With the same batter, I came out with 3 different shapes. One shape is just one layer of the rectangle cookies. The original recipe asked for double layer of the rectangle so I made that too. And the last shape, I use floret mould and I top it off with m&m.
Here are the ingredients:
1 can on sweetened condensed milk (12 oz I think). Original recipe called for Nespray powdered milk
2 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup confectioners sugar (you could use 1 1/2 cups if you like it sweeter)
3 cups flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon essence vanilla
1 egg yolk
This recipe yield lots of cookies. I did not count. But I was feeling weak the next day because too long standing in the kitchen.
In a big bowl, cream butter and sugar.
I use the pressed cookie cutter as shown in the picture above.
Pressed one straight line on baking sheet. Use knead flour cutter to cut about 2 inches in length.
Bake in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes on 350F degree. Do watch the cookies so that it will not get too brown.
Let the cookies cool completely before storing it in air tight container. This cookies can last for months.
I must say my darling love this cookies so much that he ate 20 pieces already. So I have to hide the rest of the cookies or else it won't make it till Raya day.
