Sheep biscuits

Sheep biscuits


The sheep biscuits are a very nice recipe prepared with whipped shortcrust pastry , so potentially you can also use the biscuit maker.


  • 150 g of butter
  • 80 g of icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 180 g of flour
  • 40 g of bitter cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence


  1. Whip the slightly softened butter with the sugar, then incorporate the egg first and then also the vanilla, flour and baking powder.
  2. Finally, add the cocoa to 1/4 of the dough (leave the remaining 3/4 white) and mix well.
  3. Put the white pastry in a sac-à-poche and create the sheep’s coat directly on the baking tray (lined with parchment paper), simply creating balls joined together, giving a slightly oval shape, but leaving a space on one side for the little head.
  4. Once the white shortbread is finished, put the cocoa shortbread in another sac-à-poche and create the head and paws.
  5. Bake the biscuits at 180° for about 10/12 minutes then let them cool.
  6. The sheep biscuits are ready, you just have to taste them.
