Last bake of cny this year! Just gonna make this short and sweet :)
SUGEE COOKIES. My fav cny snack of all time, despite it’s unhealthiness (like all other cny snacks). This cookie is really sweet, and melts in your mouth, but… crunchy at the same time! Like how’s that even possible right?? But IT IS! That’s why it’s so amazing :) From what I read through various sources, the crunchy-ness comes from the semolina flour used (hence sugee cookies. sugee = semolina), and the rich flavour it has comes from ghee (purified butter, instead of the usual butter)!
It’s those white little circles with the nice cracks on them that make yummy sugee cookies :) Actually, my fave sugee cookies come from Bengawan Solo. Their cookies are more of a square shape though, and quite thick! But now that I have this recipe…. don’t think I’ll be eating the Bengawan Solo ones for a while! They do taste pretty awesome, and good enough for me! (P.S. cny snacks can be really expensive!!)
So, these little goodies are super simple to make, with really few ingredients. You really only need a huge bowl and a wooden spoon. Alternatively, just one mixer. (Of course the oven too ;)) I used a bowl and spoon!
Recipe from basicbakes –
Makes 40 large (2-tsp size) biscuits or 80 (1-tsp size) small ones.
Because these cookies are made of ghee, which have a longer shelf-life than butter, these cookies can be kept for quite some time :) If you’re looking for something sweet/have a sweet-tooth, this is a great yummy treat :D My mum actually found this a little too sweet, but then again, she has a very low sweet tolerance! The rest of my family loved it! :D
