Long time no baking post already, so here's one, which I baked last weekend. There were two oranges in the fridge. A big chunk of butter and
miserable very little icing sugar left.
So, what else? Butter cookies! The 1,2,3 recipe. Yay! 100g sugar+200g butter+300g flour makes the best melt-in-the-mouth butter cookies recipe! Oh and zest from approximately 1.5 oranges. Optional, but my cookies, my sukak, my like! That's all you need, really! But makesure you use good quality butter, baru "heong" (fragrant). I used Emborg, if you want to know.
I mixed all ingredients with my hand. Rolled them into balls. Pressed down some patterns with a fork.
Baked at 180 degrees for about 25 minutes. These was the first batch.
Then second batch. Something wrong with the lighting?
This recipe makes about 50 pieces cookies. If you have a bigger oven and also the time, you can shape it smaller (then bake in 2 batches), and you will have > 50 pieces.
Not self praising, but hubby ate >10 pieces the moment I took them out from the oven. If hubby eats my cookies, means those are good I tell you. He doesn't like sweet stuffs like cookies/cakes, and normally won't touch more than 2 pieces nomatter how hard I begged. But this time, wow. Really, I was like, wow.
