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!!

  1. Haha! Nice try. I would be disappointed with 1st attempt, not sure if I would try to bake. That is why baking is not my forte.

    What is next in your list!! Couldnt wait for youf next baking. Hope it is a success.

  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.

  5. Well, at least you can nibble on the bits from the jar. This brand is not one to buy!

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

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
