My Chinese cookies post should almost come to an end in a few days and I will be concentrating to bake my Chinese New Year cookies. Meanwhile, I have many savoury dishes recipes lined up for the readers…Some will include the usage of excessive egg whites that you have while baking Chinese New Year recipes.
In recent years, salted egg yolk cookies are rather common after being promoted by other bloggers though I have only seen it this year. Imagining the taste, I tell myself I must give it a try since I have all the ingredients at home..
After baking so many cookies for these two years, to be exact at least 30-40 types of cookies, I believed that I can easily come out with a recipe that is acceptable to suit my taste buds.
My experiment was extremely rewarding, it is a really melt in the mouth cookies that have some buttery salted egg yolk taste. I really loved this sandy cookie as it tastes rather different from the others.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Servings: About 50 small cookies
2 salted cooked egg yolk (if uses salted raw egg yolk, will need to steam until firmed)
60 grams of butter
70 grams of plain flour or all purpose flour
30 grams of milk powder
30 grams of potatoes starch
30 grams of icing sugar
1 egg yolk for egg washing
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds for decorating
STEPS OF PREPARATION
Pre-heat oven to 165 degree Celsius.
Cream the butter, icing sugar and salted egg yolk until light and fluffy. Sift in all the flours (milk powder, potatoes starch and plain flour). Fold until it form a pliable dough. Transfer to a lightly floured surface. Roll to about 1 cm thickness.
Use your preferred mould to mould the dough. Transfer to the baking tray. Egg wash (1 egg yolk with 2 drop of water) and sprinkle with some sesame seeds (Black or white). Bake in the pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes for 165 degree Celsius. Let the cookies rest in the baking tray completely before store in an air tight container. Note that this cookies is very fragile when it is hot. Even when cooled, handle with care as it is sandy and melt in the mouth.
This is a rather sticky dough, pat your hands or dust the dough with more flour during shaping. You may need to floured the mould too before shaping.
Another simple recipe and I did not regret preparing this. It is a rather rich cookie as salted egg yolk blends extremely well with butter as opposed to the use of vegetable shortening. The cookies are supposed to be sandy and melt in the mouth with salted egg yolk buttery aroma.

i am looking for salted egg yolk pistachio cookies and i found this. can i just add-on pistachio but how to ensure it’s not too dry after adding the nuts?
I think you can sub the flour with some pistachios
I am so happy to find this recipe. I used to buy these cookies for CNY but subsequently lost contact with the seller. Now that I’ve started baking, I can finally bake them myself! Can I just double the recipe if I want to bake more? Thanks in advance for your advice 🙂
Of course you can
Thank you. Hope my cookies will turn out as nice as yours 🙂
可能你的粉是新粉，吸水力不强。可以试一试先烘一个，若跑型很离谱，可以加多1-2 tablespoon 的粉。
