Welcoming the Year of the Pig

We are welcoming the Year of The Pig with these Melt-in-the-Mouth German cookies. Look at those cute little piglets. Oink! Oink! Oink! Oink!


125 gr butter

40 gr icing sugar

150 gr potato starch

100 gr top flour (extra-fine quality flour to give exceptionally smooth and fine texture)

1 tsp vanilla essence

Black sesame seed (for the eyes)


Heat the oven to 150 degree celcius (conventional, NOT fan forced) and prepare a baking tray lined with a baking paper.

Beat the butter and icing sugar until pale.

Add in vanilla essence - and beat.

Fold in potato starch and top flour and mix them until forming a soft dough.

Separate a small portion of the dough and put a little bit of food colouring (red) to form a pink dough (needed for the noses and ears).

How to make the piglets:

Weigh 12 gram of the dough and roll it into a ball.

Put them in the baking tray.

Decorate them:

- make an oval dough for the nose and prick it with a skewer.

- make two small dough for the ears.

- put the black sesame seed for the eyes

Bake for about 18-20 minutes.
