- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 cups sugar
- 1 Tbs. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup cream or milk, or more as needed
- dried currants, for eyes
Combine all dry ingredients, and then gradually add in the milk while stirring. If you need a bit more milk, add it until you have one cohesive and soft dough. Press the dough out on your work surface to a thickness of around 3/4″ thick. Using a sharp paring knife, cut out a rough wolf shape. Don’t worry if it’s a little ugly: Hot Pie’s was rustic as well!
Cut extra strips for additional legs and press them onto the main wolf shape, or leave them with just two legs. Cut a criss-cross shape for teeth and press a currant into the dough for an eye. If you like, texture the tops with the tines of a fork.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are a nice golden brown.
