In the year of PIG, this Piggy German Butter Cookie is currently the hottest cookie to bake. The cookie is as buttery as shortbread biscuit while as crumbly as a butter cookie. Moreover, with the decent sweetness in this cookie which is not overly sweet, it is simply a perfect butter cookie recipe as a snack and a home-baked gift to your friends and family. When you start to put one in your mouth to enjoy the melt-in-the-mouth moment you are going to snack until they are all gone.
Be creative, you can basically shape this 6 ingredients German butter cookie dough into any style you like. Since 2019 is the year of PIG, everyone has gone crazy making cookies and any possible Chinese delicacy into the shape of a pig. My baking buddy, Mandy, has done a wonderful job by shaping the Piggy German Butter Cookie into a few styles and all of them are so adorable. Be it a simple piggy head, lying down piggy, valentine piggy or even a piggy wearing a Chinese New Year costume (scroll down to the last image), they are sure huge is wow factor.
