Dahlia cookies (Old fashioned custard butter cookies) 卡士达牛油饼干

Finally i managed to make this custard butter cookie that suit to my sister's demand. What was her demand?  less buttery, less sweet, not strong custard taste, still taste light and almost melt-in-mouth, hahaha, very demanding !!
Once i done with this cookies, my husband just came back for lunch, and he could not stop eating this cookie after the first bite..I was wondering got so good mer, or he just wanted to please me and make me happy, hahaha..

Stir fried Roast Pork with Garlic 蒜香烧肉

Today I am going to have 3 posts, one savoury dish, one sweet cookies and final round up & giveaway results of CNY delights event, what a busy day!
At first, i thought to delay this post and post it after the event..But yesterday i saw Angel also cooked the similar dish (she used raw belly pork), and i decided to share this super simple dish using leftover roast pork and i would like this dish to include in the round up.
Now my homemade crispy roast pork 脆皮烧肉 is very famous among my family and friends, hehehe..My SIL (my husband's elder sister) who left few teeth also waiting for me to bring my roast pork when we visit her on the CNY day ^_^

Poon Choi ( Big Bowl Feast ) 蛇全十美 ~ 盆菜

I have never tasted Poon Choi before , after googled and checked few websites, i was very braved to prepare this Poon Choi for Re-union dinner. From what i learnt, this big bowl feast is a one-pot dish that full of premium delicacies as to symbloises prosperity and abundance. My idea was simply to assemble all dishes that i usually prepared for re-union dinner (with adding few new dishes) into one-pot..Usually the wet ingredients will be placed at the bottom whereas those dry ingredients to place on the top..I admit mine has the Poon Choi look but don't think it taste the same like those Poon Choi served in the restaurants or Poon Choi from origin Hong Kong.

Old Fashioned Chinese Peanut Cookies 花生饼

After Pai Tin Kong (CNY day 9) , as a Hokkien I considered i have almost done with CNY celebration. Anyway i still have few plans till CNY day 15 on this coming Sunday..To my Chinese bloggers and readers, how was your CNY celebration? I guess everyone must be very busy visiting friends and relatives, attending lunch or dinner and etc..me too either.. In fact, i have no time to on my PC to update my blog, visit other blogs and reply reader's questions, even my kedai runcit (shop) have to temporary tutup kedai (close shop), ^_^..
Ok, come back to this peanut cookies, it was requested by my hubby on the last minutes before re-union dinner. I remembered my mom did this cookies when we were young, so I called to my mom to check with her the recipe, as usual, i got a agak-agak (estimation) recipe..what i remembered she told me to use equal bowl of peanuts and flour (it doesn't meant it is equal in weight) and one important ingredient is pork lard oil..this is the key ingredient to make it tasty!!
I again almost want to cry after tasted my first peanut cookies, it was so so good, very nice peanut aroma and simply melt-in-mouth, recall my childhood memory, so nostalgia !!

My best melt-in-mouth Pineapple tarts (enclosed version) 最酥的凤梨酥

I would said pineapple tarts rank number 1 among all CNY cookies, do you agree?
As a Hokkien, we called pineapple as "Ong Lai", means bring good luck. So every CNY, i must bake some pineapple tarts, if not bake some, i afraid our "Ong" will not come, hehehe..

Honeycomb Cookies (Kuih Rose/Loyang) 蜂窝饼

Phew! i spent the whole afternoon to use these three kuih loyang moulds to make my 1st kuih loyang..or kuih ros, and recently i found another name called kuih goyang. Whatever how you like to call it, this honeycomb cookies is Malaysians all races favourite snack and we especailly like to serve it in all major festive celebrations. This traditional cookies has a sweet taste and scent coming from the use of rich coconut milk. Our member Malay like to flavour with rose essence or vanilla while the Chinese are like to adding sesame seeds...
