Karla's Animal Cookie Recipe

Karla's Animal Cookie Recipe

Karla was a bit distressed when it looked as if the commercial product “Mother’s animal cookies” were about to be discontinued! Fortunately, ‘Mother’s’ decided to keep the brand alive.

Karla wasn’t certain, so we came up with our own recipe… and frankly, it is really yummy! 🙂


3 1/2 cups of bread flour

1 1/2 cups Baker’s sugar

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup butter

1/2 cup water

a splash or two of rye whiskey


powdered sugar, vanilla and butter ( and a little Amarula never hurts)

350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until slightly brown.
