Resepi Biskut Raya Mama Carries

0

Hmm..

I've tried making cakes, cupcakes, and bread. But never biscuits. Well, very rarely and they didn't turn out as I expected (they went on strike and either got flat when baked or blown up like baloons, huhu). Did try making biscuits a loooong time before I was married to my dear hubby. And each time they turn out different, eventhough they were from the same recipe! :P

But now alhamdulillah, I managed to bake a batch of Mama Carries last night and they turned out quite satisfactory. The icing puffed up nicely and didn't dribble down the sides (like I made last year). It turned out you got to make them as delicately as making meringues- whip 'em up nice and fluffy and get no oils in them. And it's easier using the back of a spoon to deco them (some might find using a finger is much easier).

After three bakes into the oven (I got three trays full), I managed to get about 100 pieces all together. And even that I halved the recipe!

Hey, I ain't no Picasso but I can make a squiggle :p

I'll be making these again, insyaAllah, should anyone wants to make an order. A big balang-full about 100 pieces for RM18. Cewaah. Macam la ada nak beli ek :P

In case you want to try it yourself, below is the recipe from lilydvalley@myresipi.com. Thanks Lily!
