I tried this with my twins today and somehow I thought they will expand and place a tiny blob in each cupcake patty like theones shown in the picture. but it turned oput the same size. Are these suppose to expand? Thanks! Oh by the way, the kids love it. Finish them all in an hour. Lol.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi aunty yochana,

for this cookies, if toss around sugar.. will it become very sweet ? u use fine sugar ?

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Jessica,

It's funny that although I tossed it with fine sugar, it doesn't taste too sweet for me. I do have a sweet tooth tho.

Just wanna ask, 50 grams of egg is equivalent to how many eggs?

Aunty Yochana said...


50 gms. - roughly 1 egg.

hi there aunty,
i've make this cookies and it is now a big hit. my brother's addicted to it.
1 question though aunty, you said here to 'Put the 3 parts together and pinch into small balls'. how do you do this? i failed. when i put them together, i can never pinch all colors. so i have to pinch a bit of every color and then roll it. it's quite tiring.
hope you can help me on this coz my brother will finished it up in a couple of days. he already asked me to make it more!
