COUGNOUS are little and sweety buns generally made of milk bun or brioche, and sometimes decorated with a sweet little figure of Jesus. You also can find cougnous with chocolate chips, sugar or raisins. They are also called coquilles.
There are 2 kinds of cougnous:
LOW COST RECIPE FOR OUR “ALTERNATIVE COUGNOU”
Due to their high price… (a cougnou might cost between €2,5 and €4,5 in Belgian Christmas Markets, Villages Nordiques, supermarkets… and the only little figure of Jesus, €1) ¡we bring you the FUNNY LOW COST RECIPE to make it at home!
Place all ingredients on the kitchen table (if you’ve brought home the neighbour who provided you the sugar, much better [You know what I mean…]). Open the bag, take the milk buns, use the sugar, and place the Manneken Pis candy on top of your bun. Do not try to put it in the microwave, it will melt, making you lose such a valiable milk bun of 10 cents! Serve, et voilà!
TOTAL PRICE of our cougnou: 15 cents! (+ a posible relationship with your neighbour).
