Whether your kid is a pint-sized PETA member or a child carnivore, there's no denying these sweet, animal treats. And the only thing better than those cute, red boxes the commercial animal cookies come in is making a batch yourself! So grab an aproned lil buddy and a couple of cookie cutters and get baking!
Cream 1 lb. of butter with 3 and 3/4 cups of sugar. Add five eggs, two tbsp. of vanilla and ten tbsp. of milk. Next, add two tsp. of baking soda to eight and a half cups of flour. Then add the flour to the mixture — a bit at a time — and blend well. Roll on floured board and cut into animal shapes with cutters. Bake at 350°F for ten minutes. Makes about 200 cookies depending on the size of your cutters.
