London Chocolate Cookies


Frankly, I don't have any traditional home bake recipes cause my mom never baked. haha... So, I never bake my own new year cookies as well not untill now! This year, I'm going to try out lots & lots of new year cookies. And this would be my first recipe! Since we're celebrating both Chinese New Year and Valentine's day on the same day, so I'm making these lovely chocolates for the coming celebrations! By the way, I received many happy feed back regarding my last posting about 'my 10 favourite things' especially on issue number 10! HAHAHA.... Did I mentioned I love sex? NO, I'm sorry! I only mentioned about I love sexy instead! GOT YOU!!!! But I'm truely happy that you all have a great time and have a good laugh as well. I'm sure that will make your day a little easier.

Ingredients for dough:

125gm Butter
75gm icing sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tspn vanilla essence
225gm all purpose flour

* 335gm whole roasted almonds
* 400gm dark chocolate, melted
* some roasted crashed almonds, for decorations

Method :

- beat butter and sugar untill fluffy.
- add in egg yolk and stir well.
- fold in flour to form a soft dough.
- use about 3/4 tpsn dough and wrap in an almond nut.



- repeating the process untill completed.
- bake at 150'c for 10 mins, then leave to cool.



- place them to mini-paper cups and arrange nicely.
- drizzle the melted chocolate on top.
- finally, decorate with crashed almonds.

Wanna have a try? All I can say my kids love it and I have to seal the containers to keep their hands off. Hopefully, it can last untill the new year day!

  6. Alison : Is Simon alright now? Hope he is fine after the operation. Do take care OK! Btw, thank you so much for the award.

    Cheah : I'm staying at upper floor, so it's OK to take a snap at somewhere bright enough. I'm too shy to take photos outside the house. You know, people would stare at you like an alien! haha...

    Aux DDG : Merci! heureux que vous l'appréciez aussi.

    Anncoo : Sorry, I should say I've never make any New Year cookies before! Glad that you like it too.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Cheers, Kristy

  12. Yes, all tins would have to be sealed. They look so delicious. And so well made - and all pieces are even and so neatly arranged in the tray. The work of an expert chef!
