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 ^_^

Chinese New Year Delights 2013_round up (6)

Looking at the good respond given to my CNY delights event. If i could make the round up posting look more organize and interesting, look something like this , then it will be perfect! And if i can have it organized by category, easy for you to seach for the recipe..Also make it a permanent platform for peoples to look for CNY delights. But I know i can only dream now, because i don't know how to customize this and have to use blogger which has limit option when doing posting! Anyway, i will try to think a better option after CNY if i can think of one..
OK, lets check round up (6), this time i have increased the number of post from 20 posts to 30 posts, so you have more choices to try before CNY.

Ice Cream Cookies (Meringue cookies) 冰淇淋饼干

I am sure a lot of egg white left after you made CNY cookies like example pineapple tarts..Save the egg white and aged for at least one day, and you can made this ice cream cookies (or meringue cookies). You can easily seeing peoples selling this ice cream cookies in the morning or night market, and the price is quite expensive. Why not try to make yourself ?

Easy Sweet Sambal with Gula Melaka

You might thought that i did not like nasi lemak anymore since you did not see me cook nasi lemak so frequently. In fact, we are still enjoying nasi lemak, but we bought it from outside more often as we found a stall selling good nasi lemak near my area..
Anyway, yesterday i just cooked nasi lemak with this easy sambal recipe from my blogger friend Makcik Manggis and using the good gula melaka (palm sugar) given by Penang bloggers .

Earl Grey Macarons with Cherry Compote Buttercream

How was your New Year celeberation? For us, we went up to north Penang to join a year end countdown party which organized by Penang bloggers. We had a wonderful night. But I will post this event a bit later because there are too many pictures to sort out..I also brought them some homemade Siew Yok ( roast pork) and this macaron.
I was busy and keep doing macarons for the past two weeks. This is because some of batches I did were failed and with my never give up spirit, i keep experiment it and now I have more confidence to make nice macarons..Frankly, I don't appreciate macarons because they are too sweet for my liking, but  I like to make them because i feel proud when i have beautiful macarons ^_^ and also there is demand (my niece, my daughter and her friends all like macarons). I also like to admire their nice skirts..
