Fever Continues.....

I'm still in the mood of baking even though I've been very STRESSED out at work GRRRRRRRRRRR......H
Every evening, I looked forward to going home to experiment on my baking. It's a form of de-stress and so therapeutic for me. This is my first time baking Chinese New Year cookies and I'm hooked onto baking the Sugi cookies. Even my ever so fussy Mummy gave me her thumbs up for my cookies and especially my kuih bangkits. I'm so happy...... Yipee!

Another First Attempt

I'm hooked onto the baking fever and tried yet another first attempt with Kueh Bangkit, from Florence's recipe. Though alittle tedious with the baking of the flour but it's worth the effort. I never knew that Kueh Bangkit could be so easy and I'm going to bake yet another batch next week for Chinese New Year.

Kueh Bangkit from Florence's Recipe

225g tapioca flour
3 pcs Pandan leaves (cut into 4 inches pieces)
30g margarine
55g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
75ml – 90ml coconut milk

1. Bake the flour with dry and cut up pandan leaves at 160C for 25 - 30 minutes and stirring every 10 minutes.
2. Set aside, cool completely before using.
3. Cream margarine with sugar and yolk till sugar dissolves.
4. Add in 75ml coconut milk and mix well.
5. Add flour to mix till a non-sticky dough is formed. If dough is too dry, add more coconut milk but add
1 tsp at a time, otherwise, dough may be too sticky.
6. Roll dough on a floured table and use cookie cutters to cut into shapes.
7. Baked on lined tray in preheated oven at 170C for 20 to 25 mins.
8. Remove to cool completely before storing in air tight jar.

Baking Frenzy

I'm in the mood of baking for Chinese New Year cookies so I tried my hands at Sugee cookies. I was so pleased with my first attempt as I followed the recipe to the T. It was so simple that I really enjoyed baking them as the wonderful aroma of the Sugee cookies baking in my oven filled the whole house and even to my neighbours'.... hee hee.....
Hubby dear and colleagues enjoyed my Sugee cookies.

Do give it a try and here's the recipe from QBB
