During CNY, I know most of us like to make chocolate cookies, pineapple tarts, cashew nuts cookies, almond cookies, kuey bangkit, peanut cookies, butter cookies...and many others. They are very tasty , that it'd be very easy to forget the calories from the butter, sugar, nuts and chocolates.
Here I would like to share this recipe with you, adapted from 孟老师. This recipe includes a special ingredient that sets it on another class from the cookies mentioned above. It is crispy, a little buttery and amidst a sinful bite, one could enjoy a tinge of the scent from, amazingly, rose petals.
100 g icing sugar
200 g unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
360 g plain flour (I find the dough is quite wet, I put 400 g)
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
30 g dried rose flower
2 tablespoon cold water
~1) Beat icing sugar, butter and salt together until light and fluffy.
~2) Add in sifted flour, bicarbonate of soda and flower petals. Use hand gently mix and stir
until forms a dough.
~3) Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough about 0.5 cm thickness, use a heart shape cutter to cut out the shape. Place them on a lightly greased baking tray.
~4) Bake at top temperature at 170 degree C, bottom temperature at 160 degree C for 20 minutes.Then turn to top temperature at 160 degree C, bottom temperature at 150 degree C for
about 10 minutes.
~~ 1) Melt butter at room temperature.
~~ 2) Use hand s to crush the dried rose and remove the sepals, soak in cold water for 10 minutes.
~~ 3)No need to squeeze the soaked rose. Add directly to the mixture.
~~ 4)Do not bake over high temperature so that the rose retains its fragrance and colour.
