Monkey Fortune Biscuits (猴王贺饼)

INTRODUCTION

Once upon a time, a group of teenage monkeys were playing in a forest.. Their faces was full of pimples and dirtied with mud.. They were called to celebrate the coming monkey year 2016. Lol..

I did not do justice to my cookies. What I thought does not come out to what it look like.. I can easily explain this ugly batch of monkey cookies. I was rushing for time to go to the school for parent teachers meeting and it was prepared in a rush. I did not let the cookies have adequate time of chilling and when I wrap and cut, it is out of shape.

I am never good at cake decorating and I do not even know what to use to draw a line in a cake.. I lack all these basic knowledge but I believed that readers who follow my instruction to the dot, I am sure you can do a much better cookies than me..

I always have ideas but I lack of the necessary expertise to carry out plus I am not a patient person, my cookies is expected to look worse than those baker with patience and attention to details.

Do not doubt the biscuits. It is a nice biscuit. It has a crispy texture and it taste like the traditional check board biscuit or very closed to the current trendy cranberry biscuits.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 150 degree Celsius (You can preheat the oven towards the end of your preparation as the preparation can be rather time consuming).

  • Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add in the beaten eggs. Sift in the flour and stir until well mixed. Take out about 1/4 of dough and sift in the cocoa powder. Stir until well mixed. So you have 3/4 of beige dough and 1/4 of the chocolate dough.

  • For the beige dough, divide into 3 dough of which 1 portion is 1/2 the weight and the other 2 portions are of 1/4 of the weight each. Shape all the three dough into cylindrical shape of the same length, wrap the dough using clingy wrap  and freeze the dough until firm in the freezer or chiller. Once it is firmed, take out the  dough and put the 2 smaller cylindrical dough on top of the big cylindrical dough resembling the years of the monkey (big dough = face, small dough = ears)

  • Cover the beige cylinders with all the cocoa dough. Shape round again , wrap with clingy wrap and send back to the freezer. Chill or freeze until firm . Once it is firmed, use a sharp knife to slice to about 5mm thickness and bake in the pre-heated oven of 150 degree Celsius for 20-25 minutes. Note that the handling of these dough need to be fast, other wise it will start to deform.

  • Once baked and completely cooled, melt some chocolate, put it in a piping bag, cut a tiny hole at the bottom and draw the mouth, nose and eyes of the monkey. Feel free to design your own facial expressions.
