Cornflake Cookies ~ CNY 2011




Good old fashioned Cornflake Cookies .....  I'm sure that these cookies are a common sight in many households during CNY as they are very easy to make.  Old fashioned they may be, but as long as they're crunchy and aromatic, they'll be well received and they have always been a hit amongst my nieces and nephews, each year.





These are real crunchy, not overly sweet and nutritious.

Ingredients
  • 12 oz butter/margarine
  • 15 oz self-raising flour
  • 1.1/2  eggs
  • 8 oz caster sugar
  • 3 oz crushed cornflakes
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • A pinch of salt
  • Crushed cornflakes for coating
Method
  1. Sift the flour with salt, set aside.
  2. Cream  the butter and sugar till light and fluffy, but not overdoing it.
  3. Add in the eggs, vanilla, mix well.
  4. Fold in sifted flour and crushed cornflakes.
  5. Let the mixture rest for a while in the fridge for about 20 mins.
  6. Lightly roll them into balls and toss them into the crushed cornflakes to coat.
  7. Place them onto paper lined baking trays, about 1 inch apart.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 20 to 25 mins., or till light golden brown.
  9. Let them cool on the  baking tray for about 5 mins. before removing them to cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. Store cooled cornflakes in air-tight cookie jars.
  11. Makes 100 cookies.
Note :  1 packet  of  275 gm  Nestle or Kelloggs cornflakes will be sufficient.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
