If we can’t go to Mickey, then Mickey will come to us!
Let’s go for the recipe!
- 200 grams of flour;
- 25 grams of hazelnut powder ;
- 120 grams of unsalted butter;
- 1 beaten egg ;
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa ;
- 70 grams of sugar ;
- 100 grams of chocolate chips
Start by putting the butter in the microwave for 15/20 seconds to soften it.
Add the sugar, hazelnut powder and beaten egg. Mix well (with the hook of a food processor or by hand).
Then add the flour and cocoa and knead …
After obtaining a nice paste, keep it in a cool place for at least 1 hour.
Once the dough has cooled, separate it into two equal parts. With the first half, make a sausage (for the head).
Divide the other half in half and again make sticks out of the dough, smaller this time (for the ears).
Put the sausages back in the fridge for a little while, so that they harden and are easier to cut.
Cut slices out of each of the socks and join them together in the shape of Mickey’s heads. They will cook very well if you place them with your ears lightly pressed against the head.
Bake them for 8 to 10 minutes in an oven at 170°C depending on the thickness of the biscuits!
Be patient and wait until the shortbread biscuits have cooled down before peeling them off the baking paper, otherwise Mickey might lose an ear … or both!
