Suzy's Zoo Boof Cookies

Suzy's Zoo Boof Cookies

I tried making cookies in the shape of the popular character Boof, from Suzy's Zoo. These take some time to make, but they're super cute.

Ingredients: Makes about 10 cookies

Butter
130 g
Sugar
110 g
Cake flour
280 g
Egg
1
Cocoa powder
as needed
Red food colouring
as needed

Steps

1. Preparation Sift the cake flour. Soften the butter by heating it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.
2. Cream the butter, then add the sugar and mix together.
3. Beat the egg, and add it to the butter and sugar. Once fully combined, add the cake flour and knead with your hands until the flour is absorbed.
4. Divide the finished dough into four. Colour the body and face portions with cocoa powder (make the face portion darker), a add red food colouring to the heart and cheek portion.
5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and allow them to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
6. Roll the dough 3-5 mm thick, and make the parts of each bear. This is how it looks when all of the parts of a bear are laid out . I used a bear-shape cookie cutter from the dollar store and squeezed it a little bit to make the shape of the head.
7. First make Boof's body, then stick on the head, arms and legs.
8. Next, stick on the face, ears and stomach area.
9. Lastly, stick on the facial features, the cheeks and the heart on the stomach. Draw a seam on with a utensil such as a knife.
10. Bake in an oven preheated to 170°C for about 10 - 13 minutes.
11. And they are complete I think that there may be slight differences between ovens, so please adjust the baking time accordingly.
12. Note: When dividing the dough, aim to have the light brown dough as the biggest portion, followed by the white dough. The remaining dough should be divided so that the pink dough is roughly the same size or a little bit bigger than the dark brown dough.
13. You can make the Witzy version in Recipe ID: 809763, so if you like, please give it a try.
