Cereal doggies cookies

For halal bihalal (Eid El Fitr celebration) at the school, my children are asked to bring cookies as the potluck. Cookies? I know it was still a week of Eid El Fitr, there must be a lot of cookies in every house. But not in mine...my children are cookie monsters. They love cookies a lot. Cookies here always disappear in no time...^^ I already bookmarked this cereal doggies cookies in mba Yulyan Parwati's blog since early of this year. And I thought this would be a perfect time to bake it. Children will surely love these cute cookies, won't they? 
The method part of the original recipe stated that we had to sift the flour and the milk powder but the ingredients part did't mention anything about milk powder. So, I just put in 25 gr milk powder in it.      
Actually this is an easy cookie, especially for people with artistic hands...for me, it really  took a long long time to form the dough looked like a doggy...




Ingredients:

180 gr butter, soften at room temperature
105 gr cereal beverages with mung bean flavour 
200 gr top flour or cake flour
25 gr corn flour
25 gr milk powder
some chocolate chips
some chocolate rice
some koko krunch




Methods:

Sift together top flour, corn flour and milk powder.
Cream butter and cereal for about 3 minutes at low speed. Do not overbeat.
Put in the flour and beat for about one minutes to form dough.
Divide dough into 10 gr each.
(I didn't weight it, just take a little bit and roll it)
Put 3 chocolate chips into each piece of dough and roll into balls.
(I put some chocolate rice instead)
Insert two pieces of koko krunch to form the ears, chocolate rice for the eyes, and a chocolate chip in the centre for the nose.
Bake at 140C for about 25 minutes. Depending on your oven, it may take another 5 to 10 minutes more for the cookies to be ready.
Leave to cool on the wire rack before storing in an airtight container.
