    My daughter is doing a project for school for a book she read. She wanted to make mouse cookies and was wondering if anyone knew where to get either a mouse cookie cutter or if anyone knew where I could find an outline to trace. Thanks

    Would a "Mickey" Mouse cookie work? They do sell those cookie cutters! LOL!
    I tried to make mouse cookies with this small mouse cutter and it was really hard! Tail kept ripping...Ears stuck! Pain in the ****
    Anyway if I had to do it all over again I think I would cut a tear drop shap out Bake it and then use black licoris for the tail and wiskers, some fruit wrap cut for ears and frost them!
    good luck!

    Almond Mice

    Recipe By :Nancy {:-)
    Serving Size : 45 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : Cookies Formed

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 cup butter or margarine -- room temperature
    1 cup packed light brown sugar
    1 large egg
    2 teaspoons almond extract
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    peanut halves
    coarsely chopped raisins
    red licorice laces -- cut in 3" pieces

    Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Gradually beat in flour until blended.
    Dough will be stiff. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until well chilled.
    Heat oven to 325 degrees. Have cookie sheets ready.
    Shape rounded tablespoons of dough into 1 1/4" balls. Taper each ball at one end into a teardrop shape. Press one side flat. Place flat sides down 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Press in sides of balls to raise "backs" of mice. (They spread slightly as they bake.)
    Gently push 2 peanut halves in each for ears and 2 pieces of raisins for eyes.
    With a wooden pick, make a 1" deep hole at the tail end.
    Bake 9-12 minutes until bottoms are lightly browned. Remove to rack. Insert licorice tails. Cool completely.
