I make this too, my dog ate two without raisins, I find that I take a long time creaming the butter & icing sugar manually.

I tasted them and feel that raisins taste bitter after baking, the outer layer is crispy and the middle is soft. My hubby loves it, he says it is very tasty!

Hi Kelly, you can try soaking the raisins in a bowl of water for a while to pump the raisins up before using them to bake.

I baked this yesterday..was very easy to do. Only time consuming part was to hand rolled each one. I put them into tiny paper cups to make it more pretty.

Based on Sherry's recipe, I could make 400 cookies(size of each cookie was about a 20 cent coin.(Singapore coin!)






I'm baking more today..for MIL and will substitute butter for margarine!

Thanks Sherry for the recipe. It was really very very nice. My mom ate 20 cookies at one go!

Gina,

With our tefal oven, we can bake 2 batches at one time? Do we have to switch the tray during middle of the baking? The last time I did that for my chocolate chip cookies, I realised the lower batch was not fully baked.

Do you do that for most of your cookie baking include kueh bangkit and pineapple tarts?

Haha... sorry, this is off-topic.

I do one tray of cookies and place on upper rack. While its baking, I do another tray(take my own sweet time).

When I finished the 2nd tray, i put it in the lower tray. By another 15 mins or so, the top tray is baked, removed..and move the lower tray to the top.

then removed the cookies to cool on a wire rack. and start making cookies for the tray..and repeat the process till all the cookies are baked.

If I use my MW Convection oven, I can do 3 trays and each tray can hold up to 80 cookies. My MW convection has mati already..! :cry:

Oh, I see. Thanks for the explanation, Gina.

Can hold 3 trays? That much? I find that the texture of the cookies or cakes baked by MW Convection oven (mine's Sharp) not as good as the tefal type. Or maybe my baking skill wasn't that passable at the time when I have only my Sharp. Embarassed

Mati liao ah? Like what Del always tell me, go seduce hubby to get you a new one. :lol:

I can't do without my MW. Good for heating up food in a flash.

mine is also Sharp. Mine is 18 years old already..overworked. Which model is yours? I only had my Tefal last February. All the roasting leg of lamb, chicken, beef, pork were done on the MW oven. the Tefal is only good for pastries and the occasional one dish meals like Baked Pasta, rice, etc. Impossible to put the pizza in. The MW oven did the pizza for me.

I just checked out the model I can buy to replace my mati one. Its Sharp R958A costs S$570 and comes with a S$30 NTUC Gift Voucher. Got no budget this month..will buy next month. Anyway, I have my Tefal so I can temporary live without the MW oven for a month.

Luckily never take too many pastries order..or really have 'si hor lee kuah" :lol: Mr. Green

Mine is R888 and we bought at $490 in Nov 2002. Mine came with NTUC voucher too. That time, we also bought a Sharp fridge which also came with voucher. We used the vouchers to buy the basic necessities for our love nest. That really saved us some money.

I have yet to use my MW for roasting. I dread the cleaning part.

Haha... yah lor. You know, my feet are still swollen from standing too long. I have been standing for straight 3 days just to make those pastries. Am resting my feet now, will start to bake more pineapple tarts tomorrow.

yes, I heard that the R888 model was very popular..! but I need something that is the same capacity as my dead one(40 litres)..coz I am so used to it.

I lined the tray with aluminium foil..so not much cleaning.

standing? Jean Lee is another person who has to stand to do her work. I learnt to sit down to do my work. Thus I can bake 400 to 500 pineapple tarts a day. The only time I stand is to take the tray in or out.

like when I was teaching people to make soon kueh..I sit at the table to roll the dough while others must stand..they find it difficult to sit to roll. coffee

Thanks Sherry for the recipe.

I tried this last Sat and it was a success. Instead of rolling the dough with the cornflakes, I simply pour the cornflakes into the dough and mixed them together. In addition, I added 1/2 cup of pounded peanuts and some chopped cherries. They look good and taste good!

There is a Panasonic Inverter Convection Microwave oven NN-C2003S which is 42 liters and has 2 layer baking.. Means no need to play musical chair with the trays.. oven will try to keep constant temperature for both tray

There is another model NN-J993 is 30 liters Inverter MW Convection Oven also has two layer baking ... but interesting feature is steaming and got no turn table.

There was promotion for these two items from Christmas but don't know if still on

papercook

for MW oven, I only sweared by Sharp brands. Their after sales service is extremely good. Today call them, tomorrow they come. when there is something to be fixed, its often between $50 to $60 for out of warranty ovens. Once, I had the lamp fuse blown. they came and fix it in less than 15 mins. And I only paid $40 for the whole job. $5 for the fuse, and the rest is service/transport.

National and Panasonic ovens are Made in China. Sharp still maintains its production in Japan. thus the price is at least $100 more.
