The Cutest Peanut Butter Owl Cookies Ever

I wish soooo badly, that I would have made these for the Owl Baby Shower that I helped design a few years back. I was seeing “owls,” for days after that shower, and have since then, developed a, “love,” for the little guys.

Peanut Butter Owl Cookies

These sweet little cookies were created easily, but look like they came from a bakery.

• There are no fancy cutters

• No cake frosting experience needed

• You won’t even need a pastry bag!

a simple plastic zip lock bag with the corner cut off will do

So how are the small “eyes,” cut out? Use the lid to a sprinkles container, or something similar in shape & size!

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 38 minutes
Servings 6 owls
Calories 393kcal


  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • chocolate chips
  • fudge frosting
  • pastry bag and tip or zip lock bag


  • Mix all cookie ingredients and drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet
  • Bake on 350 for 8 minutes (times may vary, I suggest starting at 8 minutes and cooking an additional 2 minutes at a time until golden brown)
  • NOTE* Cookies may seem soft but will set upon cooling. Do not over bake

Preparing Assembly:

  • Pick your favorite 6 cookies to serve as the base for the owl. The remaining 6 cookies will be used for the eyes.
  • Find a small circle cookie cutter (we used the cap to a sprinkles container)
  • Using the remaining cookies, cut out circles for the eyes, set aside
  • Fill a pastry bag (or a fancy zip-lock bag like we did!) with icing and snip the tip just a tiny bit

To Assemble:

  • Put a dab of icing on the top of each circle (eye) NOTE* you want to use the bottom of the cookie for the eye as the color difference will make them stand out from the body (cookie)
  • Lightly press onto the body (cookie)
  • Put a small dab of icing on the chocolate chips to create the inner eye and beak
  • For the wings, hold the bag upright straight and squeeze a dab onto the side pulling up quickly. This will create a feathery pattern
  • Continue this on each side until you are happy with the wings
  • Make 3 lines at the bottom of each cookie for each talon/foot
  • Let dry for at least 2 hours so the icing sets
