After last year experience with these cookies, I wasn’t intending to make any this year but a regular visit to my baking ingredients supply shop, I was surprise to see the ready grounded and it cost S$2.50 for 250gm! I think it’s more like I didn’t want to believe the cookie will taste that bad so I decide I shall give it a try again. One of my customer after knowing that my intention is to make these cookies, recommended me the recipe from Y3K New Year Cookies Book and share with me that she have reduce the sugar.
No regrets trying the recipe! The proportion is just right, it’s a little salty with the sweetness. It wasn’t crumbly except that I should have roll them slightly thicker. It’s very easy to prepare, I got everything measure and mixed up within 15 mins. It’s a good change from the usual treats!
