On my previous post on Catching Up, I did not indicate where I got the recipes from due to my "urgency" to post up my activities. Now is the time to "give credit when credit is due!" ;)

1. Kueh Makmur: Recipe from Violet Oon's website. As I didn't want to buy any Ghee that moment, I tried a recipe without using any ghee. The result was, it's not as fragrant as those using ghee. I probably baked too long, the crust as a bit too hard. The next recipe I want to try will be from Honey Bee Sweets.

2. Pineapple Tarts: The crust recipe was shared by a colleague. So I can't post them here. However, I did try the recipe from Pineapple Tarts Blog. The dough is very very wet, but very nice as it's melt-in-the-mouth kind.

3. Valrhona Triple Chewy Chocolate Cookies: This is what I renamed it from Eat and Be Happy's blog. As I used Valrhona cocoa powder, I gave "credit" to Valrhona. These cookies have become my children's favourite. They have been bugging me to eat these after I baked. I had to reject them most of the time as it was used as a complimentary gift to my "customers". Finally, all cookies delivered, there were quite a number of cookies left, and they were free to consume them all!

4. Cookies for Sales. The cookies I baked for sales included Almond Cookies, Chocolate Almond Cookies and Spicy Dried Shrimps Cookies. Almond cookies' were modified from my baking school recipe, therefore, I shall not post up the recipe here.

The Chocolate Almond Cookies were extracted from Fenying's Blog. I felt in love with this cookies the more I eat! The difficulties is in cutting the dough. It has to be harden before you can slice it nicely. I sliced them too thin sometimes it just broke!

The Spicy Dried Shrimps Cookies were modified from Daily Delicious. The additional of chilli flakes made it taste like "hay bee hian". It's actually very tasty. I thought it will be good to have savoury cookies since almost all cookies are sweet.

Finally, these were my last CNY bake for my family.
