Subsequent to the issuance of my homemade salted egg yolk powder as in this post: Homemade Salted Egg Yolk Powder (家居自制金莎粉， 咸蛋黄粉） , I have decided to update the recipe using these homemade salted egg yolk powder. For this recipe, you will need about 4 tablespoons of the powder and of course you can add more if you like stronger flavor. Please click on the picture below or the blue colour link to go for the recipe.
My Chinese cookies post should almost come to an end in a few days and I will be concentrating to bake my Chinese New Year cookies. Meanwhile, I have many savoury dishes recipes lined up for the readers…Some will include the usage of excessive egg whites that you have while baking Chinese New Year recipes.
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..
After baking so many cookies for these two years, to be exact at least 30-40 types of cookies, I believed that I can easily come out with a recipe that is acceptable to suit my taste buds.
My experiment was extremely rewarding, it is a really melt in the mouth cookies that have some buttery salted egg yolk taste. I really loved this sandy cookie as it tastes rather different from the others.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Servings: About 50 small cookies
3 salted cooked egg yolk (if uses salted raw egg yolk, will need to steam until firmed) OR 6 tablespoons of salted egg yolk powder (referHERE for recipe)
60 grams of butter
70 grams of plain flour or cake flour
30 grams of milk powder
30 grams of potatoes starch
30 grams of icing sugar
1 egg yolk for egg washing
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds for decorating
- 3 颗熟咸蛋黄或6大匙家居自制咸蛋黄粉 （食谱： HERE）
- 70克中筋面粉 或 低筋面粉
- 30 克马铃薯淀粉
- 30 克白糖粉
- 1 个蛋黄涂蛋液用
- 2 汤匙白芝麻，装饰用
STEPS OF PREPARATION
Pre-heat oven to 165 degree Celsius.
- 把烤箱预热到 165 度 C.
Cream the butter, icing sugar and salted egg yolk or powder until light and fluffy. Sift in all the flours (milk powder, potatoes starch and plain flour). Fold until it form a pliable dough. Transfer to a lightly floured surface. Roll to about 1 cm thickness.
- 把牛油，糖粉和熟咸蛋或咸蛋粉打到颜色变浅及蓬松。 筛入粉 （奶粉， 马铃薯淀粉及面粉）。 搅拌至成团。 把面团放在台面，擀平直约 1cm 厚度。
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。
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。
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.
