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.

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.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
