Chinese New Year Cookies - Sheep German Cookies ~ 可爱小羊德国酥饼


This recipe that I'm going to share, is 1 of the most famous German cookies recipe that has gone viral this recently, almost everyone I know is making them, I see updates of this sheep German cookies not less than 5 times daily!! 

Of course they have gone viral, they're just so so cute! Although it's very time consuming to shape them into sheep, but they're actually very simple & easy to make. Feel free to involve your kids in making these too, I'm sure they would enjoy it to bits.

Other than shaping them into sheep, many other mummies have been very creative & shape them into other forms of animals too. 

This recipe was generously shared by a kind mummy on a Facebook group that I'm in, thanks for your generosity, mummy Sharon Khor.



 * Step-by-Step Tutorial *

Place the butter & sugar in a mixing bow.
Beat on medium speed until fluffy & light in color.

Sift in the flour.

The mixture will form into a soft dough.

Cling wrap the dough & chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours (so the shape can hold better).

Roll the dough into a small ball, I used a mini ice cream scoop, so every ball will be of the same size.

The dough will be able to form about 25 - 30 small balls.

Stick on 2 black sesame seeds on the center of each ball to form the eyes.

Roll the remaining dough into mini balls.

Place 2 of the mini balls on the center top of each ball.

Lastly, stick 2 chocolate chips on each side to form as the ears.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes.

Oh Gosh!! They're just so so cute aren't they?

    1. Hi, glad that you've enjoyed the cookies :)
      My chocolate chips stayed in shape even after baking, perhaps you can try chilling the chocolate chips before you shape them on the sheeps.
      I got my no brand chocolate chips from the baking supply shop by the way ;)

    1. Yes, no egg is needed. I'm not sure about substituting the potato flour with all-purpose flour but you can try it out probably in a smaller batch to see if the outcome is alright. Enjoy baking. :)
