Classic Nick Thursday – Hedgehog Cookies


Now that Autumn is here, and the air is crisp wouldn’t it be fun to bake these awesome Hedgehog Cookies with your kids on Saturday afternoon just before you sit down as a family to watch some Classic Nickelodeon?

These fun and friendly cookies are brought to you by Ali Fedotowsky-Manno who baked them on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family. They are SOOO adorable, but do you know why I love them so much? They remind me of my favorite Pinwheel Cartoon Emily (Emilie) by Domitillede Pressens√®. Emily had a pet hedgehog named Humphrey and I these cookies are as cute as he was.

So, grab your kids, a few ingredients and make these cute cookies and then turn on some good old-fashioned, Classic Nickelodeon!


HEDGEHOG COOKIES
Ali Fedotowsky-Manno is making some fun cookies that kids will love.


Ingredients
⅓ cup butter, softened
¼ cup confectioners' sugar
⅔ cup all-purpose flour
⅔ cup ground hazelnuts
Pinch salt
½ cup milk chocolate chips
¼ cup crushed toffee candy
½ teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions
1) Preheat oven to 325°. In a small bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, hazelnuts, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Shape 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball; pinch the dough to form a face. Repeat. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.

2) Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

3) In a microwave, melt chocolate; stir until smooth. Holding a hedgehog cookie by the nose, spoon chocolate over the back (leave the face uncovered). Allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; immediately sprinkle crushed toffee onto the wet chocolate to look like hedgehog spikes.

4) With a toothpick dipped in chocolate, make two eyes and a dot on the nose. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.
