Easy Recipe 123 : Raisins, Corn Flakes & Pineapple Cookies

Having some mood to make cookies by following the ingredients and steps from a recipe found in a magazine. There's modification made after the first trial with the actual ingredient.

  • 280g self raising flour
  • 120g butter
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 80g raisins (black or yellowish)
  • 2 tablespoon fruit peels
  • A pinch of salt

1) Beat butter and sugar together until white and fluffy.

2) Add egg and stir, add flour slowly into the bowl of mixture.

3) Use hand to mix above mixture until it become like picture shown below.

4) Add raisins and fruit peels before putting on the pan.
5) Use tablespoon to design the cookies.
6) Bake cookies for 15 to 20 minutes (or monitor the cookies until it's colour turns into brown) with 180 degree temperature.

On the second day, I tried to make another type of biscuit with different flavour and design. My mom's worker told me to add some corn flour (starch), custard flour and wheat flour together in exchange with the self raising flour (280g), so that the biscuit will be crunchy. Besides, one or two drops of vanilla essence into the mixtures of flour can make the biscuit smells better.
The below was made with corn flakes and the pattern with strips on top of the biscuit was done by using a fork.

I've made other patterns of biscuits too... with chocolate chips, almond etc...

Pineapple tart. My mom favorite.
The pineapple can be found in some supermarket, or can be done our own... At first "shave" (or blend using blender - not preferable unless you are lazy) the pineapple into a big bowl to prevent from overflowing. It looks like juice. Then, cook the shaved pineapple until dry and yellowish. And don't forget to add sugar while cooking!!! One pineapple 3 tablespoon sugar (depend on preference).

p/s: Remember to spread some mixture of eggs, sugar and vanilla essence (mixed together) to "brush" the surface of those biscuit, so that it looks yellowish & attractive after its done.... YUMMY!!!
