This weekend we made biscuits and got out our pretty panda cookie cutters (you can find them all over the net).
We don’t use them often because let’s face it, it’s loooooooooong to make those little two-tone pandas. So I came up with some different ways to use them (you may have seen them on Instagram by the way) so I can munch on them more often.
- 425 g of flour
- 225 g of softened butter
- 1 egg
- 170 g of icing sugar
Mix the softened butter and icing sugar.
Add the egg.
Add flour and mix. Finish by hand, if using a food processor, to form nice balls. If still sticky, add more flour.
From the cookie cutter set, select the standing panda and the four faces.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of 3 to 5 mm.
Cut out the panda shapes.
Print the faces without pressing too hard or the paste will get stuck in the holes.
Cut out small arms with a sharp knife.
Place an almond (or smarties or something else flat) and fold the arms.
Bake at 180° C. The time depends on the thickness. I would say 7 to 10 minutes.
Let cool before tasting.
And as a bonus the making-of of the picture on the front page of the article. Here is how I made the little panda stand 😉
I hope you like it. If you make any, please feel free to share your creations. Tag me #doitwithmrlapin
