Haw Flakes Butter Cookies

Here's another simple and yet easy to make butter cookies with the addition of Haw flakes in it. Haw flakes is actually made of something called Hawthorn berries which I've the pictures as below. And they're all imported from China. I like eating it when I was a child. And now my children love eating it as well.

Ingredients :

140gm butter
70gm sugar
1 egg
1/2 tspn vanilla essence/extract
200gm all purpose flour
1/2 tspn baking powder
5 packets Haw Flakes

Method :

- cream butter and sugar untill fluffy.
- stir in eggs and vanilla essence, mix untill well combined.
- fold in flour and baking powder to form soft dough.



- then add in haw flakes and mix well.
- divide dough into 2 portion, wrap with plastic sheets.
- roll dough into oblong shape.
- chill for 3-4 hours(in freezer) or overnight preferred.
- then slice roughly about 7mm thickness, place them to baking tray.


- finally, bake at 180'c for 15 mins.

Just look at these fresh Hawthorns. Isn't it gorgeous? It looks like cherry but a little bigger than that. So, enjoy and have a nice weekend, guys ! Cheers always.

  35. I think I love you! I LOOOOOOOVE HAW FLAKES! I devoured them as a kid and adult...now I'm a bit nervous - are they still OK to eat being imported - are they really 100% haw? These cookies are FABULOUS. LOVE IT!

  36. Zomppa : I'm not sure too! We only take it once a year. So, can't bother much about it! hehe... Since the government had already approved the imported goods. I think should be alright!
