Salam all XD Happy fasting XD XD XD this will be the 1st of the so-called many 'kuih raya' recipes i'll be posting this Ramadhan; and this one is called the Strawberry Cornflakes Cookies which i adore sooooo much when i was young (still young though). I've actually done this recipe twice already; mainly because i accidentally put the wrong ingredients on the first go =_= hence, lesson of the day, DO NOT misread your mom's treasured recipe book =_= ok guys, let's get started! XD
These are what you need: 250g of butter, 3/4 cup of castor sugar, 1 egg YOLK, 100g of crushed cornflakes, 200g (2 cups) of wheat flour, 2 teaspoon of red colouring, almond strips, Koko Krunch.
Okay, as always, mix the butter and the castor sugar together.
When the butter and sugar seemed well-mixed, add in the YOLK.
Now, turn your 100g of cornflakes into golden powder :)
When the cornflakes are well ground, mix it with the flour.
Then, mix everything together. btw, THE MIXTURE SHOULDN'T BE AS COARSE AS THE ONE IN THIS PICTURE. IT SHOULD BE SMOOTH AND QUITE TOO SOFT. I PUT TOO MUCH CORNFLAKES IN THIS PICTURE; AND IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING - YES, THIS WAS THE TIME WHEN I ACCIDENTALLY MISREAD THE RECIPE =__=
After that, add in the colouring so that it has a 'strawberry-ish' look and you should start moulding its shape.
IT"S SUPPOSED TO LOOK KINDA LIKE THIS BUT SINCE I MADE THE MIXTURE TOO COARSE, IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO MOULD IT INTO A STRAWBERRY SHAPE. THERE SHOULD BE A PIECE OF KOKO KRUNCH IN IT AND 3 ALMOND STRIPS STUCK INTO IT TO RESEMBLE LEAVES.
Hence, because the mixture was too coarse, I changed the shape into heart-shaped cookies.
Then again, if you're having trouble with the correct recipe, you can always put it in paper cups. By the way, the cookies in this photo are taken from the second time i baked them - hence, the correct recipe. However, the problem with the correct recipe is that; the mixture will be too soft. Hence, if you feel that the mixture is too soft, then you should be assured that you're doing fine :)
So, there you go. Try it. It's my first of the many recipes of 'kuih raya' which i'll be posting later on. KBAI. salam.
