Nam Yee Cookie 南乳香脆饼

It's been a long time I've tasted Kai Zai Paeng (鸡仔饼), really miss that unique savory flavour :D I managed to find this recipe in a food magazine which is a simplified version of Kai Zai Paeng. It tasted more buttery and the spice flavour is milder than the traditional one. It is very crunchy and rather addictive too! Surprisingly even my two kiddos love the taste of this Nam Yee Cookie….

These are the main spices used in the cookies

Extracting garlic and shallots juice

Hi Peng,
We love eating kaichaipeng, and have not seen it in flower form before. A lovely change, and perfect for CNY!
Thanks for linking!
