honey bun

100g of rice flour is just nice. rice flour is alot lighter than plain flour. and looks very little when you put the 2 flours side by side..the pile look smaller.

this recipe was posted here long time ago. I used to post step by step photos that it took up so much server space. so now i only show the final product.

a few members here have tried it.

I've made it! Thanks Gina for the wonderful recipe. The dough was too soft n I cannot use cookie cutter, so I just make into rounds.

Hi Gina,
If I don't have rice flour, can I use the same amt of plain flour?
And since using plain flour, there's no need to add baking powder?

I'm just wondering...Razz

the rice flour makes this cookie light and crunchy. Without it, it will be like most basic cookie. it does not need any baking powder.

not all cookie recipe needs baking powder. like kuih bangkit, it doesn't need baking powder too coffee

Gina, I have tried this cookies over the weekend. Have not downloaded the pic. Anyway, it looks so ugly.

I do not know what has happened. I tried to cream the butter and sugar together but the sugar didnt dissolved. After creaming for 15 mins, i still can see the sugar clearly. So i continue with the rest of the steps without dissolving the sugar. I forgot to get the grind almond (from almond) from my mum, so i just add in the balance packet almond that i bought few mths back. The end result was very rough coz can see the sugar clearly. The fragrance also not as strong. Is it due to packet almond?

I let my colleagues tried and have mixed comments. Some said no taste and some said very nice. But all commented my cookie is so ugly looking. haha really need more practise to shape the cookies even though i'm using a cookie cutter. Embarassed

you need a cake mixer to do the creaming of butter and sugar. Of course can still use manual. but a bit tiring.

packet almonds tend to loose its fragrance over time. So if you want to use it for a cookie, better to roast it first, then use it. this is to bring out its fragrance better. Packet ones are good for cake batter.

sometimes, due to the very hot weather, the dough needs to sit in the fridge for a while--about 1 hour at least. then its easier to manage.

this was the cookie I made for Christmas sale last year. and customers loved the almond flavour and ask for more this year. I gave it to my friend Jean Lee to bake and sell too.

Gina, i used a cake mixer to to do the creaming. I have no strength to do manual leh :lol: But still do not know why the sugar cant dissolved. Is this melt in the mouth type or crunchy. Mine is crunchy coz of the sugar. Embarassed

I agree that packet almond is not that fragrant. My mum used to toast the almond and it really smells nice. I was thinking since i have the balance packet almond, i will just do that. This shows that no short cut if want nice fragrant cookie. Smile

the only time I realise I have sugar crystals in my cookie is when I use Coarse sugar. if you castor sugar or fine sugar, it will melt ..even during baking. so its very strange to me too. Wink

never mind, tomorrow I treat you to a Sugee Cake Razz
