Holicks Doggie Cookies

Made these for my son's class at childcare for Christmas as well as for some colleagues of mine. I adapted the recipe from Happy Home Baking. I thought it was not sweet enough, but it is healthier. You could add some castor sugar while creaming the holicks and butter. A tablespoon should be sweet enough for one portion.

Here is the recipe for it:

Horlicks Doggies Cookies
(makes about 48 cookies)

180g butter, soften at room temperature
80g Horlicks (original flavour)
200g top flour or cake flour
25g corn flour
25g milk powder.
100g chocolate chips
some chocolate rice
some Koko Krunch

  1. Pre-heat oven to 140deg C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Sieve top flour, corn flour and milk powder.
  3. Cream butter and Horlicks for about three minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.
  4. Put in top flour, cornflour and milk powder and beat for about one minute to form dough.
  5. Divide dough into 10g each. Put three chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
  6. Insert two pieces of Koko Krunch to form the 'ears', chocolate rice for the "eyes", and a chocolate chip in the centre for the 'nose'.
  7. Bake at 150 deg C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.
  8. Leave to cool on wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
