Lemon Crinkle Cookies ~ 柠檬裂纹曲奇 ~ CNY 2016


These cookies are very lemony both in fragrance and flavour with crispy edges and a soft, chewy cakey centre.   Together with the delicate aroma of icing sugar, they were just irresistible after the first bite.  A word of caution though -  it was just impossible to roll the dough into balls even after I'd just taken it out of the refridgerator as due to our hot weather, the dough turned soft very quickly and it became very sticky.  So what I did was to pinch some dough and toss it into the icing or powdered sugar to coat.  Hence my cookies were not so uniform both in shape and in size!











These cookies are really yummy, something different from the normal CNY cookies, so why not add this to your CNY baking list too.........

  3. Hi Cheah,

    I think these cookies taste better in their irregular shapes... More crunch? :p

    1. Yes, I just hope that they did not flatten too much and I was glad that they didn't.

  4. I love anything lemony and I've not baked any lemony cookies before. It would be a nice change from chocolate chip cookies!

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.

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.

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.
