Lace Almond Cookies


These gorgeous see-through lacy almond cookies caught my eye when I was surfing the internet for something light, wafer sort of cookie that can go down well with my homemade ice cream.   These wafers are studded with almonds and oats though I find them to be a wee bit buttery.  You only need a teaspoon of the batter per cookie as they do spread real flat during baking, hence, you'll need to allow more spreading room.


Pretty, delicate and highly addictive!

Recipe for Lace Almond Cookies (adapted from  'here'  with modifications)

    Ingredients

    • 5 oz butter, melted (reduced from 2/3 cup)
    • 3 oz brown sugar   (reduced from 1 cup)
    • 1/4 cup light corn syrup (I used golden syrup)
    • 1 Tbsp milk
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 4.1/2 oz rolled oats
    • 2 Tbsp plain flour
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1/2 cup/2 oz  toasted and finely chopped almonds
    • 1 tsp lightly toasted black sesame seeds
    Method
    1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Melt the butter on low heat, add brown sugar, golden syrup, milk and salt, blend well.  
    3. Stir in the oats, flour and vanilla.
    4. Fold in the almonds.
    5. Drop 1 teaspoonful of batter onto the baking sheet, leave about 3 inches apart.  Bake for 7 to 8 mins. till golden brown and darker at the edges.
    6. Transfer to cool on a cooling rack, let cookies sit and firm up.
    7. Store in air-tight container in between parchment paper.
    8. Yield :  64 pieces.
    Note
    1. Do not underbake the cookies otherwise they'll be soft and not crispy.
    2. If they do turn soft later, reheat.

    1. Yes, I was infatuated with the lacy look of these cookies. But they don't stay crispy for long, need to reheat.

    1. No worries, once they'll well baked, they're ok. Can easily pop them into the oven toaster when they do turn soft.

    1. They're quite easy to make but make sure you leave them plenty of spread room while baking, they can really spread out flat.

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!
