Bat Cookies

Every Halloween, when my kids were in college, I would them my traditional bat cookies along with a card. Bat cookies are sugar cookies in the shape of bats with chocolate icing piped around the edges to outline the bat. This year the bat cookies must make the journey to my daughter in Germany. I'm not sure that the traditional bat cookies will be able to survive the trip abroad so I turned to Pastry Chef Francois Payard for inspiration. Msr. Payard makes a chocolate version of rice krispy treats. Instead of rolling them into balls as he suggests I'm going to cut them in the shape of bats using a cookie cutter. Hopefully this will work.
