Owl Cookies

Yields:2-3 Dozen Cookies

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Steps:In medium bowl mix the first three ingrediants. In large bowl cream together all other ingrediants. Blend flour mixture into butter/sugar mixture. Divide dough into two equal parts. To one part, add enough unsweetened cocoa to make dough dark brown. Divide white dough into two equal parts and roll each intoa log. Divide brown dough into two equal parts and roll out. Place white dough logs on rolled out brown dough and wrap brown dough around white log. Cover wrapped logs and chill overnight.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove one cookie log from refrigerator and slice into two halves. Put one half back in refrigerator. Slice other half into 6-8 equal slices. Place each slice onto lightly greased cookie sheet and pinch two ears at top of each slice. Repeat with rest of logs.

Use Chocolate chps or raisins for eyes and halved pecans for noses. Bake for 10 minutes until dough is slightly browned. Move from baking sheets to racks to cool.
