Hedgehog Cookies Recipe

My source of inspi­ra­tion was this French recipe, but I changed a few things to make it eas­i­er to make in the US.

Note: you will need a pas­try brush for this recipe.

Instruc­tions
  1. Mix all the ingre­di­ents for the cook­ie dough. You can mix the old fash­ioned way using the tip of your fin­gers, or go for the fast route and use a stand up mix­er. Gath­er the dough in a ball and wrap it with plas­tic wrap. Let it sit at room tem­per­a­ture for 30 min­utes.

  2. Pre­heat oven to 350 degrees Fahren­heit.
  3. Place parch­ment paper on a bak­ing tray. With the cook­ie dough, make hedge­hog shapes, i.e. shapes that look like pears or ice cream cones. See pic­ture. You should have enough dough to make 18 hedge­hog bod­ies.

  4. Bake the cook­ies for 25 min­utes. Set aside and let the cook­ies cool down.
  5. Once the cook­ies are no longer warm, pro­ceed to dec­o­rate them. First, melt the choco­late. The easy way to melt the choco­late is to put it in the microwave for about 1 minute with a table­spoon of water.

  6. With a pas­try brush, apply the warm melt­ed choco­late on the round part of the hedge­hog bod­ies. See pic­ture. Sprin­kle with choco­late sprin­kles. The sprin­kles will stick on the warm choco­late.

  7. Take your black dec­o­rat­ing gel to make the eyes of the hedge­hog. Place a lit­tle bit of the gel on the tip of the hedge­hog muz­zle to stick a pearl and make the nose. See pic­ture.
