I saw this idea for Werewolf Paw cookies on Food.com and it was so clever! You can make these super simple by using your favourite single or sandwich cookie. Just make the hair and claws-too easy!

An Original Recipe by Lorraine Elliott
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes
- 18 Cookies (I made Brookies using a Greens Brookie Mix I was sent)
- 250g/8.8ozs. butter, softened
- 125g/4ozs. caster sugar
- 75ml/2.5flozs. room temperature water
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 5 Cashews per "paw"
Step 1 - Beat the butter and sugar on low speed for 3 minutes. Mix the water and cocoa powder and then add to the butter mixture and beat for 7 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is silky in texture. It's important to not have any lumps in your icing.
Step 2 -Take a grass tip and fit it to a coupler (a coupler lets you use different decorating tips with the same bag of icing). At times you can get away with not using a coupler but I find that with the grass tip, because it is so fine, it gets clogged easily and you want to remove it and rinse it out and then replace it a few times and a coupler allows you to do this.
Step 3 -Fill the bag with frosting and pipe "hair" across the cookies making sure to add enough icing at one end so that you can affix the cashews to one end.
