From my Kitchen .... German Cookies

Chinese New Year is coming soon... and since today is a Public Holiday, I make myself comfortable at home by baking CNY cookies. As usual , I always go for something simple and easy to make and today I am baking "German Cookies".


Let me share with you the recipe :

Ingredients :
A) 250 gr butter ( I used WestGold )
     80 gr   icing sugar
B) 250 gr potato flour
     100 gr plain flour ( I used BlueKey brand - superfine flour )

Methods :
1. Mix A together, stir in high speed till fluffy.
2. Add in B and mix well. It is advisable to keep the dough in the fridge for about 1-2 hours.
It will help to make the dough firm and easy to make the round shape.
3. Make into small round shape, press lightly with a fork.
4. Pre-heat the oven , bake the cookies for 170'c for about 15-20 mins.

Note : Never add flour to increase the hardness of the dough.

From my Kitchen..... Lime Cheesecake

Although I have been quite busy lately, I tried to squeeze some times to do baking in my kitchen. Of course, I will opt for something simple to make and it does not consume lot of my time in preparation.
My hubby passed me this "Non-baked Lime Cheesecake" recipe the other day...I started to get ready all the ingredients and get my kitchen project done within an hour.

Since it is a  non-baked cheesecake,  I have to wait for overnight to get the result.....the next morning, I quickly opened my fridge and looked at the cheesecake, bit soft on top...so I never touch and let it be inside the fridge for a few more hours.
Only when I came back home in the afternoon, I cut a slice and gave it a try, the lime flavour was not strong enough (next time I should more lime for flavouring). Overall, I should say this cake taste good.

Chinese New Year is coming soon and now I am starting to bake CNY cookies.As for the cake, I still considering what cake to bake. Anyone mind to share with me some simple recipe for CNY cake?...
