Hedgehog cookies with vanilla dough

Hedgehog cookies with vanilla dough

I have recently become a hedgehog sitter. In our town Lauf an der Pegnitz there is no hedgehog care station. Fortunately, there is the Uschi 🙂who cares with her big heart for small abandoned and sick hedgehogs.

With astonishment I discovered a hedgehog in my garden in spring. Especially in a small garden in the middle of the city you do not expect a wild animal. Since he was still quite small, I asked Uschi if she takes my hedgehog and feeds it up. She kept my little Igeldame really thick and round, so that we could expose her in my garden again.

Since Uschi knew my garden and also knew that I had a lot of space, she asked me in autumn if I would let two hedgehogs hibernate in my garden. You are currently at the weight limit of about 600 grams. So I put the two gentlemen, Igor and Stan Lee, two hedgehog houses with a lot of straw for hedging. The two are actually pulled together, I always thought hedgehogs were loners.

Long story short, I just wanted to say thank you to dear Uschi for all her dedication and in short baked her the popular hedgehog cookies . she was very happy about it🙂

Additional information about the hedgehog cookies:
  1. Please do not make the biscuits too big. I also baked some myself and the first momentum was too big. You always want something special from the cookie plate and at the end you are then fed up with a cookie.
  2. You can also decorate the hedgehogs with sugar or coconut. They look pretty pretty.

Dough ingredients:
  • 400  g of  wheat flour
  • 260  g of  butter at room temperature
  • 110  g of  powdered sugar
  • 1  piece  Egg yolk (egg yolk from an egg size M)
  • 0.5  Tl  vanilla extract alternatively vanilla flavor
  • 30  grams of  walnuts

  • 120  g  couverture bittersweet
  • 60  g  chocolate sprinkles whole milk
  • Children biscuit recipes forest animals

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top / bottom heat or 160 degrees air circulation. Cover baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Wheat flour, butter, powdered sugar and egg yolk to a smooth dough process. Remove dough and put half a walnut in the dough and then form a tear with your hand. Please make sure that the dough encloses the walnut and from experience I can say, the bigger the hedgehog, the longer it stays on the cookie plate.
  3. Place the hedgehog cookies on the baking paper and bake at the above temperature for approx. 13 - 15 minutes, middle rack.
  4. After the baking time, remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly and then let cool completely on a cake rack.
  5. Chop the couverture and carefully melt in a water bath. Fill a bowl with the chocolate sprinkles. Dice the hedge of the hedgehog in the melted chocolate and immediately into the chocolate sprinkles. Then let it rest on a backing lined with baking paper. Drizzle the snout and eyes with a toothpick or a lint-free cotton bud with chocolate.
  6. I hope you enjoy your Bärbel
