Yes I'm guilty. I ate them.

Don't look at me like that.

They are yummy. They are crunchy.

They are holy darn dang cute too. Them little darlings.

Ring o ring o rosies..............
Pocketful of doggies
a woof woof a woof woof
They all got chomped down

So cute I could bite them.

And so I did.

Sonia made me do this. Sonia the Nasi Lemak Lover.

I was hesitant at first but she assured me that they were good. She said "....try! try!...never try never know!"

So now I know. I know I can eat cute little doggies no matter how imploringly they looked at me.

Wake up little doggies. Time for dinner........... dinner

Flavoured with Horlicks, a popular malt drink taken as a hot beverage in the UK and Asia, these doggies have apparently travelled around a number of blogs and enchanted many.

I'm honoured to have them grace mine.

Thank you doggies.

Eenie, Meennie and Mo................

I woof ya...........

The recipe.............

250 gm butter
30 gm castor sugar
1 egg yolk

250gm cake flour (Iused plain/all purpose)
40 gm cornflour
120 gm Horlicks
40 gm milk powder (I omitted this and made it up with horlicks instead)

Koko Krunch for the ears
Chocolate rice for the eyes
Chocolate chip for the noses

Preheat oven at 170 C

Sift flour and mix in the cornflour, horlicks and milk powder if you're using it. Stir to combine evenly.

Cream butter and sugar together until creamy. Add egg yolk and continue beating until the mixture is light and flufy.

Fold in the dry ingredients until you get a firm dough.

Pinch about 10m grams of dough and roll them into balls. Decorate into a cute doggie face.

Bake for about 10 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight tin.

Enjoy them.

How much is that doggie in the bottle?.................
The one with no waggely tail
How much is that doggie in the bottle?
I do hope that he is for sale......

These are so cute! :) I love the use of Koko Crunch for the ears... I haven't had them in years! And the cute chocolate sprinkle eyes. Love it! :)

OWH!! Too cute. Maybe I should give my cats these and they will be gleeful and smile smugly at the doggie who always barks at them from across the street.. hehe

Oh I might just make a batch and finish them off myself :P

Faida said...

Aunty, see what happen whe you posted something cute... you got bunch of comments. Let me guess.. they all must be ladies. Never serve ladies with adorable cookies, as they wont notice your deco talent, and the cookie might ended-up in their handbags, untouched.LOL! Great talent you have.

Zurin said...

Helene, yes they are cute :)) I enjoyed making them.

Breadetbutter, I seldom buy koko krunch myself so i had to buy a small packet just for this. :) was fun.

Percicilan, heh was thinking the same for my cat too !:))

Faida, tq :))

Sophie, yes they are cute :))

Alessia (Ale) said...

Bellissimo il tuo blog, e questi biscotti... ;)

Jess said...

Hi Zu, I have just made these cookies but they all cracked and made my doggies look really pathetic... :-( I dunno what I have done wrong (I halved the recipe and had 16, was it too big?)

Zurin said...

I can't imagine what Could have gone wrong Jess. Perhaps youre right. Maybe if you made them smaller they will cook quicker and will not crack. I got this recipe from Sonia and it was ok. I hope youre nt discouraged. Do try again and let me know how it turns out.

Sorry i took so long to reply Jess. Been pretty caught up lately ;)
