What You Need

cups  flour
tsp.  CALUMET Baking Powder
tsp.  salt
cup  butter or margarine, softened
cups  granulated sugar
tsp.  vanilla
pkg.  (4 oz.) BAKER'S Unsweetened Chocolate, melted
tubes  (0.68 oz. each) decorating gel, any color

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

MIX flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Add chocolate; mix well. Divide dough in half; wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours.

PLACE half the dough on lightly floured surface; roll into 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into bat and cat shapes with 3-inch cookie cutters, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.

BAKE 10 to 12 min. or until firm around the edges. Cool on baking sheets 2 min.; transfer to wire racks. Cool completely. Decorate with gel.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Omit decorating gel. Let the kids decorate the unbaked cookies with colored sugar, multi-colored and chocolate sprinkles, chopped PLANTERS Nuts and/or seasonal candies before baking as directed.
How to Prevent Tough Cut-Out Cookies
To prevent tough cookies, roll out cut-out cookie dough scraps only once. Collect all the scraps, shape into ball and refrigerate until firm. Roll them out together for a final sheet of cookies; discard any remaining scraps.
