Roll out again, spread with 1/2 of the remaining cheese, fold up and let rest (covered) for another 15 minutes. Roll out again, spread with cheese and fold and let rest for another 15 minutes.

Roll out about 1 1/2 – 2 cm in thickness, cut out 12 large disks, 12 small disks and 6 medium disks. The large disks will be the heads, the small will be the noses, the medium will be the ears.  Cut the medium discs into 4.

Place the large disks onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Brush with the beaten egg.  Take the small disks and using the straw poke 2 holes into it that will make the nose.  Place the nose disks onto the faces.

Now, cut the medium disks into four (like a pie) and stick them on the left and right top of the head. These are the ears.

Also place two peppercorns for the eyes above the nose.  Now brush with the beaten egg again.

Preheat oven to 350F (about 175-180C
