New Home ~ Happy Chinese New Year 2011 ~ Cookies & Dishes

After several months of hectic schedule, moving house, school open, help my sister on her new house and her kids school transfer & etc, finally i able to spare some time to have a short update of my blog about Chinese New Year.


CNY cookies

I managed to bake 3 type of cookies on the last 2 days before CNY.

Crispy coconut cookies

This is a type of cookie that I wanted to learn how to bake after i tried it at my brother-in-law house last CNY. After I failed to obtain the right recipe, I created myself this cookie. We love this cookie, cripsy and full of coconut aroma, will share the recipe later.

I was adapted this recipe from Jane's corner and this is a type of cookies that I wanted to bake long time ago.

Baking ghee cookies using my brand new Teka oven !!
