Melting Moments - CNY 2016


Melting Moments make a perfect gift not only for X'mas but for other festive occasions as well. They can come in many variations.  Some are piped out into rosettes and a cherry is placed on top, some are sandwiched with cream of various flavours while some are just plain or with lemon zest and served with a dusting of icing sugar. I took the easy way out and opted for the latter :)








True to its name, these cookies really crumble and melt in your mouth, so why not give it another name ... 'Crumbling Moments'!

  2. Hi Soke Hah, I'm almost done for CNY 2016 cookies, so I'll bookmarked this for the next round. Looks so sweet with the icing sugar. I remembered one year when I baked chocolate cookies with a dusting of icing sugar like this and my sis told me that the cookies had turned moldy. Luckily she told me before discarding them. Since then, I dare not dust my cookies with icing sugar. What a joke.

    1. Ha, ha, the icing sugar can be misleading esp to those who seldom bakes.

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.

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.
