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!!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
