They look just like butter cookies.Are they as crunchy as their title?
Aunty,I am looking for a proper stand mixer.People have recomended kitchen aid or kenwood.May I know what brand you use and its advantages?
Thanks.
Alinia.

Hi Alinia,

I used both brands.

I suggest you get a Kitchen Aid. They are very good for home use and they are very silent too.

Hi Lucy,

Why do we need chilli powder for this receipe?

Leen said...

Hi aunty,
It's kind of interesting to mix with chillie powder. May I know the brand of chillie powder. Thanks.

yochana said...

Hi Leen,

No particular chillie powder needed. I bought loose form from Giant. Sometimes I buy in pkt form.

hi cwongst

you can omit the chillie powder if you want to and substitute with some dried parsley instead.

Hi anonymous,

For cookies, you don't need a machine. Just use a spoon to stir vigorously (sugar and butter) till it turns pale white.

Hi anonymouus,

You can go to any market, Giant, NTUC supermarket...a lot of stalls sells chillie powder. Alibaba is the brand.

hi aunty!

i noticed that 1/2 egg is used for this recipe. pls pardon my ignorance. but does 1/2 egg mean 1 egg beaten then seperate into 2 portion?

many thanks!

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

You're right...beat 1 egg and divide by two.

or 1/2 egg = 30 gm.

Chris said...

Hi Aunty Lucy,

Thks for the recipe. I accidentally poured in 1 egg instead of 1/2 egg today. Mixture turned out a bit too soft for moulding into small balls but the taste after baking was great! Very crunchy and cheese fragrant. Cheers n regards, Chris

Hi Aunty Yochana

May I know roughly the amount/weight of cheese needed for this recipe?

I grated about 50g of block cheddar for this. The cookie didn't turn out very crunchy, but tastewise it was yummy.

Please advise.

Su

P.S. I tried the cream puff recipe you posted, it turn out very well. Thanks!

Aunty Yochana said...
