Oaty Crisps


I was doing a stock-take of my fridge and chanced upon a packet of mixed cereals tucked in an inconspicuous corner.   It must be some leftover.  A hurried check on the expiry date revealed that it's still edible.  So, I flicked through my recipe collection, subtract, add, tweak a bit and came up with these healthy cookies which I'll simply name, 'Oaty Crisps'.














These cookies are crispy on the outside and a little chewy on the inside and they are packed with wholesome  nutrients.  As the festive season is not too far away, I suppose this recipe will come in handy for X'mas too!

Ingredients
  • 4 oz plain flour
  • 4oz butter/margarine
  • 3 oz mixed cereal  OR  any type of dried fruits, nuts and seeds
  • 3 oz rolled oats
  • 3oz caster sugar
  • 2  Tbsp golden syrup
  • 1/2  tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2  tsp vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Sift flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl, set aside.
  2. Mix in the rolled oats and mixed cereals.
  3. Combine golden syrup and butter in a saucepan, heat and keep stirring till butter melts.
  4. Pour in the melted butter/golden syrup mixutre into the flour mixture, and mix thoroughly.
  5. Roll mixture into balls, the size of a walnut.
  6. Place them 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking tray, press lightly with the palm of your hand.
  7. Bake in preheated oven @ 150 deg C for about 12 to 15 mins. or till golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool on tray for 5 mins. before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Store these cookies in an air-tight cookie jar once they are completely cooled.
  10. Makes 24 cookies.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
