Horlicks CookiesMarch 6, 2008
After my pound cake failure, I was too depressed! >.< I have to do something to spice up my sulky mood! Did a trial run of these cookies, as I was planning to make them for my cousin on sat! (^^,) Dogs? Bears? Pigs? what do they look like to you? :P was making these cookies when my mummy came home from groceries shopping, and her 1st reaction was “SOOOOO CUTE!! I wouldn’t bear to eat these piggy cookies!” >.< LOL, pigs? Kind of too far off yea? Gave some to my dearest buddy aishi, to “sample” them and she too commented that they look like bears >.> I’m having doubts on what to put as post titles. Piggies cookies? Bears cookies? *tap feet* and bro just came home and say they look like mices! GOSH! >.< i’m bad at shaping?
The name of this recipe? Horlicks doggies cookies! It was shared in kitchen carpers some time back, with really good reviews from forum mates. And NO
SUGAR OR EGG!*update* Thanks eatyet for pointing out :P As horlicks is a malted drink, there is already sugar traces in them, so no additional sugar is required to be added. Woot! Interesting aint it? and they are Cute lil thing too! Added in some crushed cornflakes to give the cookies some “bite” (^.^) these are so addictive and loveable! it is so fun, doing the features for the cookies! (^^,) check out the different “look” in their eyes! :D

DELICIOUS! And sooooooo cute~ a hit with the kids for sure~ it would be enjoyable to make them with children. :D I’m now thinking of adding in nuts the next time! As there is no sugar added, be generous with the chocolate chips if u are more to the sweet side :P i had around 8 pieces of chocolate chips in mine and it feels just right for me~ :D Unable to get Horlicks? u can replaced them with Milo or Ovaltine, it works the same, however the end product will be a darker tone doggie. =X
