What you need to make your ladybug valentine cookies:
- 400 g FunCakes Mix for Double Choco Chip Cookies
- 250 g FunCakes Deco Melts Red
- FunCakes Mini Hearts Pink/White/Red
- FunCakes Sugar Decorations Eyes
- 1 egg (approx. 50 g)
- 80 g unslated butter
- 8 ml water
- Wilton Parchment Paper
- Cling Film
Prepare 400 g FunCakes Mix for Double Choco Chip Cookies according to instructions on the package. Form the dough into a long sausage with a diameter of about 4-5 cm and roll it firmly in the cling film. Let the dough stiffen in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 175°C (convection oven 150°C).
Cut slices of about 1 ½ to 2 cm and place them on the parchment paper. Keep enough space between them because the cookies will expand, if necessary bake several portions. Bake the cookies in about 16-20 done, when they come out of the oven they still feel soft. Let them cool down on the counter.
Heat 250 g FunCakes Deco Melts Red according to instructions on the package. Dip the cookies up to 2/3 in the red Deco Melts, place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and immediately sprinkle with the FunCakes Mini Hearts Pink/White/Red. Place the plate in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes so the Deco Melts can set and get a nice sheen. Stick the eyes on the cookies with some remaining Deco Melts.
