Hi sis,
Thanks very much for all your recipes. I have been a fan of your blog for a long time and I really enjoy looking at all the cake that you made. Do you have a bakery or what? Honestly, the cakes in a bakery are not as great as yours.
Every morning, the first thing I do when I sit at the computer is click on your blog to see the new cakes. It makes me feel great for a new day although I couldn't eat them :-).
Again, thanks and appreciate very much.

Hi Aunty

Your biscuits looks healthy. Can i don't use shortening but butter instead? Cos i seldom use shortening.

I love all your bakes!

yochana said...

Hi Aimei,

yes you can use butter for this biscuits. You can also use 2/3 plain flour with 1/3 wholemeal flour if you like really healthy biscuits.

Aunty,
I made this biscuit last nite. Would like to know whether the biscuit will expand during resting and also during baking? I've forgotten to add in the soda so I only add it in after resting. Thanks!

yochana said...

Hi delia,

this cookie doesn't need a long rest and it will expand slightly to make the cookie flaky. You must let the cookie rest again after adding the baking soda. Dont overknead this cookie otherwise it will become rubbery and hard.

Aunty,
I've made a second batch of the biscuits but the results....i still prefer the first batch. I also don't know what happened. I follow the recipe to the t but my biscuit came out just like 'masuk angin'.

yochana said...

Mmm delia,

is your heat too high? Lower down your temp and bake a little longer to prevent "masuk angin".

Hello! is it possible to replace all the plain flour with wholemeal flour? cause i dont have plain flour at home. hee. & how abt veg oil replacing butter? will it taste weird?

thks alot!

yochana said...

Hi Koh,

Replacing all with wholemeal flour will make the biscuit very coarse and dry unless you use the organic wholemeal flour.

Koh said...

oops! i meant replacing plain flour with wheat flour, is it possible? & can i use canola oil instead of butter?

sry for the trouble, & thks alot!
