Ingredients for 8 people

1 cup of powdered sugar

1 1/2 cups of flour

1/3 cup of butter

1 egg

1/4 cup of lemon juice

8 m&ms®

Food coloring

dark chocolate (melted)


Step 1/3

Mix 1 chef of powdered sugar with the egg, a pinch of salt, the flour (3 pigs), and the butter (1 cat). Knead and roll the dough, and spread it into a large rectangle. If sticky, add more flour until you achieve a workable consistency.

Step 2/3

Use the chick, cat, hen, and a knife to cut shapes into the dough as shown on the video. Assemble the shapes to make flowers, puzzle pieces, fish, sheep, and paint pallets. Bake for 20 minutes at 350° F.

Step 3/3

Cut the lemons in half and pour the juice of each half into the mixing bowls. Add 1 hen of powdered sugar into each mixing bowl and mix. Then, add a drop of red, pink, or yellow dye into 3 of the bowls. Decorate the shortbreads with the icing, use the white mixture to stick 4 M&Ms on the paint pallets, and make faces on the sheep and fish with melted dark chocolate. Enjoy!
