These baby hedgehog cookies are almost too cute to eat. However, they’re made from a yummy shortbread recipe, so they’re too tasty not to!
Earlier this month, the Food Bloggers of Los Angeles held their annual cookie swap, which I missed due to preparing to take a last minute trip to Germany.
I saw photos of all the bloggers’ wonderful cookies, but the baby hedgehog cookies I spotted which were made by my friend, Cathy who blogs at She Paused 4 Thought, were the cutest edible things I think I’ve ever seen! As soon as I saw them, I knew I wanted to make them, and I finally got a chance yesterday.
I used Cathy’s recipe, but omitted the spices to make a regular sugar cookie, and although I’m terrible at shaping or molding things, I think my baby hedgehog cookies turned out pretty well. I didn’t have toffee bits, so I used slivered and chopped almonds (the chopped are similar to the toffee bits, and easier to use) to create two different looks, as you can see from the photos.
When I was in Germany at the Christmas markets, I was looking for a gift for my daughter’s friend who loves animals. I came across this adorable hedgehog and knew it would be perfect for her. I just had to add it to my cookie shots–isn’t it sweet?
