Crispy Coconut Cookies香酥椰丝饼










Apologise for MIA for so long, I have been super duper extremely busy with my work, not changing new job but new boss on board instead. Guess he is not satisfied with our previous management, thus restructuring everything, even including office look, we are not allowed to display any personal stuff on the desk e..g. photos or doll. Well, what to do, 新官上任三把火:P.

I have not been baking and cooking recently, since early Dec. I even gave it a pass of baking cupcakes give-away to my colleagues during Christmas which I do it every year. One of my colleague told me she even skip her breakfast just to keep her stomach empty for my cakes but end up I didn't bake anything, so paisei lol.

I did not intend to bake CNY cookies too, but I decided to bake some last min, as too many people asking, and also to support Fion's event. I mean last min, is really last min. I baked it on last Monday night as our office closure started from Wednesday, I have to pass the CNY cookies to some of my closed colleagues by Tuesday. The baking started from 10pm+ after I tucked dear son to sleep, until 4am next day. I slept for 2 hours and had to wake up to prepare my children to school and myself to work. Normally I will take a 15-20 mins powder nap during lunch time if I didn't have a good or sufficient sleep during previous night. However I can't nap that day as my ex colleague is back to Singapore so we have to meet him for lunch, so can imagine, most of the times in that day, I was like a zombie hahaha...

I have baked some CNY cookies using old recipes that I had shared in my blog before. However I would like to try new recipe, thus I did a quick ran through at my baking buddies' blogs. Immediately this cookies caught my eyes, I can  never resist coconut heeheehee...

Recipe adapted from 最爱的..and 新之味第27期(1/2月号)、Pg81


Ingredients A :
125g butter (soften at room temperature)
1 tbsp coconut oil
100g gula melaka (chopped in small pieces)
1 egg yolk

Ingredients B :
30g dessicated coconut
25g coconut powder

Ingredients C :
200g plain flour
50g potato starch
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

Method :
1. Beat the A to white and fluffy, add in B to mix well, then pour in C, mix well into soft dough.
2 Roll dough into balls of about 5g each. 
3. Place balls onto lined baking sheet about 5cm apart, then flatten each ball lightly with a fork.
4. Bake at pre-heated oven at 150C for about 20 minutes.
5. Cool the cookies on the wire rack and store in air-tight container.

Verdict?
These cookies are so fragrance while still baking in the oven, guess my neighbour still will be able to smell it even in dreamland lol. The cookies are full of gula melaka flavour, when munching the cookies, the dessicated coconut give a different dimension. Some tasted doesn't know is gula melaka but all given good comments especially the bites of the dessicated coconuts. I like these cookies a lot, same as my friends that love coconut, a keeper too :D
