Chinese New Year Mood

Look what we've done in a weekend:

Pineapple Tart:
Everything was made from scratch. I stood in front of the stove for a good whole hour just to get the right wetness and sweetness for the jam.

Traditional Kueh Lapis:
This is my favourite out of the three. Despite the long hours and repeated handling of trays in and out of the oven, it's all worth while. The cake is super moist and it's not too sweet. The spice taste was not too overpowering. My mum is not a fan of cinnamon , cloves and nutmeg but she devoured the whole piece in two bites. * The colour looked better in real life*

Cashew Nut Cookies:
The pastry simply melts in the mouth while the nut gives a subtle crunchiness to it. Oh, and it's a vegetarian recipe.
* Reb K. , i can bake this for you*

I hope we can try more variaties. Del, whennnnnn?
