Cornflake Cookies ~ 玉米曲奇 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
  • 240 gm butter
  • 140 gm caster sugar
  • 240 gm self-raising flour
  • 80 gm crushed cornflakes
  • 1 egg
  • 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 egg, 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.

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
