Almond Sandies
The texture
Jam Tart
I'm running late for my daily chores but still have the urge to update. So I'll go straight to the point. Harlina had asked for a few cookies recipe she could make for Eid. I've posted one of the recipes, i.e Pineapple Tarts before. The other two recipes that she had requested will have to wait as I don't have any latest photos of the cookies. I've made them almost every year, only I don't have any photos to share. So meanwhile, I'll just post the two cookies I've tried last week.

Just can't resist to try out this recipe when I saw it in Zack's page. Thank you Zack for discovering this recipe and sharing it with us...and sorry Zack, mama just copy and paste it from your page okay....Hope you don't mind....

Almond Sandies

100 g margarine/butter , softened
80 ml vegetable oil
( I used sunflower oil )
50 g white sugar
50g brown sugar
50 g confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 egg
3 ml vanilla extract
250 g all-purpose flour
2 g baking soda
2 g cream of tartar
3 g salt
70 g sliced almonds
* 50 g white sugar for decoration
(I didn't use this)

How to make:
1. Cream together margarine/butter, oil and sugar until smooth. Add in egg and vanilla essence.
2. Sift together dry ingredients and then add to the cream mixture. Mix well and add in the almond slices.
3. Roll dough into balls, and place on baking sheets.
4. Sprinkle the sugars on top of the cookies.
(I skipped this step)
5. Bake in a preheated oven of 190 deg for 10-15minutes.

And this is another recipe that I got from Dolly. Went to her house a few weeks back and tasted these cookies that she had just baked. It's so nice and soft and yummy! Asked her for the recipe that she willingly gave. Thanks Dolly for sharing the recipe with me, so that I can share it with all the recipe freaks in here....

60 g icing sugar
1 egg yolk

Pineapple jam ( I used mixed fruit jam )

Method :

24. Sheeba>> Hi Sheeba. When I was abroad, what I used to do is, whenever I go home for holiday, I'd bring back the daun pandan and keep them in the freezer for further usage. That's the best option though the smell won't be that strong. Or if you can just bring the root and then plant them at your house in India. I think the weather there is similar to Singapore, so you should be able to grow pandan there...But don't you have pandan/screwpine leaves there?
25 & 26. Sharee>> Hi Sharee. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you'll enjoy your mom's cookies ya.
