First up, Kueh Makmur. These are traditionally shaped into leaves and they should have a leaf pattern on top. However, as this is my first time making this, I couldn't get the leaf pattern on top, despite crimping before baking.I almost dropped dead after finishing making these, the shaping process is tedious, and there were only 46 pieces! But the end result is worth it, rich, melt-in-the-mouth buttery cookies with a fragrant peanut filling on the inside. All those who tried liked it very much :p
All packed up as gifts (re-used the metal tin from buying mooncakes :p)
Next up, Cashewnut Crisps. These cookies are true to their name, it's really crispy. I've made some a few weeks back using peanuts in place of cashewnuts, and the fragrance is simply irresistable!
Still taking their time in the oven (sorry for the poor pic, my oven door is reflective)
Fresh cookies from the oven
