Owl Cookies

Owl Cookies Recipe
I saw a picture of the Owl Cookies on the Net and simply liked them. They are said to be sold at the Borough Market in London. They are a great treat for kids and you can make them for your child's birthday party. I read that they are shortbread cookies but I used a Foundation Biscuits Recipe.

Ingredients :
24 Chocolate chips
12 Almonds
Foundation Biscuits Dough 
Ingredients for owl cookies
  • Once the dough is ready, you may roll it out onto a flat board to half inch thickness.
  • (I made mine about 1/4" thick and got 12 owls but realized that it would be better to make it even thicker so that the almond would sink in better.)
  • Using round biscuit cutters, cut one large round and two smaller ones for each owl.
  • Using a little water, fix the eyes and almond in place.
  • Press in the choco chip cookies pointed side down.
  • Lightly flour a baking sheet and place the cookies on it.

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • In my convection microwave, the first batch got done in 10 minutes and the second in 8 minutes. (If you make the Owl Cookies thicker, they will probably take a bit longer)
