At last. At long last, our internet problem is fixed. I've been so cut off from all of you, it's driving me crazy. To counter, I got myself busy trying kuih raya recipes while keeping up with the country's 'situation'. Not much. 16th came and gone. Nothing happened. Well a good thing too. I was worried a similar 13th May might erupt. Thank God it didn't and lets hope never will.
So, anyway, before I knew it, I've done 10 recipes. Have a look at my achievement here. Forewarn - this isn't an order catalogue. Hihihi..I'm just excited because this is the first time I ever make kuih raya. I'm surprised it wasn't too difficult after all. It looked so daunting before I didn't even bother to try. My late mom would have been proud if she saw these. Maybe it's all because I'm a SAHM now. I can't imagine attempting while I was still working.
Kuih Badam Coklat. The most difficult due to shape, plus I spent half day glazing. But my eldest son & daughter loves it. I guess it's a keeper.
Biskut Mazola. Easiest and no egg.
Biskut peanut butter. I won't try this again. Too sweet. I'm not sure whether to cut down sugar or pnut butter.
Cornflakes Daisy. I would modify the filling next time. The tart is good.
Cornflakes Mate. I've got to find a better way to drizzle the top without messing the shape. Youngest son's favourite.
Biskut Kelapa. Biasa.
Biskut Cornflakes Bijan. I'm curious to try it because it uses hard boiled egg. Makes the taste light and 'cushy'.
Biskut Buah. Very basic. The 'buah' is sultanas and ceri. My sis in law like it though.
Biskut Coklat Orange. Very crispy. But the dipping process is quite tedious.
Ok this isn't new. I make this every year. My favourite. Kuih Siput.
So how about you guys? Any homemade raya cookies? Let's trade recipes. I'm in search of London Almond recipe. I need a new recipe book. These I got from a book called - Chef, Pilihan Terbaik Biskut & Kek- published in 2002. The recipe really work. But it's great if there's more latest interesting cookies to learn. If you got any good books that you know, please let me know.
