  6. While they're cooling, count out enough cinnamon candies to put two eyes and a nose on each cat.
  7. Carefully flatten between the front and back of two spoons and set aside.
  8. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes and then press in eyes and nose.
  9. Transfer to wire rack to continue cooling.
  10. Dribble jam here and there on each cookie for blood.

  13. Why not even sever a head or two?.
