I couldn't stop thinking of this beautiful little girl who just loves following me around the house when I was in J's apartment last December. Well she is J's little niece, Natalie, half vietnamese and half new zealander.... Guess what... J has just gotten permission from his sister to bring Little Natalie to Singapore.... yippee.. Oops...and I am going to play aunty cum mummy to her when she is here. Well this is not really a tough job since I am, hmm hmm, quite skillful with all my little nephews and nieces already. I am sure it is not a tough job for J either as he is really good with little kids... ha ha..
Last night I've decided to bake something cute for Little Natalie and have ended up with making these cute little horlick puppy cookies. They have different and distinctive characters.. so cute right? I am sure Little Natalie would love them...
The Recipe goes like that: (Taken from HHB's Website)
180g butter, soften at room temperature
80g Horlicks (original flavour)
200g top flour or cake flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder
100g chocolate chips
some chocolate rice
some Koko Krunch
1. Pre-heat oven to 140deg C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
2. Sieve top flour, corn flour and milk powder.
3. Cream butter and Horlicks for about three minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.
4. Put in top flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form dough.
5. Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
6. Insert two pieces of Koko Krunch to form the 'ears', chocolate rice for the "eyes", and a chocolate chip in the centre for the 'nose'.
7. Bake at 140 deg C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.
8. Leave to cool on wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
