My second CNY cookie is called Margarine Cookies. Its ‘real name’ is Butter Cookies but because I use margarine instead of butter… so the name like that lo hehehe
For this cookie I followed Elyn’s Butter Cookies recipe. I must say I love her blog.
This is the simplest cookies I’ve ever made (after shortbread). It was so simple that I made 4 batch of it. 1 batch yield about 35 pieces. My mom said 4 batches not enough, so I’ll make more later.
25g icing sugar
1/8 tsp vanilla essence
pinch of salt
70g plain flour
20g corn flour
Btw, my sis made pineapple tarts when I was having food poisoning.
Cream butter & sugar until well combined.
Add vanilla essence & pinch of salt. Continue to mix well.
Add flour & corn flour & mix again.
This is how my batter look like after adding all the ingredients.
I use this nozzle. Written in the pack for Kuih Semperit.
The directions ask for the use of piping bag. However I just use my hand & press down the batter (this nozzle is very deep). Easier. But need to try a few times before I get the pattern right.
Before bake. The pattern is pretty yeah? Decorated mine with chocolate chips.
Bake at 160 degree C for 15 minutes until lightly brown.
I like mine in darker golden. The pattern is blurry after baking.
I remember I ate these at my neighbors. They’re softer & smell more aromatic. This is still good. I’ve ‘curi-curi’ eaten a few already. YUMMY! Couldn’t seal the container yet since I’m making more.
You should try this if you’re a beginner.
