How adorable are these little hedgehog cookies? So simple and sweet!

This easy-to-follow recipe by Marie McGrath from Marie's Bakehouse is great for beginners, or for making with kids on a rainy day!

You will need

To decorate

  • your favourite cookie dough (I used vanilla)
  • brown sugarpaste (I used brown ProGel to colour mine)
  • cooled boiled water
  • a small amount of black sugarpaste

Equipment

  • paintbrush
  • dresden tool
  • hedgehog cookie cutter

Instructions

1
Roll out the cookie dough and cut out several hedgehog cookies with the cutter.
2
Bake the cookies following the recipe instructions, then leave to cool completely.
3
Roll out some brown sugarpaste, then using the same cookie cutter you used for the cookies, cut out hedgehog shapes.
4
Use cooled boiled water to stick the sugarpaste to the cookies.
5
Use the dresden tool to mark lines on the cut out shape to give it texture and the impression of spines. Start at the back of the hedgehog and work forwards, leaving a little space at the front for the face. Mark a smile with the dresden tool.
6
Using cooled boiled water, stick on a tiny ball of black sugarpaste for an eye.
7
Once dry, put the cookies in cellophane bags and tie with a ribbon.
