The little bear will melt your heart but the cookies will not melt in your mouth. They are crunchy!
|I added a tsp of cocoa powder to part of the dough (240g) to get this color.|
I don't like and I don't eat PLAIN butter cookies. So don't ask me if these cookies taste good Lol.... However, I get my food taster (my hubby) to try it out as he is my 'opposite', he only eat PLAIN butter cookies. He rated good, so I keep this recipe for future used.
This recipe only calls for egg yolk. So this is a good way to make use of the leftover yolk from baking Crispy Almond Bread, Roasted Almond and etc... which only calls for egg whites. They are perfect match!
Chinese New Year is around the corner and many were asking for this recipe. I'm still not 100% recovered yet, I can't stay up too late...so I will only share the recipe for the butter cookies dough but not the step by step how I shape the cookies. I'll update my blog with details, perhaps after Chinese New Year when I have time and fully recovered. This blog is for fun so I'm not going to stress myself too much.
If any of you happened to read my blog here and want to know more about shaping, feel free to leave a comment below.
