Year 2007 CNY Cookies


I know it's a bit too late to post about CNY stuffs as it's a past now. But, I still wanna share it. :)

Anyways, I've made quite little cookies this year. I've only made two type of cookies and helped my aunt to do another three types of cookies.

For the two cookies that I made, I used the recipes from All Recipes . The two types of cookies I made was Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies and Crisp Oatmeal Cookies .

I have no regrets using a different recipe for my Chocolate Chips Cookies as there're yummy! Everytime I bake a cake or have cookie session, I would reduce the amount of sugar from what the recipe stated. If I were to follow exactly to the recipe, my bakings would turned out too sweet for me and my family's liking.

Same goes to these two recipes, I deducted almost quarter or half of the amount of sugar the recipe stated.Well, I must admit that I don't bake that often.


The Chocolate Chip Cookies actually turned out to be quite soft, or uncooked cause the recipe said do not over bake it. Moreover, my kitchen's old oven had problem telling me what exactly the degrees are. So, adjusting the correct heat would be a problem. After feeling dissatisfied about what turned out to my batches of chocolate chip cookies, I lost confident in baking Crisp Oatmeal Cookies. But I need to move on cause there isn't much time left for me to bake. CNY is coming very soon at that time!!!


I baked the oatmeal cookies as well. So, I did exactly from what the recipe tells except for reducing the amount of sugar. This time, the cookies turned out really crispy and light. I was quite happy with it. It's not that sweet, so it'll be suitable for my dad, a diabetic to consume it. But, I felt that the oatmeal didn't really appear to be what oatmeal should be. As in, the cookies was ok but lack of aroma. Perhaps I should heat the oatmeal up or give it some roast first before baking them.

Back to the chocolate chip cookies. I decided to re-bake them. Attention, I re-bake them 2 days after they're made ~! LOL. I have no regret again to re-bake them at all. This time, I baked them in my aunt's new oven. As this new oven allows me to adjust which directions the heat comes out from, it makes better baking...I guess. I started to re-bake the cookies on the sides where I placed them at the bottom of the oven, then shift them to an upper layer in the oven and to bake the center part of the cookies. The results, the cookies were super crispy and nice!!! :) I'm so glad about it.


This is what my aunt baked. The old and traditional Butter cookies that we used to had since I'm young.


It's definately one of my favorite for butter cookies. :)



Peanut cookies that my aunt won't fail baking them every single year. This time around she used a different recipe though.



This new recipe is not bad, but I preferred her old recipe as the old ones were more moist (not so hard), more aromatic and soft. She used to make flower shaped peanut cookies last time.

My aunt also baked Famous Amous type of cookies but I forgot to take pics of them. :) My aunt didn't give me any of her recipes too. So, no recipes for her cookies. But I guess no one would bother want recipes for cookies now as CNY are already over. :P
