Of CNY Cookies!

1 Feb

So yea, I’m back at home for the long weekend. πŸ™‚

And because apparently more people will be at home, Mom lined up quite some chores for this particular weekend!

I help out with putting up the CNY decorations at home. πŸ™‚

This one is voluntary cause I love decorating the house with CNY decos!

Somehow without the decos CNY just won’t be the same for my family. πŸ™‚

Then Sunday morning painted one of the walls in parent’s room with Fei and then after dinner, the women of Choongs were all gathered at the kitchen for the annual activity.

The one which I dread going through every single year.

To bake CNY cookies.

I just hate hate HATE baking this particular typeΒ ofΒ CNY cookie my Mom is famous for cause it’s really tedious!

#1. Preparing the dough

But this year I managed to fit in fun in between! Which is to take pictures!! πŸ™‚

So, the first step is of course to prepare the dough.

Then Mom will ‘break’ them into small pieces.

#2.

Then we got to make them into round round balls.

I don’t know what’s that process called. πŸ™‚

#3.

#4.

#5. Round round balls!

Then after that got to brush a layer of egg yolk and add a bit of almond on the top!

#6.

Β XinYi is specialized to do this part every year. πŸ™‚

#7.

Then into the oven the trays go and after about 30 minutes or so…

#8.

Tadaa!!! Hap tou sou fresh from the oven!!!

Another cookie Mom is going to make me help in baking in these few days…

#9. Chocolate chip cookies!

This, is something I don’t mind helping.

Not only because it’s one of my favourites, it’s simply because it’s less tedious.

After Mom prepares the dough, all I have to do is to put small pieces of it onto the trays!

No round round balls needed. πŸ™‚

Baking is testified to be extra super more fun when taking photos in between is added. πŸ™‚
