Most tricolored cats are female. In Japan, because male tricolored cats are rare, they are considered a symbol of good fortune. Since ancient times, the tricolored cat has been used as a lucky cat and as a protector at sea.
Today, I would like to introduce a way to make Tricolored Cat Biscuit Cookies. I hope it will be liked by cat star lovers!

How to Make Tricolor Cat Cookies
call sth. out separately
Low gluten flour for plain dough, 80g
38g low gluten flour, 2g cocoa powder for light brown dough
32g low gluten flour, 8g cocoa powder for dark brown dough
Then sift the three separately for later use.
These are the ingredients needed to make the butter batter.
Take the butter out of the refrigerator beforehand, and let it come to room temperature and soften.
Add the sifted powdered sugar to the butter and mix well.
Add 30g of the whole egg mixture (in several additions), stirring while adding.
Add the almond flour and mix well.
This is what it looks like when it is mixed.
Divide the butter and egg batter into 3 portions according to 2:1:1.
Separate the plain dough, light dough and dark dough into 3 parts of low gluten flour.
The total weight of the buttered egg batter I made was 216 grams.
Calculate their weight in the ratio 2:1:1.
1/2 of the total dough needed for the original dough.
216/2 = 108 g
Deep (shallow) dough needed for each 1/4 of the overall total
216/4 = 59 g
Knead all three separately into a dough.
Wrap all three in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 or 3 hours.
Cut the plain dough into 8 strips and the dark (light) brown dough into 4 strips each. Divide into 4 groups as shown. (2 strips each of plain and 1 strip each of dark and light brown)
Cut them into 1 cm thick pieces.
Arrange them cut side up, flat side up.
Roll out with a rolling pin to your preferred thickness. (Make sure the thickness is as even as possible, about 0.8 cm thick is best)
Snap out the cat shape with the mold.
Stack the remaining edge preps together (be careful to gently stack them together as close to the original shape as possible, not rubbing with your hands. This way the snap out cat-shape pattern will be clear.)
Pile it together.
Using a rolling pin, roll it out into a thin sheet and then fasten it with the mold to create the cat shape.
Repeat this a few times until you snap the last cat shape.
This is the finished Tri-Cat Cookies.
After preheating the oven to 170 degrees, bake the cookies for 20-25 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool. (Adjust the time according to your own oven.)
Each Tricolor cat is unique, each one crispy and delicious! (Is there some reluctance to eat them)
