Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

These wise old owl cookies are decorated before baking.
Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough into thirds. Add cocoa to one-third of dough; mix well. Divide chocolate dough in half. Roll each half into 10-inch log; set aside.
Roll out each remaining white dough amount into a 10x4-inch rectangle. Place 1 chocolate log onto each white dough rectangle. Roll white dough completely around chocolate log, leaving ends uncovered. Wrap dough logs in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Create owls by placing 2 slices onto ungreased cookie sheet, side-by-side with edges touching. Using fingers, pinch up dough to form ear at top of each circle. Place 1 baking chip in center of each chocolate section for eyes. Press 1 cashew into bottom center of each cookie to create beak. Repeat with remaining dough slices.
Bake 9-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes; remove to cooling rack.

I made this recipe and it turned out so cute! I also used almonds and cheerios for noses and also white chocolate chips for eyes. It was so much much and such a hit!
