Red Bean Biscuits ~ 'Tau Sar Paeng'


I made these 'Tau Sar Paeng' based on the recipe of my   Salted Egg Pastry,   but used  red bean paste as filling as the name suggests.   Can pass off as kaya puff, but when you bite into it, then you'll see!











Looks yummy?  I enjoy looking at the layers of pastry.  Now, all I need is a hot cup of Chinese tea to enjoy the fruits of my labour ........... Join me!

Ingredients          (Makes 9 pieces)

Water dough  
  • 160 gm plain flour, sifted
  • 10 gm caster sugar
  • 1/4  tsp golden syrup
  • 40 gm shortening
  • 50 ml water
  • 1/8  tsp salt
Oil dough
  • 130 gm plain flour, sifted
  • 60 gm shortening
Filling
  • Red bean paste, store bought
Egg glaze  - 1 egg yolk + 1 Tbsp water + a wee bit of salt

Method  - Water dough
  1. In a mixing bowl, mix the sifted flour with sugar and salt.  Add in golden syrup and shortening. Mix till well combined.  Slowly add in the water and knead to a soft dough till it doesn't stick to the hands.  Let dough rest for 30 mins., covered with a damp cloth.
Oil dough
  1. Mix the sifted flour and shortening, knead to a soft dough till it doesn't stick to the hands.  Let dough rest for 30 mins., covered with a  damp cloth.
To assemble
  1. Divide water dough into 30 gm each and roll into a ball.
  2. Divide oil dough into 20 gm each, roll into a ball.
  3. Wrap the oil dough inside the water dough, shape into a ball.
  4. Roll out, then roll up like a swiss roll.
  5. Roll out the swiss roll horizontally.
  6. Add in the red bean paste in the lower half of the dough, say about 2 tsp, apply egg white around the outer edges of the whole piece of dough, then fold the top half over the bottom half of the dough.  Ensure that the sides are sealed properly and shape the dough into a triangle.
  7. Apply egg glaze, twice, sprinkle on some sesame seeds.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 25 mins. or till golden brown.
  9. Let cool on tray for 5 mins. before removing them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Oooh, very nice! Looks very professional :) Is this the same way to make "bay tay soh"? Sorry I don't know how to write the Chinese characters (that's just what it sounds like to my ears). I love that biscuit but I don't know what sort of filling is in it.

    Anyway, would love to one day have a cup of tea with you and your beautiful looking tau sah peah :)

    It's heong paeng alright. Ipoh is also famous for this delicacy too. Bay teh soh is what they call it in Penang. Filling is I think, mak ngah tong and shallots.

  7. At a glance I thought they were Beh Tay Sor or heong peng :) I like them a lot and I just bought a packet of it from NY over the weekend. You are really good at making this type of pastry.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

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.
