what i think got the recipe from kaoru! its very easy to make, it could be a chinese new year goodie too. the reason on why you have to chill the dough is cos the dough is v soft and oily after step 4, so to make life easier for cookie-cutting, chill it to slight harden the dough ->
The four of us started this blog together as a way to share our experiences and lessons in the kitchen. Now the blog has evolved into an random mix of recipes which we have tried and liked enough to want to share...some are dishes that remind us of home, some are things that we wouldn't usually have made in Singapore (muffins, cakes and most dishes requiring the oven) and others were just borne out of a need to use a certain ingredient!
Have a browse and have fun trying out the recipes!
