Baking in China Special – Panda cookies Recipe

Cute Panda Cookies 超可爱的熊猫饼干

With my new Chinese baking equipment came a bunch of super cute panda cookie forms. I tried the recipe that came with it but I didn’t like the taste. The cookies turned out very hard and dry, so after experimenting I came up with my own recipe.

For 15 pieces you need:

  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 75g Powdered sugar
  • 175g low-gluten flour
  • 6g instant yeast
  • 25g starch
  • 100g melted dark chocolate or 20g cocoa powder


  • Panda cookie forms (you can get them on Taobao)


1. First wait until the butter is soft.


2. Add the powdered sugar and beat until fluffy.


3. Gradually add flour, yeast and starch, and mix until you get a smooth texture.


4. Take half of the mixture into another pot and add cocoa powder or melted dark chocolate.


5. Now you should have two different colored dough’s.



6. Start with the dark dough. Roll it out, approximately 2-3cm thick, and use the panda forms to cut out the bodies and put on baking paper.

TIP: If the dough is too sticky to cut out the figures, you can add a bit more flour to make it easier.



7. Continue with the yellow dough, and cut out panda faces, and body parts.



8. Preheat oven to 190°C, and bake cookies for about 12 to 15 minutes.



Wait until cool. Enjoy.
