An Alumni friend cum blogger came over to my house yesterday for a baking session with her hubby. Yes! Her hubby. She force (didn’t actually force la) her hubby to help out with the baking. But I tell ya, making cookies is like playing with play-doh.
Beforehand, I cook the pineapple with sugars and cinnamon stick for hours till dry and let them cool throughly. This is the ingredients for making the dough:
100gm icing sugar
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
700gm wheat flour
Look at her finger! Isn’t it such a waste to put this pic in a collage form? This is my first time making ini maciam punya (this type of) cookies. Shape them into a small ball. Use a clove as the… the… suddenly I’m out of words. But I know you know what I’m trying to say la.
Glaze with egg yolk and condense milk. The pic here is before baking. Bake them at 180C for 20minutes.
By the time we finished the first 1kg of pineapple jam, I can sense that my friend and her hubby a bit lazy liao. Haha! That was only 3 hours of baking. They left after a red wine mee suah lunch. Now I’m left with another 1kg of pineapple jam. My usual way of making is the common pineapple roll.
“Daddy, come help me la.”
“Aiyah, my friend hubby so good. Can help out. Come la” (Ahem! must pressure him a bit)
A good way for bonding too. We discuss a bit on our 10th Anniversary trip
Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough and another rolling pin with teeth mark to make the lines. Cut them 1 inch x 2 inches. Place the pineapple jam on the centre and roll them. Before baking, glaze them with egg yolk.
We continue baking for another 2 hours. Darn tired by then. This is my last baking too.
