Actually, i intend to bake this for Aspiring Bakers #3: My Favourite CNY Cookie (Jan 2011). But was too busy to post it in my blog and now it too late. This is my another favourite cookies for new year. I always have a soft spot for buttery taste cookies and my son loves it too. All recipes will be post, when i find time to key it in.
120g ghee (QBB)
70g Icing sugar
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
180g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg yolk A for glazing
- Cream ghee and icing sugar till combined. Add egg yolk, salt, vanilla essence and mix well.
- Fold in sifted flour.
- Form into balls, press on the top of the cookies using finger and dip a little egg yolk.
- Bake at 180C for 15 min or till golden brown. Remove and leave to cool before storing.
personally, i still prefer to use ghee as the aroma is different. Ghee is made from fat of the goat's milk. You can easy
purchase it from supermarket or baking store. Maybe next time i'll try to omit the baking powder, because causes the
cookies to expand too much.
