Haven't updated my blog about a month.
I was just too lazy and busy...
Too many things were getting on together, I can't cope with all of them at the same time.
So, not much time and energy left to update the blog.
I still keep on baking during weekend because of my mum who loves biscuits.
I tried this recipe from a chinese book I bought from a taiwanese website.
This is absolutely delicious!
It taste like the old traditional walnut cookies I used to have in Malaysia.
I think I'll bake more & replace the walnuts with cashew nuts or peanuts.
120g icing sugar
150g butter (unsalted)
230g plain flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg (slightly beaten)
some walnut halves
Bake half of the flours (110g plain flour + 25g cornstarch) at 180'C for 15 min. Let it cool down before use.
Sieve all the flours including the baked flours, icing sugar, soda & baking powder.
Add the butter & egg, blend everything into a soft dough.
Cover the dough with plastic film & let it rise at room temperature for 30 min.
Roll into small sized balls, place 5 cm apart, flatten slightly.
Brush some egg on top then slightly press one piece of walnut into the batter.
Bake at 170'C in preheated oven for 18 - 20 min, then switch off the heat & let it stand for 10 min before removing from the oven.
