Halloween Bat Cookies

Here there is one more recipe of homemade cookies for Halloween with the image of a bat. Vanilla and cinnamon give the pastry a special flavour to be incredibly delicious. Shortbread cookies are tender and crispy, so not only children but also adults will like it for sure. If you want you can decorate them with melted black chocolate or multicoloured protein icing. This way I got 16 cookies about 4,5 cm in diameter.
