Second type of CNY cookies. Wanted to try this long ago. Finally did it this year! Yes the bak kwa cookies!
Got some Lim Chee Guan bak kwa at home this year. Cutting the bak kwa into small pieces is a bit troublesome though. Heh!
Easy recipe too. No need shaping, just roll into balls. I made 10g each. I like my cookies small so that I can just pop the whole thing into the mouth. :)
Super addictive! Yummy! I'm digging out all the goat year red packets. :)
