Christmas cookies are usually very sweet and before you know it the whole family has got a sugar shock! These little chocolate paws are pleasantly herbal bitter and just slightly sweet. A potential favorite biscuit for all chocoholics ;-)
For 2 baking trays:
1 1/2 - 2 oz. flour (50g)
6 oz. starch (170g)
3 oz. icing sugar (80g)
1 oz. cocoa (30g)
1 sachet vanilla sugar
1/2 lb. margarine (200g)
2 tbsp. soy milk
3-4 oz. dark chocolate coating (100g)
Mix the flour, starch, sugar and cocoa. Work it together with the margarine and milk to a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a foil and chill it for about half an hour. Then shape the dough into a loaf and cut of oval cookies. Imprint the fork on one side of the cookie. Bake them at 360°F (180°C) for about 12 minutes.
Coat the plain side of the paws with the dark chocolate and and let them chill once again.
