If you don’t have a bat-shaped cookie cutter, use a 3-inch round cutter and cut some of the rounds in half for wings that can be pressed onto either side of a round bat face.


  • 1/4 cup powdered vanilla soy beverage
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbs. powdered vanilla soy beverage (dissolved in 1 Tbs. water)
