2020 Cookies


Sempena Chinese New Year, I spent a few hours baking. I didn't have much energy, I was more like an engine sputtering and spewing smoke.

Instead of VROOM..VROOM... I was more like vroom...vroom..ehek..ehek... I posses none of the energy I had back in 2016 and yesteryears where I actually cooked and hosted the reunion dinner and even lunch/dinner the following day(s). No more!

So. Let's see. What did I bake?


I found packets of dried cranberries in the fridge which were still good and I bought Nestum to bake these cranberry Nestum cookies. As usual, I cannot get the cookies small and dainty no matter how hard I try.


This is the first batch. Had to bake in four batches because my oven is small. Then I started on my next batch of cookies.


These are chocolate based and since there was still a lot of Nestum left after coating the first batch of cookies, these became Horlicks Nestum chocolate chip cookies. 

The initial two batches were rolled and coated with Nestum. Then I got tired and dumped the Nestum into the remaining dough. Made them into little balls and pressed with a fork.

Then I was exhausted and made larger balls and pressed them thinly to make some sort of crunchy biscuit.


See. One dough. Three shapes. Many sizes. That's why I don't sell cookies. If I sell, I have to make sure same size, same shape. So I cannot be bothered. I bake. You eat. Don't complain. Simple. hah..hah..


There you go. 


Tomorrow is the eve of Chinese New Year and my family and I are having our dinner at a restaurant. No cooking! Woohoo!! heh..heh...

I would like to wish all of you who are celebrating a very HAPPY, HEALTHY AND PEACEFUL CHINESE NEW YEAR! KEONG HEE HUAT CHYE! HUAT AH!

  1. At least your engine is still sputtering....mine died many years ago (I meant the cookie-making engine!) >.< My cooking engine still going strong and I'll be contributing two dishes for tomorrow's reunion makan...and probably cook a few more during the course of the holidays interspersed with eating out. Good for you...that you'll be eating out, no need to slave over the kitchen. Here's wishing you and your family Gong Xi Fa Cai along with good health and abundant wealth for the coming lunar new year :)

  6. Your cookies must be very tasty. I too not bothered with size or shape. I didn't bake cookies for many years, probably no mood. I will be cooking most of the meals (lunch and dinner). Tiring and free sauna bath cooking in the kitchen in this hot weather.

    1. It's good that you have the energy to home cook for the festive period. Home cooked to me is best. The spirit is willing but the flesh...so weak... LOL!
