Ginger Nut Cookies ~ 姜饼曲奇


Ginger Nut biscuits have a unique blend of taste, sweet and spicy at the same time and I made my version of Ginger Nut cookies with crushed Arnotts Ginger Nut biscuits.  Ginger Nut biscuit on its own is a hard biscuit and needs to be dunked in milk to soften and enjoy it.  No mixer is required in this recipe and the cookies can be made in a relative short time.  This cookie is crunchy at the sides and slightly chewy in the centre.  You can also make this cookie with other biscuits like Biscoff or Digestive biscuits.

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.

Durian Butter Cake ~ 榴莲牛油蛋糕

  It's the durian season again and I'm sharing with you a simple yet fragrant Durian Butter Cake.  This recipe does not use the traditional butter totally, in fact there is oil too.  Liquid oil tends to make the cake softer and stays moist longer as it does not solidify at room temperature.  This cake is soft and moist with a tinge of durian flavour and aroma.  A breakfast or Tea time snack for durian lovers.
