Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven for 400
  • Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray
  • Open Italian bread dough and roll out on counter-top.
  • Using a "round" cookie cutter or lid from a peanut butter jar, cut out as many circles as you can get out of the dough.
  • Place one dough cut-out on the cookie sheet. Top with a teaspoon sized portion of ham and cheddar cheese. Cover with a second round dough cut-out and crimp the edges together tightly.
  • Cut out small triangles from the left over dough and position on dough circles to form the pig ears.
  • Using a bottle cap, cut out small dough circles and place in center of pig's head to form the nose.
  • Using a knife, press slits in the nose portion to create nostrils. Chop rosemary sprigs into short lengths and press into nostril slits to give them more definition.
  • Use two peppercorns and press into place to create the eyes.
  • Crack egg into a bowl and mix together briskly to make an egg wash. Using a pastry brush, coat each piggy face with egg wash.
  • Repeat so that all the dough is used up.
  • Place cookie sheet in oven for about 10 minutes or until they start to brown.
  • Remove cookie sheet and using a spatula transfer each pig biscuit to a plate. Serve immediately.
  • Determine if your kids are good enough children to go through the trouble to make these again!! =0)
