My Almond Flakes Cookies Failed To IMPRESS

SINCE MY OVEN WAS OUT FROM THE STORE ROOM, I take the opportunity to try baking something new... Almond Flakes Cookies!  Initially both of us were pretty excited, everything needed was bought and laid on the table.
I was told to get this brand... Cost around RM29 if not mistaken...
Plus all these packets it came to a whooping RM60...
O
K!
Let's Get Started!!
Mistake, mistake... Uneven powder and too stingy with the almonds and others... 
FAILED ON FIRST TRIAL.... 
20/100 marks = E 
Red marks... Cham!!
Second Try.... No, not good enough too... 
Still insufficient almonds... 
I called SOS... then I was told I must be generous with the top fillings..
Otherwise will Fail, Fail and FAIL... 
Ok, OK.... more Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds and Sesame Please.... 
I think there is something wrong here...
Uneven heat?  
The edges are burnt at the edges... very "sayang"....
Imperfect..... How to sell? 
Have to go into own family's stomach, no choice.... 
LOL....
The END RESULT... 
For RM60, I think I can get at least 2 containers of 
PERFECT ALMOND FLAKES COOKIES outside.... 
But then... Never Try, Never Know, right?
Don't think I want to do this again.... 
Too sweet for my liking... 
*Ting*
I have something else in mind!!

  3. Nice try, Claire! I'm not good at baking too, so it's alright. Dropping by to wish you the best of 2017! xoxo

  4. Claire, I read somewhere that you have to use aluminium foil to line it first. Make sure the foil is a bit larger so you can actually cover the edges so it wont get burnt.

  6. Hahahah! Sometimes it's so much less hassle buying rather than baking. That's my motto where CNY cookies are concerned. ­čśť

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
