Hi,
Do you have to chill the butter to harden it before you beat with the sugar?

Jean

Thanks.

Anonymous said...

Try this cookies...that's really nice....but couldn't cut in shape after an hrs from fridge...which ingredient need to add or increase if I wanna to cut in shape? Tx

Always said...

I just tried this recipe. Really very nice. But I cannot pipe as nice as yours. Did u pipe double layer? Mine is very thin.
A lot of hard washing to do becoz of butter.

teo ai li said...

Hi, I have problem rolling them into balls. The batter is so sticky that they stick to my fingers. What could be the problem? Please help me because I am making them for CNY. Thanks and appreciate it!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Hi Teo, you have to pipe it out but not roll them .. Fill the dough into piping bag that filled with large tip.

teo ai li said...

Thank you for being prompt. I thought rolling them into balls are easier and faster and also, I am not good with piping. Anyway, thanks for coming to my help! Appreciate it!

Hi. Do u use salted or unsalted butter?

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Phil, I use salted

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

Thank you for the recipe. I have tried it and the cookies are very yummy...and they melted in the mouth! However, my cookies didn't hold their shape after baking...they flattened out. Did I overbeat the butter? Appreciate your advice!


Florence

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Florence, try to bake at the lower rack and low temp 150-160 C. The temperature mentioned in my recipe was referring to my old convention cum microwave oven..it might not suite to the normal oven..

Phil Lim said...

Thank u for your reply. Earlier, Without waiting for your reply, I tried with unsalted butter. The cookies were melt-in-the-mouth good. Will try it with salted butter to taste the difference.

Anonymous said...

Thank you, Sonia. Will definitely try again!

Happy Chinese New Year to you and your family!

Kelsy Liau said...
