Author Recipe adapted from “Cioccolato” – Jacqueline Bellefontaine – 1998 Parragon, London


  • 75 gms – 2.65 oz. sugar
  • 75 gms – 2.65 oz. butter at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tbsp milk
  • 225 gms – 8 oz. flour
  • 25 gms – 0.9 oz. cocoa powder
  • Royal Icing
  • Food colouring
  • Edible Ink Pen


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment on low to medium speed. Mix until well incorporated.
  2. Add the egg and milk and mix well. Sift the flour and cocoa powder together, add to the bowl and mix well. The dough will be ready when it clumps around the paddle attachment.
  3. Roll it into a 6 mm – ¼ inch thick sheet and cut out your cookies using a cardboard stencil (I make these all the time and it is quite easy, all you need is a printed image of what you want to make, some clean cardboard, some transfer paper, a pen and a sharp exacto knife. Put the transfer paper between the image and the cardboard and transfer the image onto the cardboard by tracing the outline with a pen. Then cut out the shape).
  4. Put the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. When ready, let them cool down on the baking tray for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely.
  6. In the meantime, prepare your Royal Icing following my tutorial.
  7. When the cookies have cooled down completely, decorate them with the white icing. Start by outlining the shapes with a very thin line of icing and then fill it in (“flooding”) with the same icing. Some people use a thinner consistency of icing to flood the cookies, but I used the same icing (a bit thicker) to outline and flood because it saved me time. I also made my own piping bags with baking paper.
  8. After flooding them, I let them dry and then I added all the details (eyes and mouth) with an edible ink marker.
  9. Let them set completely before serving them.
