Butter Cookies (Ayu)


Jumaa Mubarak to all of you, my treasured visitors....

Mmm what did I do yesterday that I didn't update my blog? Oh yes, I wasn't THAT busy but it's just the internet line wasn't so good. Hubby had moved the modem or whatever you called it, to another spot, which makes my internet line downstairs like the Chipsmore cookies...now you see it now you don't! That puts me off but I am not complaining. It's better to have a chipsmore line than not having at all. Alhamdulillah syukur...

I didn't cook lunch yesterday but took mak and Syahmi out for a treat at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Fatin didn't want to tag along as she wanted to enjoy the comfort of her room before she goes back to boarding. So we just bought for her to enjoy it at home. Mak and Syahmi really enjoyed their meals. I didn't eat because I just had some leftovers Roti John from the pasar malam the day before.

In the evening, I made some tart casings for Friday's order and tried this cookies recipe as well. When I read how Ayu's kids enjoyed the cookies, I just thought I had to try it out myself. Alhamdulillah, my family likes them and mak's comment was... the cookies are nice and crunchy! So thanks a bunch to Ayu for sharing this recipe with us and allow me to re-post the recipe here for my future reference and for the reading pleasure of my visitors...




Butter Cookies Ayu

BUTTER COOKIES

Ingredients :

75g butter
50g castor sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
150g cake flour (remove 1 tablespoon)
a pinch of baking powder (I used 1/8 teaspoon)
1 tablespoon milk powder

1 egg white
Dry Demerara sugar for sprinkling (I don't have this, instead, I used colored sugar. Please check Note #4)

Method :

1. Cream butter, sugar and salt till pale and fluffy.
2. Add in egg yolk and vanilla. Beat till well incorporated.
3. Sieve in the flour, baking powder and milk powder into the creamed mixture till well combined. Mixture will be breadcrumbs like and will form dough easily. Put dough into a plastic bag and roll it into a flat sheet. Chill in the fridge till harden before cutting out the cookie.
4. Cut out the cookie with cutter.
5. Brush on some egg white and sprinkle dry demerara sugar on the surface.
6. Bake on a lined tray at 180C for 10 minutes. (I used fan oven and baked the cookies at 150 C for 20 minutes.


Butter Cookies Ayu


Notes:-
1. The sprinkling of the dry demerara sugar is optional. If you omit this step, please increase sugar to 60g.
2. Please really only use a pinch of baking powder as you dont want the cookie to be out of shape when it is baking in the oven.
3. Chill the dough again if it is too soft to be cut out
4. For the colored sugar, I placed a spoonful of coarse sugar into a small container. Drop a tint of color onto it. Place the lid and shake.




The cutter that I had used. I bought mine when we went to South Africa long time ago.


Try visiting Gina's Online Shoppe and see what she has in her store. I thought I saw this similar cookie cutter there. If it's out of stock, perhaps you could place and order. All the best!

    ♥LOVE2COOK♥ :

    ros@JMC :
    Waalaikumussalam Ros. Alhamdulillah mama sihat-sihat je.. Infact, badan pun terlalu sihat, nak kena turunkan berat gak ni! Hahaha... Tu la, masa belum ada cutter ni, bila tengok kawan kat Malawi tu guna, macam meroyan je. Bila dah ada sendiri... barulah lega rasanya! Hahaha... Haru betul!

    Ayu :
    Waalaikumussalam Ayu. Thanks ye sudi ke mari. Actually kat Malawi, ada jual gula yang berwarna warni tu. Inspired by that colored sugar, mama cubalah modify sendiri... Jadilah juga, walaupun sipi sipi je. Hahaha... Anyway, yes, my family likes it. Thank ye Ayu sebab sudi share resepi. Yup, I was in South Africa that time, selalu transit on the way balik Malaysia for holiday, so belilah terus di sana...

    Yat Maria :
    Waalaikumussalam Yat. Belum sempat boh dalam tin, biskut dah habis, cemana tuh!

  14. ♥peachkins♥ :
    The taste is yummy as well. That colored sugar is not what I really wanted actually. If only I could find lumps of sugar which are slightly bigger, than it'll be really nice. But yeah, better that than nothing huh...

    Am (Flora Heights) :
    Ha ah Am, acuan, loyang dan segala mak nenek benda baking ma ni, merata marinya. Kalau tak beli sendiri pun, kawan-kawan tolong belikan. Tapi cuba browse website Kitchen Capers ni. Kalau cookie cutter tu out of stock, mungkin Am boleh order dengan Gina ye...

    Delilah's Deli :
    Waalaikumussalam Delilah. Oh kenapa, sebelum ni tak dapat tengok ke? Mmm server kot...

    JEFFIEMA :
    Waalaikumussalam. Untuk versi Malay, harap dapat ke entry Butter Cookies Ayu ye sebab Ayu ada explain in detail siap dengan gambar sekali.

    ICook4Fun :
    Of course! When I first saw what my friend had, back then in Malawi, I wasn't at ease till I got mine! Haha... just like a little child nagging for a toy! Hahahaha...

    Ummi :
    Cookie ada tapi tak mo bagi sebab yang ada pun ciput! Tak cukup untuk kami nak makan! Biar tamak, asal bahagia...Hahaha...
    Ha ah, dah jual dah radio tu... takut nanti, semua yang datang sini, pakai baju hitam, berkabung! :P:P:P

    hana :
    Waalaikumussalam Hana.... tu arr... nyesal kemudian, meroyanlah dulu yek... ahakss.. Sib baik tak ada, kot ada, sah sah, esok lusa keluar je entry cookie shape pretzel kat blog Hana... hihihi.. ada tak bunyi dengki tu? Muahahhaa....

  26. I love to prepare some recipe with potatoes although i know that a person can gain weight if eat potatoes frequently, but i can´t deny that i really like the flavor, most of all when is combine it with some ingredients. Simply delicous. And when i cook, my husband usually is very happy.
    Actually i was looking information about how tobuy viagra but i reached this blog, i really enjoyed reading.
