Mikuru’s cookies

Ingredients (15 cookies)

Egg yolk – 1
Sugar – 80g
Butter – 100g
Pastry flour – 180g
Baking chocolate – 15g

* A toothpick or wooden skewer would be convenient to use!

* This is a rough estimate of ingredients, so add more or less depending on the thickness and size of the dough

Let’s get ready to prepare the cookies!

Butter: Bring it to room temp.
* If using a stove, remove it as soon as it starts to melt.
Egg: Separate the egg white and egg yolk
* We won’t be using the egg white, so feel free to consume it
Pastry flour: sift through the flour

Let’s make the cookie dough

1. Mix the room temperature butter with 80g of sugar using a rubber spatula or a whisk
2. Mix until you can no longer see the sugar crystals, then add in the egg yolk and mix well.
3. Put in 180g of the sifted flour and mix gently with the spatula until you cannot see the powder of the flour.
* If you don’t mix well, the dough will lose its crispness. Keep your passionate mixing up!
4. When the dough starts coming together, separate the parts that will be used for the chocolate and plain respectively. In this case, we split 30% chocolate, 70% plain
5. In the for-chocolate dough, add in the baking chocolate powder, and mix until the whole dough becomes the colour of the chocolate.
6. Wrap the two doughs in plastic wrap and put them in the freezer to chill for about 40 minutes.

Let’s get baking!

1. Take out the dough , and stretch out the plain dough with a rolling pin and take out a circular cookie.
2. With a bit of the chocolate dough…
<Choose (1) or (2)>
(1) Add in the dough in the shape of Mikuru’s bangs, eyes, and mouth to make a nice shape.
(2) Roll the dough thin and with a wooden skewer or a knife, draw in Mikuru’s bang, eyes, and mouth.
3. Bake in the oven at 170°C for 15 minutes and you’re done!
*Depending on your oven, you may have to adjust the timing. Keep an eye on your cookies!
