How to make Peppa Pig Biscuits without a cookie cutter!

Share This

Making cookies for a Peppa Pig party what could be simpler.  Well it’s not as simple as you may think due to a lack of Peppa Pig shaped cookie cutters on the market.  I thought I would make it a little easier for you by doing a step by step guide  to making cookies for a Peppa Pig party, even without a cookie cutter!

First we make the basic biscuit recipe and while it’s chilling in the fridge we can make a template to cut around.  Lastly we decorate the biscuits and enjoy!

 Basic Biscuit Recipe

90g butter

100g golden caster sugar

1.Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.

2.In another large bowl cream the butter and sugar together, then beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

Make the Template

I cut out a picture from a Peppa Pig colouring pages website (make sure Peppa is the right size for a biscuit!) and then drew round it leaving a gap of about 1/2cm. You don’t need to go around the individual ears or legs as these will be differentiated with the icing sugar.

Decorating

I tried a couple of ways to decorate the biscuits. I finally plumped for the use of fondant icing. You can colour this yourself or buy the pre-coloured variety.

I used the original picture of Peppa to cut around but cut out the head and body separately.  I then used coloured icing in an icing piper to go around the edges, before adding the arms and legs.

I have to admit, it is a little fiddly with varied results for the different biscuits.  Just make sure you have plenty of time and a bit of patience before you embark on your biscuit making activity.  My kids thought they were yummy which is all that counts really!
