Rainbow Crystal Cookies

Pretty little melts-in-the-mouth cookies :D Suppose to roll the cookie in sugar before baking, but run out of sugar!! just enough sugar to bake this batch of cookies >o< Therefore I dust some icing sugar over the cookies after baking :D Should call them rainbow snow cookies instead :D :D

Notice the little black specks in the cookies?? they are natural vanilla seeds from the pure vanilla bean paste I've used :D

My newly bottle of Pure Vanilla Paste :D

  • 120gm butter
  • 40gm shortening
  • 80gm sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla paste
  • 210gm plain flour
  • 40gm custard powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp soy powder
  • 50gm ground almond
  • pink colouring
  • orange colouring
  1. Sift flour, custard powder, baking powder, soy powder & almond powder. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter, shortening & sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla paste till combined.
  3. Fold in flour mixture in batches until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Divide dough into 3 portions. Colour 1 portion with pink colour and 1 portion with orange colouring.
  5. Pinch 3 different coloured dough and shape into round. Toss it with sugar. Place in a paper cup.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 20 mins.

Really v attractive!

Curious, is vanilla paste the same as extract? In terms of amount, can it directly substitute? :)

hanushi...vanilla paste seems to be more natural compare to extract unless the pdt indicate is pure extract no artificial flavours added. I substitute directly 1 tsp essence = 1 tsp paste This btl cost me $22+ so I must use sparingly >.<

Thanks Peng. I suspect as much that you bought it from there. Was trying to see if there's a more convenient location that sells this good stuff :)
