Cute Piggy German Cookies for CNY
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 45 mins - 1 hour + (depending on how skilled you are)
Cooking time: 18 minutes (per batch)
Makes about 75

250g butter, softened at room temperature
80g icing sugar, sifted
250g potato starch/flour, sifted
160g plain flour, sifted

For the pig features
Black sesame (for eyes)
Pink food colouring

1. Preheat oven to 170°C (no fan). Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

2. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the potato starch and plain flour, and mix to form a soft dough. If it feels sticky, add another 1 to 2 tablespoon of potato flour. You should be able to pinch some off with your fingers and roll into a ball easily.

4. Set aside 80g of dough and add about 3 drops of pink food colouring and mix well. This is for the snout and ears.

5. Roll the normal dough into a small ball, and shape into an oval.  Pinch some of the pink dough and shape into a small oval for the snout. Using the toothpick, poke two holes for the snout.

6. Shape two small triangles from the pink dough for the ears. Place ears on the side of the head.

7. Place two black sesame between the ears, above the snout for the eyes. 

8. Bake in preheated oven for 18 mins. Allow to cool on baking tray and store in an air tight container once cooled.

Note: If you do not wish to use all the above dough to make piggy German Cookies, you can use them to make the normal German cookies (see instructions here). This is a pink marbled version... kinda pretty, isn't it? (use 75% normal dough, 25% pink dough and roll into balls)
