For today, I'll be sharing the recipe for these Baymax cookies. I know I promised to update about watermelon bread piggies before this and some of you are asking me where that recipe is. Sorry, I was actually drafting up that post a couple of weeks back, but I misplaced some of the measurements I took down for that recipe, so I will have to make that again before I can share.
These Baymax cookies were made with my usual german cookies recipe. These cookies have a crumbly texture that just melts in your mouth. This recipe only requires a few ingredients, is very easy to make, and it's very versatile, as you can mould the dough into almost any characters you fancy.
I used one to decorate my boy's ice-cream, just for fun, lol.
I used charcoal powder to colour the dough black, but if you can't get hold of it, please replace with either dark cocoa powder or black food colouring.
BAYMAX GERMAN COOKIE RECIPE
50g icing sugar, sifted
125g potato starch
80g cake flour
1/2 tsp charcoal powder
- Beat butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy.
- Sift in potato starch and flour, mix till a soft dough is formed.
- Scoop out around 3 tbsp of the dough and mix with charcoal powder. Mix till it turns black. Wrap both the black dough and the white dough separately with cling wrap and refrigerate for half an hour.
- Take out the white dough, mould into 2 balls, 1 for the head and 1 for the body(mould the body slightly bigger than the head) and join them together. I measured the dough for this so that it's more consistent, but you can choose not to do so if you prefer. For your reference, I measured 8g for the body and 6g for the head.
- Mould out Baymax's arms and legs and join them to the body. I did not weigh the dough for the limbs.
- Take the black dough and roll into two small circles for Baymax's eyes. Roll out a thin strip for Baymax's mouth. Alternatively, you can also add water a few drops at a time to the black dough, till you get a thick paste, that you can fill in a pipping bag and pipe on the details.
- Add on heart shaped sprinklers.
- Bake cookies at 130 degrees celcius for around 25 minutes. To prevent cracking, please place at the middle to low rack and insert an empty tray above it.
