My Macadamia Nuts Butter Cookies

COOKIES MODE IS ON... 

Friday night, I spent some time looking for butter cookies recipe, this time I want real crunchy cookies.  Yes, I did have the secret recipe my SIL gave me last time and and you know what, I couldn't find it, I guess I must have deleted the photo of the recipe she sent to me and I do not want to ask her again.  So "malu-ing" shy to ask her for the recipe again.  (Tai Soe, if you are reading this, sorry ya!  I misplaced your recipe again!)

This time all is not lost for I have this faithful reader called Phong Hong Bakes And Cooks who simply loves to bake cookies!  It was always mouth watering for me just by looking at her cookies (that time I did not have an oven yet) and now I do, I must do what she did!  Oh by the way, PH, if you are reading this, it has been quite a while since you last baked cookies, right?  LOL.... I just have to search in her blog "butter cookies" and her mouth-watering cookies all appeared before my eyes.  I had a hard time choosing which to start with... and I ended up with this post called "My Giant Pecan Chocolate Chips Cookies!"

I did not have Pecan nor Chocolate Chips and I replaced them with Macadamia Nuts instead.  Really, the steps are simple and the outcome of the cookies?  Simply the best of the best!  I gave some to my picky friend who rarely compliments, by the way...  and the feedback was... "Hey, not bad wor.... " and asked for more... that was enough for encouragement, thanks to PH.... and now I want to share her recipe with you....

Phong Hong's original recipe:

Ingredients :
- 125g butter, softened
- 225g self-raising flour
- 100g brown sugar  (I reduced to 70gm)
- 100g chocolate chips  (omitted)
- 125g roasted pecans, chopped  (I used 125g of macadamia nuts, chopped into halves)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Method :
1. Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy.
2. Add vanilla extract and egg and continue to beat until well incorporated.
3. Using a spatula (or continue with your mixer) fold in the flour and mix to form a dough.
4. Fold in chocolate chips and chopped pecans.
5. Using an ice cream scoop (I used a big one), scoop dough onto a lined baking tray. Flatten the dough a little using ad fork and bake at 160C for about 18 minutes or more until browned.
6. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Here goes:
After mixing everything.... 
Two trays.... 
One big and one small tray....
The aroma fills the house...
After 20 minutes or so....
Couldn't wait to try....
Turned out so well..
I mean the crunchiness....
Just nice ... not hard at all.... 
Could fill up two tubs of the tupperware....
And one tub already going to finish.... 
Now I know which blog to go to for Cookies!!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
