- 2-⅔ ounces, weight Flour, All Purpose
- ¼ teaspoons Salt
- 1-¼ ounces, weight Butter, Chilled
- ¼ whole Egg Yolk, Beaten
- 2 tablespoons, 1 teaspoon, 1-⅝ pinches Water Cooled
- 12 whole Chicken Or Similar Veggie Or Fish Nuggets (can Be Purchased From The Grocery Store)
Preparation InstructionsSift the flour. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Mix. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Next add approximately 1/4 of the beaten egg yolk and also add the water. Mix well your hands. Try to work quickly.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.
Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 10 inch square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin.
Next prepare the nuggets as per the packet instructions. (I used homemade cutlets). Let cool.
Next cut the dough. You need two dough cutters – one beak/ head/neck shaped cutter and one wings shaped cutter. If you don’t have cutters draw a shape on a piece of paper and cut it out . Place the pattern on top of the dough and cut it out with a sharp knife. You’ll need to cut out 12 beak/head/neck shapes and 24 wings.
Next place them on a greased baking tray and bake about 7 minutes at 180 C degrees or until the crust is light brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
You are ready to decorate. Make three holes in the nuggets using a toothpick. Then stick in the wings and neck, pressing down to seal. I’ve done this in the photo above.
After that, you can decorate the duck shaped appetizer with eyes and mouth/beak. I’ve done so in the photo using food coloring for the eyes and mouth/beak.
