Recipe adapted from : Anncoojournal
Yields about 67 pcs (a mixture of pineapple, round and goat shapes)
250g Cold butter
75g Custard powder
140g Icing sugar
440g Plain flour
1 tsp Honey
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/8 tsp Egg yellow colour
About 500g to 550g Pineapple jam (I used store bought ready pack)
In a mixing bowl put cold butter (cut cubes), honey, vanilla extract, egg yellow colouring, egg and icing sugar together and mix roughly till mixtures crumbly (30 seconds).
Then add in the plain flour and custard powder and mix the mixture for another 30 seconds.
Place mixtures on to dusted flour table and knead to a smooth dough.
Dough : 15g each roll into small balls
Pineapple jam : 8g each roll into small balls
Flatten the dough and wrap the pineapple jam.
To make the "baby goat" face :
1. Shape it into rounds. Use a floral design cookie cutter to imprint the shape like hair.
2. Fold the tip of the straw into V. Press to make the mouth.
3. Shape the eyes using the tip of a plastic spoon or toothpick to make dots.
4. Use a pair of scissors to snip the sides as ears.
Preheat oven at 170°C, bake for about 15 - 17mins.
* the oven temperature may vary, do adjust accordingly.
By the way ... According to Goat World, a baby goat is called a kid.
My kids like "the kids" ... they said "the kids" are very nice 好吃!
Enjoy & Happy Baking ^-^!
Hope you have a great week ahead !
