It was Eurovision night and me and my friends were planning a party. Perfect opportunity to have a good laugh baking and decorating the perfect house husband for us. We were definitely up for some good cheeky fun!
So, I dressed up for the occasion – I have to feel fabulous no matter the occasion! – got the ingredients ready and set out to do some baking for the big Eurovision night. To keep things simple and make sure things went well, I used the recipe on the back of the cookie cutter package.
Ingredients you will need for the cookies:
- 180 gr butter
- 100 gr sugar
- 300 gr flour
- 1 egg
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
Measure all the ingredients and mix them in a bowl. Start with the butter and the sugar, follow up with the flour. When it’s all well mixed, add the salt and the vanilla extract. Wrap the dough in cling film and throw it in the fridge for an hour. Once an hour has passed, rescue it and roll it between 2 sheets of greased paper. Apply the cookie cutter to the dough as you can see in the picture:
Once you have a baking tray full of them, heat up the oven to 180 degrees and put them in there for 7-10 minutes. As they are oddly shaped, it might be difficult to bake them all at once.
Here they are, all nice and golden, ready to be decorated into the perfect men.
We got a bunch of decorating supplies and got to work! Filipa is looking very concentrated.
And here’s the end result: a guy for every taste. Some beach bums, a naked bear, a Portuguese hunk, some S&M gay dudes and the fellow from the Specials.
I received the cookie cutter as a sample, if you want to get your own, you can find it here.
PS: Conchita won, wooo!
