Make these adorably goofy Bat, Cat and Witch cookies for your Halloween party or to delight your favorite Trick-or-Treaters.

Watch the video to see how easy it is or visit the ZP website for more info.  You can also download a PDF with instructions and the recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cream Cheese Cookie Dip.

A few things to remember:

•  Always use a cookie dough recipe that was designed for molded cookies, or they might flatten out in the oven when baked and will lose the designs.  You can find recipes on the ZP website and at Anne L. Watson’s Molded Cookie site.

 •  Oil your mold very sparingly, too much oil may encourage the dough to stick.  You’ll want a very soft sheen on the face of the mold.  If it’s shiny, wipe away the excess oil with a lint free towel.  You only need to oil your mold once – not before each cookie.

 •  Thoroughly dust your dough with flour – But be sure that it looks ‘frosted’ – not heavily floured.

How to make Cute Dalamatian Puppy Cookies – Recipe

Dalmatian Puppy Cookies

These seem to be everyone’s favorite yummy thing made from the Puppy mold.
The recipe is also on the back of the Puppy Mold’s box.

DALMATIAN PUPPY COOKIES

No-spread cookie dough:

  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups superfine sugar (not powdered)
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. fine grain (table) salt
  • Red gel food coloring (optional)

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well.

Mix dry ingredients together and add gradually to egg mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Lightly dust Puppy Mold with flour. For one big, round cookie, roll cookie dough into a 9” circle, then press into the mold.

For individual Puppy Cookies, dust mold with flour and press dough into the puppy shape of the mold.

For best detail, bake right in the mold, but cookies can also be baked on a cookie sheet. Bake 7-12 minutes, depending on thickness, until edges are golden brown.

To make a Dalmatian Puppy Cookie: Paint melted chocolate directly into the mold for eyes, nose and spots. For a pink tongue, add a tiny bit of red gel food coloring (use a toothpick) to a small amount of dough, blend and press into the mold.  Then gently press cookie dough into just the puppy shape of the mold.   Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness.  Melted chocolate can also be painted on the cookie after baking, using a small artist’s brush.

Recipe adapted from: Capitts at BakeSpace


Next, I’d like to try making border collie puppy cookies using a little cocoa in half the cookie dough…

Go Red for Women

I’m very pleased to announce that ZANDA PANDA Specialty Bakeware will be donating a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the Kaleidoscope Heart cake/cookie/crafts mold to the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement.

I’m on the lookout for ‘heart-healthy’ cake recipes for the website. If you have a favorite that’s easy, healthy and yummy (Whole grains, low, fat, etc.), send it over!

I asked the folks at ChowHound for recipes and am getting a nice response. Check out their recipes on the Chowhound ‘Home Cooking’ board.
