Let's play with food? Make cookies is really easy and the doggy shape fascinate the kids. It's a pity to eat them but, hello!, it's brigadeiro's filling!! Can you resist?

100g butter

190g sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
260g flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder
Chocolate sprinkles

150ml sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp butter in room temperature
1 tbsp cocoa powder

Sift the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
Cream together butter and sugar until is pale and fluffy. Add egg and beat again. Add vanilla and beat a little more. Fold in the flour and baking powder. Separate about 3 tbsp of the dough and stir in cocoa powder. Leave the both dough in fridge for 15 minutes covered with wrap.

Whisk together the sweet condensed milk, butter and cocoa. Cook in slow heat, whisking to not make any lump. When you can see the base of pan and the mixture is creamy, remove from heat and let cool. Do not leave it too thick because will bake yet. Roll into small balls sizing with a teaspoon and let to chill in fridge or freezer just until cold.

To Finish
Preheat the oven to 370˚C.
Roll the white dough into small balls, filling with a ball of the brigadeiro filling. Make the ears with the dark dough. Use two sprinkle as the eyes. Bake for 7-10 minutes just until the base is golden brown. Let them cool in a rack.

Makes: 35 puppies.
