Crunchy Butter cookies 牛油小脆饼


The other day my younger sister requested me to make some butter cookies for her..As she was craving for butter cookies that not too strong of buttery and milky aroma, and importantly not taste too sweet. She use to buy this type of butter cookies from a CNY cookie seller but this seller is no longer supplying cookies. Luckily her "Ah Chi " (mean sister in Hokkien dialect) knows how to make cookies for her now ^_^

I decided to try Blue little kitchen 蓝色小厨 recipe which use high protein flour and rice flour. I also decorated with dried cranberries instead the usual red cherries since i still have a can of this..
I also use economical butter (Bxx brand) instead of those good butter since my sister doesn't like too buttery cookies..Anyway, my sister said this butter cookie is difference from what she had tasted last time,,not look that yellowish, taste ok because not too sweet, but not melt-in-mouth as this cookie slightly crunch (I supposed due to addition of HP flour and rice flour)..After she described it further, then i only realized that she actually wanted those old fashioned butter cookies that look yellowish and full of custard aroma..Malay called this cookies as biskut bunga Dahlia, going to make again for her soon.
Nevertheless, if you are looking for a buttery and not over sweet butter cookies, this cookie is your choice..

Hi Sonia,
So so so lucky to have "Ah Chi" like you! Oh, butter cookies with high protein flour ~ no wonder this must be crunchy in taste. I got to try this one day! I like that plastic bag that you wrapped the cookies in with the word "Handmade". You bought a whole pack of this?

I think the cookies would be nice with a bit of crunch. They look really pretty and will brighten up the table during CNY.

如果牛油饼有太浓的custard味道,我很难接受咯。。。:p

I like these type of cookies and I personally tried baking it a couple of days ago. I find it better than those too buttery one. I find very soft and it can melt in my mouth actually. This is totally different from those Danish type butter cookies.

It's a shame you can't be my ah-chi..but can I make you my sho-be instead? To have a sho-be that cooks and bakes beautifully all the time is something that I'm also dreaming of:)
