CNY 2015 五福临门 Prosperity Cookies Platter

There are couple interesting cookie that caught my attention and I'm so tempted to try them out but I do want to be too ambitious this year. So I've finalised with this year CNY cookie baking, hereby presenting my five selection of cookies which I named them '五福临门' 饼干拼盘 Prosperity Cookie sPlatter! Nice? Adding on to the pineapple tarts were Melting Moments and German Cookies (Chicken Floss Seaweed).

German Cookies (Chicken Floss Seaweed) 

I can't wait to attempt this savoury version of German Cookies when I saw Cheryl of Baking Tai Tai's creation! Instead of using Korean seaweed as indicated in the original recipe, I've substitute it with crispy seaweed and it turned out well too. Something unique compare to the usual sweet cookies, thumbs up by my food tasters :D I've baked it rather small so that the kids can just pop the whole cookie into their mouth without creating any mess :D

Recipe ref : Baking Tai Tai

  • 50gm icing sugar, sifted
  • 250gm potato starch
  • 160gm cake flour

Melting Moments

Actually this recipe has been hiding in my blog draft for many many years and I've forgotten where I got it from! This cookies tasted so good, melty and buttery that my kids could not get enough of it! I've packed some for gifting and balanced one are disappearing too fast from my cookie jar though I've already made a second batch! Looks like I may need to bake another tray soon.....
