Cashew Nut Cookies 2012

These are my Cashew Nut Cookies for the coming Dragon Year. Same recipe, same cookie mould, as usual every year.


I always like to proudly say to people that you can never find anywhere selling Cashew Nut Cookies like mine, which has cashew nut as big as the cookie. I think the size of my cookie cutter does matter. Because it is small, you can put the whole cookie into your mouth and when you bite, you have a whole mouthful of cashew nut fragrance.

This session of photo-taking is exactly the same as the German Cookies. I have absolutely no creativity in food photography.

The two 2 types of hongbao are free from U-weekly magazine. See my mum's hongbao collection here.

These are another batch of German Cookies. The marbled pattern is more obvious and better than the last time.

Although I have a long list of CNY cookies recipes yet to try, I must stop CNY baking already since this weekend will be the reunion dinner and no more messing up the kitchen.

I'll be looking forward to all the posts about your reunion dishes recipes. And do submit to Aspiring Bakers. :)


Before I end, just a small note on something I'm not very happy about...

I woke up one day checking the internet, and visiting some of my favourite websites. There is this Singapore Happycall pan group which has a lot of recipes using the Happycall pan. Although I do not own one, I like to check up the recipes there. But I was surprised to find my Cashew Nut Cookies posted by one member. She copied my entire recipe but did not link to my page. As much as I welcome anyone to share and quite happy that people are reading and trying out my recipes, I appreciate if you can link back to me. Trust me, it doesn't feel too good to see that. I usually don't like to confront (or quite afraid to confront), but this I can't stop myself from writing out. I hope the other recipes posted in this group are not similarly copied from other blogs without giving credit.
