Chocolate Moustache Biscuits for Movember

Movember chocolate cookies

As you probably know, not only is it November, it’s Movember. Although I have a pretty impressive moustache for a girl, I don’t think growing it out would be noticeable enough to raise awareness. So instead, I thought I would bake these cute moustache biscuits. If you’re from the UK, these are actually modelled on the classic bourbon chocolate biscuit, if you have no idea what a bourbon is – you are missing out and should make and eat these asap. They are SO chocolatey without being too sweet. Perrrrfect. Plus they are shaped like moustaches, that’s just hilarious. And yes, I did hold them up in front of my face before eating them as did my flatmates… I think I would look pretty cool with a handlebar moustache.

Movember moustache cookies

I want to say thanks so much to Movember Germany – I got in contact with them asking where you can buy moustache cookie cutters and they just sent me one for free because they are awesome. Today, I’m going to be donating to this great cause which not only allows us all to see more people with insane moustache designs but MORE importantly raises vital funds and awareness for prostate, testicular cancer and mental health.”Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health”If you want to donate click here to find out how.

250g (9oz) plain flour, plus extra to dust
125g (4oz) unsalted butter, chilled, cut into cubes
125g (4oz) caster sugar
2tbsp golden syrup

Method:
1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Mix all the biscuit ingredients together in a bowl until thoroughly mixed. Place on a floured work surface and bring together into a lump of dough.
2 Roll it out on a sheet of baking paper, trying to keep it rectangular and dusting your rolling pin with flour as needed. Cut the rectangle with the moustache cookie cutter as many times as possible and remove excess dough. Re-roll this extra dough and cut with cookie cutter until there is no dough left. Chill for 30min in the fridge.
3 Bake for 12 min, then allow to cool.
4 For the filling, put the butter into a large bowl and sift in the icing sugar and cocoa powder. Mix until combined.

5 Once the biscuits have cooled, place the filling between two moustache cookies and sandwich.

Enjoy!
