Dalmatian Puppy Cookies

These seem to be everyone’s favorite yummy thing made from the Puppy mold.
The recipe is also on the back of the Puppy Mold’s box.

Dalmatian Puppy Cookie made with ZANDA PANDA's Puppy Mold!




No-spread cookie dough:

  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups superfine sugar (not powdered)
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. fine grain (table) salt
  • Red gel food coloring (optional)

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well.

Mix dry ingredients together and add gradually to egg mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Lightly dust Puppy Mold with flour. For one big, round cookie, roll cookie dough into a 9” circle, then press into the mold.

For individual Puppy Cookies, dust mold with flour and press dough into the puppy shape of the mold.

For best detail, bake right in the mold, but cookies can also be baked on a cookie sheet. Bake 7-12 minutes, depending on thickness, until edges are golden brown.

To make a Dalmatian Puppy Cookie: Paint melted chocolate directly into the mold for eyes, nose and spots. For a pink tongue, add a tiny bit of red gel food coloring (use a toothpick) to a small amount of dough, blend and press into the mold.  Then gently press cookie dough into just the puppy shape of the mold.   Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness.  Melted chocolate can also be painted on the cookie after baking, using a small artist’s brush.

Next, I’d like to try making border collie puppy cookies using a little cocoa in half the cookie dough…

Where does your Puppy Mold snuggle up while he’s waiting for you to bring him to his forever home?

A Nice Sturdy Doghouse?

Not exactly, but it’s easy to wrap as a gift.

You probably don’t think too much about packaging. I had been thinking of nothing else for a while.

We went through three packaging designs before coming up with this cutey. But it can stand on it’s own or hang from a peg, with adorable little doggies all around, begging with their cute little puppy eyes to be brought home to make yummy and fun stuff for you.

There’s lots of info and tasty recipes on the sides and back, too.  You’re going to have so many smiles and giggles coming your way, you won’t know what to do with them!

Although you may be risking cuteness overload, there’s lots more Puppy Mold info at the ZANDA PANDA website.

If you’d like to reserve your Puppy Mold,  just e-mail us at: and mention the Puppy Mold in the subject line.
