Vampire Bat Sugar Cookies

It’s easy to go to the store and pick up pre-made cookies. I know, we’ve all been there. You’re tired, stressed, the kids are driving you bonkers, and the idea of actually making anything more than your own bed (and even that, sometimes) seems completely masochistic and insane. But wait – don’t give in to that kind of thinking. These Vampire Bat Sugar Cookies are made completely from scratch and so worth the effort. Think about it…you’re already stressed, exhausted, you’ve had a glob of pudding in your hair for two days now…wouldn’t it be nice to make something that turns out amazing? Think of how great you’re going to feel watching these come together. Think about how great your family and friends are going to feel when you give them something you made entirely from scratch. I know it’s a lot. I know you think you don’t have it in you right now, but do it. You’ll feel better for the work you put in.
