These are the cookies I made for Chinese New Year. I'm so sorry that I din't take pictures of each cookies. I'm super busy with house cleaning, baking, cooking & kids. I felt tiring that few weeks. Everything comes non-stop in this 2 months.

I'm a traditional woman. Hahaha... I will bake the same cookies I like every year. There were Chocolate Chips Almond Cookies & Hap Tou Sou.

And also I will try out some new recipes. The 1st cookie I tried was Red Tea Almond Cookies adapted by Little Cookies Earn BIG $ from Coco Kong. It taste normal cookies, not very special. But some of my friends' feedback is.. it taste bitter in the mouth after eating. I think is because of the baking soda. To me, it's fine. But today my hubby's cousin came, he likes it so much.. hahaa :P

Here's the recipe :
  • 3 sachets of red tea ( lipton )
  • 75ml hot water
  • 100g butter
  • 80 g icing sugar ( reduced )
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda ( can be avoided if you don't like the taste )
  • 100g almond flakes
  1. Preheat oven to 140c.
  2. Steep red tea with hot water for 5 minutes. Keep tea & residue as needed.
  3. Cream butter & icing sugar until creamy. Add in sieved flour, baking powder, almond, tea & residue.
  4. Use a teaspoon , place small mounds of mixture on lined baking trays. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until pale golden.
The 2nd cookie is Cranberry Cornflake Cookies. It also from the book i mentioned above. Love the cranberries, it taste abit sour & sweet. But it's not very special cookies. Here's the recipe :
A :
  • 120g butter
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
B :
  • 135g plain flour ( sieved )
  • 30g butterfly brand cornflour
  • 100g cornflakes ( crushed )
  • 80g dried cranberries
  1. Preheat oven to 140c.
  2. Cream ingredient ( A ) until smooth. Fold in ingredient ( B ), mix well.
  3. Scale at 7 grams each & place into small paper cups. Arrange on baking tray.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 20-30 minutes until pale golden.

Wow..... Am I lost here? I think so.... I'm here since last year. Hahahaa... sound very long long ago, but it was just few months ago.

Yes, I'm back to my blog from my last year end holidays :D I had a wonderful & enjoyable trip to Korea. The day I'm back is quite near to Christmas, so I din't plan to have any party. I just had a buffet dinner with my hubby & kids :D

After that will be New Year Eve, we had a potluck countdown at my friend's house. I baked my own recipe chicken wings & drummets ( Rosemary Garlic Chicken Wings )

I just used whatever left ingredients in my fridge to marinate it :D It taste super yummy... love it !!!!

I marinated with garlic powder, dried rosemary leaves & some salt :D Bake for 15-20 minutes or till golden brown.

The next celebration will be Chinese New Year! Yes, time to bake cookies again :P What I had baked? Stay tune to my next post..... heehee :D
