Sweet rabbit ear lard pastry

Hasenöhrl are popular in southern Germany with modified recipes. It is a simple lard pastry made from a kneaded dough. To add some sophistication, they came up with this shape. The rabbit ears (Hasenöhrl) are created by a cut in the upper part of the diamond dough pieces. Rolled out nice and thin, these narrow ends will then also bend in the hot rendering fat.To make it look a little more interesting, you can use a serrated kitchen wheel for cutting.

Since there is no sugar in the dough itself, the Hasenöhrl can also be served as a side dish to a hearty meal.
By the way, the ideal temperature for lard pastry is 180°C.
