Final Products

These are what I had bake for today. Eh I missed out the Almond Butter Crisp pic. Damn tiring, I’ve had been baking non-stop for the past 3 days and I haven’t finished my baking lists yet!

But then again, not so bad lah, on the first day itself I had baked 200 over of pineapple tarts. Then second day itself I had baked 100 over of pineapple tarts, 100 over of the peanut oat cookies and 50 plus of melting moments.

And today no time to count but then I had baked Ching’s (Belachan) Kuih Bangkit, Edith’s (smallcookies) Cornflakes Cookies, Almond Melting Moments and Almond Butter Crisp.

You might wonder how come I baked so much especially the pineapple tarts? At first Mom told me she going to give some to her manager then later my aunties and finally her mahjong kaki! *Eyes Rolling*

Hey, I only bought 2 packets of pineapple filling and some leftover filling when I first tried out Josh’s pineapple tarts. So I had to rush down to PH to buy more filling, butter and some baking needs. I had lingering in PH, thinking should I buy the baking pan/tray although it cost $6.10 but... but... I had overspent! And yet I always wanted to buy a digital weighting scale. Aiyah buy lah buy lah!

I’m glad I had bought the baking pan/tray. LOL $6.10 really damn worth! Look, I can bake 50 – 60 pieces of cookies and tarts plus I don’t have to worry about getting the kuih bangkit stuck onto the pan. Compare to with my others rectangle tray either they are too big and the 4 sides of the cookies will get burnt or I could only baked 35 pieces of cookies with the smaller tray.

*Hops around happily* I wonder, I got such good stamina to do so much baking this CNY. Did you notice I added 1 recipe into my baking list every one day? LOL *Look at the clock* gosh coming to 5am and I have yet sleep! _((@))_((@))_ Look like erm... Tara Panda?
