Biskut Coklat M&M's


Ingredients :

1 egg
200 g butter
150 g cornflour
50 g grounded almonds
150 g icing sugar
200 g flour
80 g Optima flour
enough M&M chocolates for decoration
chopped almonds

Method :

1. Cream sugar and butter then add egg.
2. Add in the sifted dry ingredients : flour, Optima flour and cornflour. Add in the grounded and chopped almonds and mix well.
3. Roll into small balls. Press an M&M chocolate on top.
4. Place on a greased floured baking tray, or layer the tray with greaseproof paper, leaving enough room between them as they expand.
5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 170 C.

Note :

1. I used margarine.
2. I don't have Optima flour so I used 280g cake flour for the (200g flour + 80g Optima flour).
3. Other than M&M, I decorate the cookies with Smarties as well.
4. My cookies didn't expand much. I am not sure whether it's because I used cake flour and didn't add baking powder or for other reason. If Mr Rozzan can clarify this, I'd appreciate it very much. But nevertheless, the taste is nice and Fatin loved it! The only thing is, she has to peel off the M&M chocolates out of the cookies as she is allergic to colors especially in Smarties.
Thank you to Bro Rozzan for sharing this recipe with us...

Oh me oh my!!! I really took my time to collect all the awards that were passed to me. I am so sorry my dears. It doesn't mean that I don't appreciate them. God knows how thrilled and excited I am to receive them. But time is just not on my side lately. I had been busy...doing what? I am not so sure of! Hahaha... Anyway, here are all the three awards from these three lovely ladies. Thank you for always remembering me... May God bless you all....

2 cups Atta flour (I used the mixed Atta flour ~ brown & white)
1 tablespoon Ghee/Butter/Margarine (I used margarine)
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Enough water
Salt ~ optional
Extra margarine

Method :

1. Place Atta flour in a bowl.
2. Rub in a tablespoon of Ghee/Butter/Margarine
3. Add water bit by bit until it becomes a soft dough and doesn't stick to the hand.
4. Add the cooking oil into the dough and knead till well combined.
5. The bread taste better if made few hours ahead. Make as many small balls as you can, as big as golf ball, flatten it and roll out.
6. Heat a non stick flat pan till really hot.
7. Before placing the bread on the pan, remove access flour, if any.
8. When you see the color of the bread changes to slightly darker color, turn over the other side. Gently, press the sides of the bread with a kitchen paper or a clean towel. Let the bread puffs up, then flip over, back to the first side.
9. Once cooked, remove from heat and brush a bit of margarine on top.

Note from Tillingtan :
Also when press, make sure you press on the sides first as it will encourrage the bread to puff up.
