Baked Mini Doughnuts ~ 香烤迷你甜甜圈


The texture of these baked mini doughnuts is different from the normal deep fried doughnuts.  These taste more like cake and best consumed within the day they're baked.  A wonderful tea-time treat!

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.
