Teacher's day Food : Stained Glass Cookies

Mamarazzi have been debating whether to make the Water Chestnut Thong Sui for Teacher's Day Celebration or not coz it's cumbersome to bring be it in container or pot.

After reading all the pro and cons comments, Mamarazzi decided, aiyah no need to bring food to school la for Teacher's day Celebration. Just give Teacher's Day Gifts enough la. 

After all, she saw that previous years not many bring food too. All buy junk food in bulk and give to teacher; which Cikgu made into party packs for us to bring home.

But then on Friday, Cikgu again remind us to bring our favourite food to share. I fret a bit also la since I scare Cikgu will scold me if I didn't bring any food to share.




Think think think....Saturday morning Mamarazzi woke up early and decided to go for a second attempt of the Stain Glass Cookies which was featured in Sonia of Nasi Lemak Lover blog

There were some leftover candies from the first attempt the week before.


 In the first attempt, we've  got "Bubbles cookies"  instead of lovely Stained Glass cookies. 

Puzzling.....why bubble punya eh....Mamarazzi must have opps-ed somewhere again.


 Let me taste first...


 Hmmm...It's soft and it's hard...

Funny cookies....I like the biscuit part but I don't like the hard middle part.

Mamarazzi said I am the funny one...not the cookies. Usually kids would love candies mah but me pulak opposite. Doesn't like the candy part of the cookies.

Papa suggested maybe the candy not supposed to be "cooked" . Just need to melt it. 

 Bearing this in mind, Mamarazzi made these beauties last Saturday. 

 Yup! quite perfect.  


Compared to the week before, this batch was a success. Mamarazzi baked the biscuits for 15 minutes then put the candy in the middle of the star. Set the oven for 3 minutes. She kept peeking ...once saw the candy melted, she took it out quickly.


See so much different between the two .

Mamarazzi modified (yea yea yea what else is new) the recipe a bit coz she didn't have cake flour.

She used :-

50g salted butter
(*reminder to Mamarazzi -BUY BETTER brand of butter. Cheepo brand Papa said got weird smell)
40g icing sugar
juice from 1 slice of lemon(She was lazy to measure )
100g self rising flour
1 tsp of corn flour
FOX Candy ...each piece cut half.

Method
1. Beat butter, icing sugar and lemon juice till fluffy.
2. Sift both flour into the mixture and fold it.
3. Place the dough onto baking sheet. Use rolling pin to roll it till thin about 4mm. Put into freezer while she clean up the used utensils. About 10minutes gua...
4. Took out from freezer and start cut with cookies cutter, The center she used knife to cut. Kinda hard coz have to work fast. Kept have to freeze the dough as it kept bully Mamarazzi. Each 6 cookies...freeze.
5. Preheat the oven to 160C . Bake for 15minutes. Took out and put the candy into the center and bake for another 3minutes or till the candy melted. Once melted , take out before bubbles formed.


She managed to make 26 cookies out of this. And surprisingly my friends sapu finish. Mamarazzi thought they would be like me..may not like to eat the hard center.

I saw Mamarazzi snapping photos I also wanna snap photos la. These  "extra" stars are from the extra dough. Mamarazzi said made 26 enough la.

By the way, heard friends said these stars originated from a TVB drama wor. Mamarazzi also don't know coz she doesn't watch Astro. Ask her about books she knows la.

Errr ....as usual..... for the proper recipe, please visit Sonia Nasi Lemak Lover Blog. That one guarantee won't go "Holland".

  9. haha, so finally Mamarazzi decided to bake this stained glass cookies for the teachers instead of the water chestnut drink.. the latter on in her own comfort zone lah, just dump everything into the pot and she can go read her books until it boils.. but the stained glass cookies, woot woot, challenging Mamarazzi right?? bravo to Mamarazzi for taking the risks, and the result, awesome!!!

  10. yeah, Uncle SK watched that TVB drama.. if you follow the links, Mamarazzi referred to Sonia's blog, and Sonia referred to Jozelyn, and Jozelyn mentioned in her blog that she was inspired by that TVB drama.. but the drama didn't really show how this is made, Uncle SK thought it was quite nice and perhaps the actress used some more complicated way to make the stained glass, but this way of using the crystal sweet is pretty awesome and brilliant, a lot simpler..

  11. ah, the second batch looks a lot nicer, more crystal clear and see through, why la the first batch got so many bubbles?? Mamarazzi melted the candies before hand?? Uncle SK thought it's simple just melt the candies, but hmmmm, looks like not as simple as he thought eih.. anyway, i think these cookies look very nice and attractive, sure not only kids love them but also the adults lah.. Small Kucing is always the one with unique taste when comes to makan mah, right?? no surprise he didn't like the stained glass center :p

  22. Very creative idea! I'm just thinking if there are any pre-made cookies out there that have holes in the middle. In that case, you save yourself the trouble of baking the cookies and just need to put the candy in and melt! hehe #lazy :P
