Bat Cookies for Halloween

Halloween cookies are among my favorite cookies to make. They are fun and colorful and you can really use your imagination to make things that you wouldn’t normally make. Take these bat cookies for example. I have made bat cookies many times but, never girl bats. I don’t know why I didn’t make them years ago but, I am glad I am making them now.

Easy Bat Cookies for Halloween- Girl bats by www.thebearfoootbaker.comYou may look at the girl bats and think they would be hard to make. Well, they aren’t. You just need to talk one step at a time.
First, position your star cookie upside down.
With the black icing, follow the top two points to make the ears.
Then, connect the ears with a half circle to make the head.
Next, outline the body.
Then, make each wing.
Add the inside of the ears and two legs.
See! When you do one step at a time, it is easy!

It is important you use airbrush color instead of regular food gel colors because if you don’t, you might damage your airbrush gun. That would be really sad!

If you don’t have an airbrush gun, don’t worry. These bat cookies are cute even if they aren’t airbrushed.
