Ghee balls (cookies) ~ CNY 2011

Ghee balls

This is a type of CNY cookies that I wanted to try long time ago. Since I was in the rush to make 2011 CNY cookie on the last minutes, this cookie is the best choice since it needs very simple ingredients and easy to make too.

















I was adapted the recipe from Jane's corner..Thanks to Jane!

I like having ghee cookies! In older days, the Chinese seldom make these. So, we normally have to wait till Deepavali for our neighbours sending over the cookies. haha.... Boy, aren't we lucky now! Thanks for sharing.
Hope you're having a sweet & loving day. Happy Belated Valentine's Day!
Love, Kristy
p/s hope your sis is alright! I'm sure she'll thought of her beloved hubby on this day. Take care.
