1. Easy Pig Face Cookie Without Cookie Cutter

      We need just a paring knife and plate to make these pig’s faces. The batter can be any, just should not have too much rise when baking. The perfect is if we use a sugar cookie recipe. I saw some designs with a pig’s snout made out of a small piece of dough but it makes more complications and takes longer to make cookies than the technique I shared with you. This design is so easy because we don’t need to make many small details on the face, just one cut, and a clip. Eyes I made it with two tiny drops of melted chocolate. However, we can make eyes for the pigs easier, just 2 edible seeds and done. Seeds can be black sesame, flax seeds, or raisins, for example. Another option, we can make eyes with a small straw out of dry fruits. For example, cherry, plums, dates… Endless possibilities to make eyes for this cookie design!

We need:

Paring knife

Squeeze slightly the straw on the sides or leave the round shape. Both ways will be cute. I show on the page the technique to make the mouth with a spoon.
