Hup Tol So

                   Continuing my series on Biscuits/Cookies.  Sorry gals I dont know the English name for this biscuit and forgot to ask the Chef for its "English" name when I went for the class.  It is tasty and usually bakers love to place an untoasted Walnut on the top.

               Ingredients

               300 gm              Plain Flour
               120 gm              Icing Sugar
                 1/2 teasp        Sodium Bicarbonate
                 1/2 teasp        Ammonia
                    1 teasp        Baking Powder
                100 gm            Planta Margarine
                  80 gm            Shortening
                    1                  Egg Yolk

            [For Egg Wash  - 1 Egg Yolk mix with 1 Tabsp Water & a Pinch of Salt]

             Method
  1. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl & using a K-Beater knead into a dough.
  2. Roll into uniform *size & cover with a damp cloth.
  3. Preheat oven at 180 degrees Celcius for 20 minutes.
  4. Take 1 ball, & cover the rest with a damp cloth, roll lightly into a ball.  Make a hole in the centre with a chopstick & do not put them too close on a greased baking tin as they will expend, cover biscuits till you finish the rest.
  5. Egg wash biscuit & place a walnut on top.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees Celcius until golden brown.
             Comments:-

               (a)  For big biscuit - 40 gm & you can get approximately 16 pieces BUT for this big size you have to flatten the top slightly;

               (b)  For "cute dainty" biscuits - 10 gm & you can get approximately 60 pieces AND you do Not need to flatten the top.

               (c)  Please note that everyone's oven heat is individual so you have to know your own oven :)

                (d)  Please note that for baking; flours, icing sugar etc etc needs to be sieved.

               Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia
