Chinese New Year Goodies

Hello!!! Happy New Year to all my Dear readers and friends. It had being a month or so since my last post here. As I am really busy with work and taking care of Reyon, usually I have much spare time to try out new Bakes or doing a post entry. But since Chinese New Year is around the corner, I would like to squeeze some time off to bake some goodies for my family and relatives.

At first I guess since I didn't stock up the necessary ingredients in time I would have a hard time sourcing around for them which I might not be able to make those goodies that I plan for. But our God is good, He knows what you want and He always provide the best for us. Luckily I managed to find all the necessary ingredients just in time to make all these goodies. As you see, I had made 3 different types of pineapple tarts which represent 3 different good meaning for New Year. I personally prefer the pineapple puffs most because of it juicy filling and wonderful pastry and for decoration and New Year purpose I had also topped it with some edible Gold Foil to make it more delicacy.

Other than pineapple puffs, I also made these Yam Puffs from the yam paste(Orr Nee) that I have. And this is really very edicting and smooth and really melts in your mouth. I love the taste of the yam paste with the pastry. And those who loves to eat Orr Nee will definely loves this special treat.

This is my very first time making Almond Cookies after seeing and hearing all the good feedbacks about this Chinese New Year cookies. So since I had some ground almond left from making Macarons, I decided to give it a try. And I must confess that it really did not disappoint me. The texture, fragrant and taste are just nice like what I prefer. Posted by Picasa
