Halloween bat cookies

800 gr of flour
240 gr of lard
320 gr of white sugar
100 gr cocoa powder
4 yolk and 2 whole egg 
1 tsp of vanilla ore one vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 grated lemon
2 tsp quality rum

I put the flower on the work place, made a hole in the center where I put immediatelly all ingredients. Leave the lard on room temperature so will be tender, easier to made the dought with hands. I put it into the fridge for one hour.
I used the bat wilton cookie cutter. With the pumpkin one I cut out the bat wings like in the photo down.

I baked them 8 minutes on 180°C in the pre-heated oven. Cool them and then decorate with icing.

The recipe I used is:
4 albumens
4 tsp of lemon
800 gr of sugar powder

Mix albumens with some sugar powder untill you add all. Mix for 10 minutes then add the lemon juice. Regulate the density with some other sugar powder. The royal icing is ready for youse when you take up the mixer and the icing "stay up".

Take out 2 spoons of white for the eyes. Then I put less black color in all icing for a gray color. 1/3 leave gray. In 2/3 put more black for the black icing.

Dorn is how I decorate in parts. 
You could decorate every step after about 20-30 minutes, when the icing made a crust on the surface od the cookies.
