Bear cookies-baby boy

I made a lard dough with cocoa

800 gr of flour
240 gr of lard
320 gr of white sugar
100 gr cocoa powder
4 yolk and 2 whole egg 
1 tsp of vanilla ore one vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 grated lemon
2 tsp quality rum

I put the flower on the work place, made a hole in the center where I put immediatelly all ingredients. Leave the lard on room temperature so will be tender, easier to made the dought with hands. I put it into the fridge for one hour. Cut half dough with body cookie cutter, 1/4 with standing beat, 1/4 with sitting bear. You could do also some hearts... how you prefer.

I baked them 8 minutes on 180°C in the pre-heated oven. Cool them and then decorate with icing.

The recipe I used is:
4 albumens
4 tsp of lemon
800 gr of sugar powder

Mix albumens with some sugar powder untill you add all. Mix for 10 minutes then add the lemon juice. Regulate the density with some other sugar powder. The royal icing is ready for youse when you take up the mixer and the icing "stay up".

Separate in two. One half colorate in brown. From the white one take out 3 spoons and colorate in blue, add some sugar, the blue icing need to be thicker. From whe white one take 2 spoons and add also here some sugar, need to be thicker for body details. Decorated this way..... You could decorate every step after about 20-30 minutes, when the icing made a crust on the surface od the cookies.
