In recent years, salted egg yolk cookies are rather common after being promoted by other bloggers though I have only seen it this year. Imagining the taste, I tell myself I must give it a try since I have all the ingredients at home..

  • Use your preferred mould to mould the dough. Transfer to the baking tray. Egg wash (1 egg yolk with 2 drop of water) and sprinkle with some sesame seeds (Black or white). Bake in the pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes for 165 degree Celsius.

 

  • 用喜爱的模型扣出来。 放在烘盘中, 涂蛋液 (一颗鸡蛋黄加两滴清水), 撒上芝麻 (黑或白)即可在 预热后 165度的烤箱烘烤 12-15 分钟。

 

  • Let the cookies rest in the baking tray completely before store in an air tight container. Note that this cookies is very fragile when it is hot. Even when cooled, handle with care as it is sandy and melt in the mouth.

 

  • 出炉后, 让曲奇在烘盘冷切后方可收藏到 密封罐中。 因为这曲奇的特色是入口酥化,所以很轻,容易压碎, 取的时候必须非常小心。

Note

  • This is a rather sticky dough, pat your hands or dust the dough with more flour during shaping. You may need to floured the mould too before shaping.

 

  • 若面团太粘,可以使用一些手粉。 有必要的话,可以给模型涂些粉再造型。

CONCLUSION

Another simple recipe and I did not regret preparing this. It is a rather rich cookie as salted egg yolk blends extremely well with butter as opposed to the use of vegetable shortening. The cookies are supposed to be sandy and melt in the mouth with salted egg yolk buttery aroma.
