Dita's Spiced Mice Cookies

I got this recipe from the lovely Dita Von Teese in her interview with InStyle and couldn't wait to try it out!

First mix up the flour and spices (cardamom, allspice, and cinnamon)

For sugar, Dita uses 1/2 cup granulated plus 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

Mix it all up with the wet ingredients (butter, egg, vanilla)

Roll into little "mice" on the cookie sheet.

Decorate with ears (almonds), eyes (dried currants), and a tail (dried chow mein noodles)

Aren't they adorable?

Here is my army of little spiced mice cookies... yumm!

Enjoy with coffee, tea, or milk. Not only are they cute but they taste so scrumptious, I will definitely be making these fellows again :)
What sorts of treats are you baking up right now?

    if you sprinkle a few extra currants on the plate, it would look like the mice left little "droppings."
