CNY 2017 - MEAT FLOSS COOKIES

Though busy, still managed to select a few recipes for cookies which I have bookmarked to do long ago.  This is a nice, aromatic,  savoury and sweet meat floss cookies.  These are rather addictive and you wouldn’t stop with one or two. 

I like to recommend using the crispy type of meat floss for these cookies.  You can use just white sesame seeds or a combination of black and white sesame seeds and increase the amount of meat floss according to own preference.
My opinion is, this recipe is a keeper if you are looking for a meat floss cookie recipe. An easy recipe yet awesome result.

Hi Kimmy,
The bak hoo cookies looks yummy. Can I further reduce the sugar content? Will it affect the taste? Kindly advise as I would like to try it out since I'm running out of ideas what to bake for cny. Many thanks,
Florence Choo

Hi Florence, I suppose you can if you are not for sweet cookies like me. Anyway, these cookies are savoury sweet. Some bak hoo are quite sweet so you can adjust a little. Happy Baking.

Hi Kimmy! These savory cookies must be very addictive!

I am learning so much here...I had to go in search of what meat floss is and now I know what that is for future reference. I had never heard of that before. I am not sure I have ever had meat anything in a cookie before so I am curious about that...I will say that the cookies themselves look delicious and very pretty!

Hi Phong Hong, it is addictive that I have to tell my girl 'STOP' otherwise they will be gone in no time. She keep saying 'hoh heong'.

Kimmy said...

Hi Emily, if you and my girl were in my kitchen, this portion will be gone quickly. She told me not to include this for giveaway. Told her will make more next time.

Kimmy said...

Hi Kayte, meat floss is more common in Asian countries. In the past, most Asian countries will preserved food in various ways. I remembered my granny used to prepare a lot of these meat floss before she went back to China. She brought along meat floss, sausages and even lard.

Crispy bacon comes to mind..

Kimmy said...

Hi Emily, I think crispy bacon and bak kwa are good substitutes for this cookie.

TeaLady said...

Okay. I had to look up meat floss and it is nothing like I imagined or pictured in my head. Interesting ingredient. Cookies do look tasty.

Kimmy said...

Hi TeaLady, these are rather addictive if you like meat floss that can be made of pork or chicken.
