Muddy puddle biscuitsPosted on Mar 11, 2015
If you like me have a little person in your life you will be well versed in all things Peppa Pig!!
One rainy afternoon I decided to do a simple bake with my 2 year old Daughter and at her request we made these Muddy puddle biscuits! They are super simple to make so perfect for little bakers. They taste delicious and keep well for up to a week (if you can keep little hands away from the biscuit tin!)
175g Softened butter
85g Caster sugar
200g Plain flour
3 tbsp Coco powder
4 tbsp Icing sugar
2 tbsp Coco powder
Enough water to make a glossy runny icing
Method – Oven temp 180C/160C fan/gas 4
Cream the butter and sugar together. Sift in the flour and coco powder until a dough forms (add a little milk if required) Wrap the dough ball in some cling-film and chill for 30 mins.
Once chilled roll out the dough and stamp out some rounds using a cookie cutter. Then get your little helper to pinch the sides of the rounds to make random ‘puddle’ shapes.
Bake on a lined baking tray for 10-12 mins. Cool on a cooling rack then cover with the chocolate icing to make the Muddy puddle SPLATS!
If you want to you can make some little red boots (as shown) using some red fondant. Roll two little balls then pinch into boot shapes, use a skewer to make the holes at the top of the boots.
These are sure to be a hit with Peppa fans young and old
