Flaked Almond Biscuits

When I saw Anncoo post up the recipe and pic of the flaked almond biscuits, I was attracted by it and told myself I must try this for Chinese New Year. I have reduced the sugar by 25gm. But not sure why my crisp is not evenly brown.....the side get burnt and the centre remain white......the biscuit looks bit ugly but the taste is defintely there. Thanks Anncoo for sharing the recipe.

Going NUTS

The baking class @ Serangoon on CNY bakes were rather easy. Use the rubbing in method. For the 1st batch, I follow the recipe strictly. Find the cookies too sweet hence reduced the 2nd batch sugar amount by 20gm and I find it just nice.

Used 2 different recipes from books. The strawberry roll is using recipe from 戚风+海绵 轻蛋糕77种 while the chocolate roll is using sponge recipe from 蛋糕卷 Roll cake by 曾美子. Both cake gave soft texture. But I preferred the strawberry roll. My chocolate roll looks like ‘面煎米果' filled with red bean paste haha....


While at NTUC, a lady is promoting this jelly from happy grass. Bought a packet each of konnyaku jelly powder & mango pudding powder. Tried out the jelly using my chocolate mould :) The jelly is nice by the way can you spot Hello kitty?
