"Cookie Cat! He's a pet for your tummy.
Cookie Cat! He's super-duper yummy!"
"Oh sweet Cookie Cat, with your crunchy cookie outside, and your icy, creamy inside, you're too good for this world."
—Steven, "Gem Glow", "Steven Universe", S.1, Ep.1
Note: You'll notice in the image to the right, taken from Steven's cookie cat song sequence, that there are vanilla cookie cats! In the recipe below simply use yellow cake mix instead of chocolate & use only vanilla ice cream for the filling.
Alternate Filling: Don't want to deal with melty ice cream? Use marshmallows instead! Place 1/2 a large white marshmallow & 1/2 a large pink marshmallow, cut sides down, on one cookie bottom & zap in the microwave for 15 seconds. Place the top cookie on & gently squish down so the marshmallows spread out to the edges. This variation is especially great for little "Steven" lovers, like Smalls.
Classic Vanilla Ice Cream
Strawberry Ice Cream (pink, without little bits)
1/2 of a 15.25 oz. Box of Chocolate Cake Mix (~1 1/2 cups cake mix)
1 Large Egg
1/4 Cup Shortening OR Room Temperature Butter
1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Water
Cat Head Cookie Cutter (mine's an inexpensive one from Ebay)
Small Circle Cutter (a little larger than a straw opening)
1. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a tray with sides. Sit the containers of ice cream out long enough to be spreadable but not so long that they get too melty. Work quickly! Spread a strip of vanilla ice cream about a 1/2" thick & half as wide as your cat head cookie cutter. Next, spread an equal-sized strip of strawberry ice cream right next to (touching) the vanilla. Repeat this pattern again so you have vanilla, strawberry, vanilla, strawberry. Now cover the tray with plastic wrap & place it in the freezer overnight.
