Salted Egg Yolk Cookies – Chinese New Year


Who could ever image that we could use salted egg yolks and make into cookies?

This unique taste has been very popular in Singapore. And I can’t believe that we have created so many different type of dishes and desserts. 


For this year Chinese New Year, these cookies have been popping all over the net. I guess one of the reason why it is so hype this 2016 compared to previous year is because there’s the recent crazed about Salted Egg Yolk Croissant that surfaced near our country, JB.

 Butter crumbly cookie with lovely depth of salted egg yolk flavor.


Anyway, If you love this pungent flavor, be sure to give it a goal! Salted Egg Yolk Cookies infused with Curry Leaves herb. I had used one of my mum’s old cookie mold, but you also could roll out to around 7mm thickness and cut using a cookie cutter. It works too!
