小时候Angel家里的过年饼都是婆婆和姑姑制作的，从来没花过一分钱买外面卖的年饼。家里制作的年饼有黄梨塔，Kuih Bangkit，Cornflakes 饼，腰豆饼和炸蜜蜂窝，唯独少了那种挤花的传统牛油饼。所以，每次去拜年时我特别留意牛油饼，吃得最多的也是牛油饼。
This lovely butter cookie is melt-in-the-mouth and the taste is somehow very close to the famous German Cookies except it is not as light as German Cookies in my opinion. You may want to give it a try if you are fan of German Cookies.
Flower Butter Cookies
Ingredients: (yields about 45pcs)200g good quality butter, soften at room temp
50g icing sugar
150g bread flour/ high protein flour
50g rice flour
Red cherry (for decoration purpose)
- Cream butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy.
- Sift in bread flour and rice flour in 2 additions, mix till just incorporate.
- Pipe flower on greased or lined baking tray. Decorate with red cherry.
- Bake in preheated oven at 170C for about 12-15 mins (I prefer slightly over baked cookies than pale looking one. You may cut down the baking time once the cookies are cooked).

I am not sure but i thought traditional butter cookies is added with custard powder, that one look yellowish and have a small red cherry at the center? I would said this is a new way of butter cookies using bread flour and rice flour, are you agreed me?ReplyDelete
I am referring to the look actually. I made it look like traditional butter cookies with red cherry at the centre.
I have to think twice now if I shall change the name.
Beautiful cookies! I might try making these too :)ReplyDelete
it won't take up much of your time. Give it a try!
Angel, this series of photo has given me so much of CNY feel! CNY is my most fav festival and though not being able to celebrate with my family and friends in Malaysia(for 8 years), I still like this special festival very much! This is a super hit cookies, I like the nozzle that you have used to pipe those cookies!ReplyDelete
I remember when I was a kid CNY is my favourite festival because we got to have new clothes and receive ang pow. Even now as an adult CNY is still my favourite festival.
我近来都被butter cookies电晕了。。。 哈哈哈。 这食谱很特别，有空一定回试试看。ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing this great recipe...ReplyDelete
You are welcome!
hi,,can i used all purpose instead of usingReplyDelete
bread and rice flour,,
hope uo don mind to share,,
Bread flour helps the cookies stay in shape after baking.
Rice flour has no gluten, I suppose it helps to make the cookies lighter and "melt-in-the-mouth".
This butter cookies look so pretty. I like it, it still maintian such lovely flower shape after baking.
You mention it is a traditional cookies but i guess the ingredients is slightly more advance or different from traditional cookies right??..heehee

Hi Angel,do you think with German cookies recipe,will the shape hold so well like this?ReplyDelete
Yes. I tried making German Cookies in flower shape and the shape holds. See below post
However, I notice German cookies will spread a little bit when baking but this one is almost totally maintain the shape before baking.Delete
