Kitties Remain in Demand, Year after Year
This dough is delicious, for starters. The cookies are a little laborious (rolling, pressing, and shaping each cat face) as I've yet to find an appropriately-sized cutter. However, they are worth the effort and I've been making them since the recipe appeared on cooking.com way back when. I have friends and colleagues request the cookies months in advance, and they even ask me to make Christmas Kitties; they're just adorable and delicious!
