Horlicks Doggie Biscuits

I think a lot of people have made these Horlicks Doggie Biscuits since they first appeared in the food blogs. However, there are still people who have not seen them yet and I am quite sure that my little nephews and niece have not. I did the first batch many moons ago and gave them to JW during her condo warming party. I have to give credit to the blogger who I picked the recipe from. Back then, I have just only started my cooking adventure, hence was not too "clever" with improvising. The recipe which was recommended by Florence of Do What I Like asked for "Top Flour". I didn't know what that was, and used ordinary flour. Cookies didn't turn out that fine.


This was the 1st attempt and I bought the duo Koko Crunch box. Hence, the white eared doggies.

This is my second attempt and this time, I followed Florence's recipe to the letter and the results were much better. The recipe has been reproduced below.

Ingredients:

180g butter

80g Horlicks

100g chocolate chips

200g top flour

25g cornflour

25g milk powder

15g castor sugar

Koko Krunch


Method:

1) Sift the flour, cornflour and milk powder.

2) Cream the butter and Horlicks for 3 minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.

3) Add the sifted flour and beat for about one minute to form a dough.

4) Divide dough into 10g each. Embed 3 chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into a ball.

5) Insert 2 pieces of Koko Krunch to form the ears and 1 chocolate chip as the nose.

6) Bake at 140 degC for about 25 minutes.

7) Cool before storing.




2nd attempt

This is the 2nd attempt, which I did on Saturday morning. There were not enough cookies from the 1st attempt to give to my nephews and niece but I did share the photos with my brother, of which he commented "You sure they are dogs? They look like pandas lah.. cept for the ears". So, this time, I have some slit-ty eyed doggies. Which led to one of my nephew asking, "Why are some of the dogs eyes like that?". I told him " Those are chinese doggies lah... flat nose, beady eyes"..haha..Can't please everybody.
