Biskut Dahlia

To sleep or not to sleep... ....normally that question only require very little and almost zero thinking and consideration from me. The answer will always be TO SLEEP. But out of the norm, yesterday, I had a hard time agreeing to myself with that TO SLEEP answer. Thanks to these two ladies, Mak Lang and Jid who managed to reverse the answer to NOT TO SLEEP! I thought of taking a short (boleh percaya ke short! Hehehe...paling short pun, 1 jam kot...hihihi) nap around 7 am. Syahmi was sleeping downstairs after sehri and the way he slept, made me really wanted to join him. Gosh, how I have to fight the feeling (wah...dah macam lagu ler plak bunyinya... can't fight the feeling.. hihihi)! Both these ladies kept chatting with me until it was just too late to take a nap! Thank you ladies...jasa-jasamu ku kenang! Hahaha....
But actually, I never regretted with that decision. I managed to finish the house chores in good time and even cooked for Iftaar, much much earlier than usual. Infact I managed to bake two cookies, one of which is my daring experiment! Will share the recipes with you guys soon, not to worry. And as a reward to my sacrifice, I got to go galavanting with dear hubby in the evening.... you know how much I love to go for a ride! Hahaha...macam budak kecik je....

As mentioned, one of the cookies that I've just tried yesterday came from the ever famous cyber chef Che Mat Gebu's Blog . According to Mat, this recipe was from Norazie RN Thank you so much to Norazie and Mat for sharing this lovely Biskut Dahlia recipe. Only thing, mine are not as lovely as yours. Note to Mat : You must have forgotten to paste the 'mandrem' you used when baking those lovely cookies of yours.... hahahaha..... Here's the recipe if anyone care to try it for this Eid.....



300 g butter
140 g icing sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon rose essence
240 g flour*
100 g cornflour*
160 g custard flour* (*sift together)
Red cherries

Method :

1. Cream butter and icing sugar. Add in egg yolks and rose essence. Continue beating.
2. Add in sifted flour a little at a time until a soft dough is formed.
3. Place a bit of dough into the mould and press onto the baking tray, lined with greaseproof paper. Place a piece of cherry on top.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 175 C for 15 to 20 minutes.
5. Leave to cool before removing from the tray. Keep in an airtight container.


  1. That biscuit looks absolutely gorgeous!!But isn't a lot of butter?

  2. dahlia looks just fine to dahlia collapsed everytime...penyek je.seronoknye boleh tidur ye...mak teh kalu tidoq kalu,gerenti sakit kepala.

  3. mama,

  7. Shabs :
    Thank you for your kind words Shabs and thanks for visiting. The recipe requires a lot of butter because it needs to be soft enough to go through the mould.

    MAK TEH :
    Maybe Mak Teh punya Dahlia's dough is a bit too soft tak? That's why it cannot hold the shape. Kita pun kadang-kadang kalau tidur, sakit kepala juga, tapi kalau dah ngantuk, tidur aje!

    Fiza Nordin :
    Mama tak guna nozel. Mama guna acuan Dahlia.

    MAK TEH :
    Lor, ada peminat Hangman gak ye.... next time round, try these letters first... R, S, T, L, N, E *wink wink*

    Uncle Lee :

  20. Salt N Turmeric :
    Thousand apologies Farina. Only now that I managed to edit the photos as you've requested. Lambat betul mama ni... That's the spirit girl... kalau tak jadi, cuba dan cuba lagi!

    fadelicouscakes :
    Waalaikumussalam dear. Terima kasih kerana sudi menegur mama this time ya. Dahlia ni adik beradik samperit juga, cuma shape je lain. Mungkin adunan tu terlalu lembik agaknya, tu sebab bila bakar, ianya meleper. Tak apa, cuba dah terus mencuba, insyaAllah berjaya juga nanti...

  21. Hey are you a professional journalist? This article is very well written, as compared to most other blogs i saw today….
    anyhow thanks for the good read!

  22. Интересно написано....но многое остается непонятнымb

  23. Интересно написано....но многое остается непонятнымb

  24. salam mama... saya aru try buat biskut ni buat pertama kali.. unfortunately ia jadi flat bila saya bakar.. so if this happen, leh saya tambah tepung gandum lagi tak.. tq mama

  25. Salam Mama,

    Dah try this resipi tadi. Terlalu lembik so kena tambah 1/4 cup tepung gandum and 1 tbsp corn flour. Sedap!!...Mungkin pasal tempat dan tepung yang say a guna berlainan so kena adjust sikit. Tapi tetap sedap! Terima ksih.:)
