Chicken Poop Cookies for Halloween October 10, 2014
Not long ago, I posted a recipe for Chicken Poop Dog Treats. In preparation for Halloween, and in the tradition of gross-looking Halloween food like Lady’s Finger cookies, Meat Heads, Monster Mouths and so on, I thought I’d share a recipe for Chicken Poop Cookies (for people). Chickens aren’t the only ones that enjoy treats at our house!
Don’t these look tasty?
Chicken Poop Cookies
- 1/2 c butter
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 c peanut butter
- 1-1/2 c flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 c rolled oats (I used a combination of spent grain and oats)
Preheat oven to 400. Cream the butter and sugar, then add the egg. Beat until light and creamy, then beat in the vanilla and peanut butter, again until creamy.
Beat in flour, baking soda and salt, then fold in oats (or spent grains). Refrigerate for 2 hours or so, until dough is chilled enough to hold its shape. Pipe coiled poop shapes onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake about 12 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken poop cookies). Let cool on cookie sheet for two minutes, then transfer to cooling rack to finish.
Delicious Urate Glaze (ugh) for Chicken Poop Cookies
The chicken poop cookies are not overly sweet, because a glaze goes on the outside to make them look more disgusting–I mean, more realistic. The glaze sweetens them up nicely.
- Powdered sugar
While the chicken poop cookies are cooling, mix about 1/4 c powdered sugar with a dribble of vanilla and a few drops of cream, until you get a slightly goopy consistency. Dip the cookies at one end of the coil into the glaze, then dip again into a little dry powdered sugar. Set back on rack to dry. Enjoy! (Just close your eyes.)
Chicken poop cookies will be great treat for the Halloween table–or for a Halloween trick on your family members. (Hold up a chicken poop cookie, and say, “I’ve always wondered what these taste like, haven’t you?” BITE!)
Do you plan to trick or treat your family with these chicken poop cookies?
