These are yummy, pure butter, and nothing else. These are flakey & melts in your mouth. Who knew that eggs, butter & flours mashed together can make such yummy things. So simple, and so yummy. Sigh, the best kind of baking that makes one look like a wizard in the kitchen.
I first saw the recipe from a link that my friend sent me about chocolate almond cookies, I browsed around the site because let’s face it, it’s easier for me to buy ingredients when the ingredients are already in Mandarin.
As it turns out, this website is a blog for the food show, and they’ve uploaded their segments on youtube (bonus!!) I watched the video for this cookie, and it looked easy enough to make that I tackled it last night.
I had all the ingredients. This is how stocked my pantry is now. Although the original recipe does not ask fro vanilla extract, I put some in anyways, i like vanilla.
I was going to break out the large mixer my mother has, this fancy German thingy, but I decided against it due to it being a pain to clean up with the butter, so I just mixed it all by hand & a spatula.
The indentations in the cookie are best made when they’ve come out of the oven, and not pre-indented. I did them half way thru baking, but they were still not indented enough to my liking, perhaps I made them too big. I think the next time I try them, I will not indent them at all until they come out of the oven, and just press them fresh out of the oven. It will be more obvious that way.
I will definitely make these again.
