lined baking sheet. Re-roll scraps to make 6 more bats. Repeat with remaining disk of dough. Make 36 bat cut-outs total.

Step 3

Bake, rotating trays once, 10 to 12 min., until cookies are lightly golden around edges. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4

In microwaveable bowl, melt chocolate in microwave on HIGH, 1 min. at a time, stirring. Cool slightly. Scrape into small re-sealable plastic bag; snip off small corner. Pipe chocolate around edges of each cookie. Pipe 2 dots for bat’s eyes; place silver dragee on each chocolate dot for eyes. Let stand until chocolate sets.


Use a variety of Halloween cookie-cutters. Hold a decorating party to celebrate the spooky holiday.
