Oh, what a week!!! Following the epic battle with bee cake, it’s major cookie baking for CNY, followed by cupcakes…
With no clear winner from the cornflake cookie contest (a margin of 1 vote is quite insignificant…), I decided to do a big batch of the recipe I prefer… which is version B. Beside cornflake cookies, I also have my eyes set on melt-in-the-mouth butter cookies from Cook.Bake.Love. for a while, and a version of almond cookies on her bog as well. Alas, not enough time for the almond cookies during the week. Well, have to do it post CNY.
The recipe for cornflake cookies has already been posted on here
For Melt-in-the-mouth Butter Cookies
125g unsalted butter, soften at room temperature
40g icing sugar
125g potato starch
80g superfine flour (I used cake flour)
1/2 tsp salt
1) Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and lighter in colour, sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form a soft dough.
2) Roll into small ball, arrange on lined baking pan and press lightly with a fork. Bake in preheated oven at 150C for 20 mins, upper rack (need not bake till cookies turn brown).
These butter cookies have a interesting texture, indeed melt-in-your-mouth for lack of better description. They are a bit bland though since they are no flavourings. Some dried fruits like cranberries or rasins will give it a punch.
