Steamed Purple Sweet Potato Kuih


This Steamed Purple Sweet Potao Kuih is my second attempt as the top layer was too thick on my first try.  So, this time around I decided to reduce the recipe for the top layer and it does look much better!  Taste wise, you may ask .... mmm, soft and not too sweet, good for breakfast or snack, any time of the day!

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

French Butter Cookies : Palets Bretons or Galette Bretonne ~ 法式奶油曲奇饼

  There are many names for this butter cookie.  Galette Bretonne, Palets Bretons, Sables or simply put French Butter Cookies which orginated from Brittany in the North-West of France where it's famous for its high quality salted butter.  In French,  Sable means Sandy and Breton refers to Bretagne region.  So literally it's Sandy Cookies from Brittany. They are somewhat like shortbread but richer because of the addition of egg yolk, flat, sweetish, a wee bit salty, crunchy and always with their signature criss-cross pattern on top.  These salted, golden cookies are very addictive and you simply can't stop at one and it's perfect for tea time.  As I prefer more bite to this cookie, I opted to use caster sugar and if you like to try with a different flavour of French Butter Cokies, do hop over to  Anncoo's  post.

Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies ~ 向日葵麦片曲奇饼

  These cookies are crunchy on the outside and a bit soft and chewy on the inside.  They are healthy cookies with sunflower seeds and whole grains giving a unique and delicious flavour.  I used instant oats in this recipe and they tend to soften the cookies somewhat but if you prefer them to be more crunchy when you consume the next day, just pop them into the oven toaster for a minute or two. You may like to add this onto your CNY to-do list of cookies.
