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.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
