☆Sugee Cookies 苏芝奶酥饼☆

When I was young, I used to buy a Sugee cookie whenever I passed by a "mama" stall. These sugee cookies were delicious. I loved the crunchiness and the taste of them.


This was my first time baking these cookies and I had baked them in 3 different ways and duration to see which cookie fitted well in my taste bud.


The big round one were rolled into a ball and flatten. The cookies came out very crispy but somehow lack of the Sugee cookies from the "mama" stall.


The small ones were rolled into a ball and place onto the baking tray without flattening. 2 different colors as one was baked slightly longer than the other. This time round, these small cookies did had the similar ones from the "mama" stall. Except that my cookies were probably 1 or 2 times smaller in sizes.


Regardless of any shapes and sizes, these Sugee Cookies were absolutely delicious, and I was glad that the girls liked them as well.

Perhaps next time I will try to make them bigger like the ones that were sold in the "mama" stall. :P


Instead of using ghee, I had used salted butter to bake these cookies.

Creamy Green Bean Soup

How about having a bowl of creamy green bean soup instead of the usual soupy ones?

Well, I'm kinda in between the soupy and the creamy ones, but either one goes well for me.

So how about yourself?


Hubby commented that these creamy ones tasted better than the usual soupy ones. Perhaps he preferred more "beans" in his dessert.

Nevertheless, both hubby and Nic enjoyed this creamy green bean soup, and I was glad it hadn't been gone a waste.


Join me in a bowl of Creamy Green Bean Soup Porridge?

Rum Sugee Cupcakes

To my surprise, this Sugee Cupcakes were a delish and they were so soft and fluffy!!!


The texture was utterly cottony soft, the girls and myself loved it very much. But you might find a little coarse bit texture of the sugee (semolina), otherwise, everything about this Sugee Cupcakes were fantastic!


So next one will be Sugee Cookies, love the crunchiness of the Sugee Cookies I used to buy from the Indian shops..... 

Keep track if you are keen :)

▪ Danish Butter Cookies ▪

I like my danish cookies with sugar..

So did my hubby... 
Because his first question was when he saw this cookies, "Where are the ones with the sugar???"



These ain't exactly the danish butter cookies we would get from the usual tins we buy from the shop but they were as great...

Not only were the ingredients simplified, the cookie batter was easily piped out too. And little Mimi was trying to pipe out. She was having fun doing so.


So even though these Danish Butter Cookies ain't similar to the usual ones, you can bet that they were definitely better being home baked.

And Mimi couldn't help herself with these cookies once they were cooled.
