IMG_6434i love beh teh sor… do you? but in china, i haven’t see this around, so make lah… I was a little disappointed with the colour of the filling, but the aroma and taste? i think SD has done a wonderful job tuning it to the traditional taste… my hubby, tried one of these during lunch (just after i baked these), and INSISTED to take the entire batch to office… ヾ(^-^)ノ

– prepare filling by mixing all ingredients together to obtain a soft dough. divide into 20g pieces each (about 15 portions) and set aside
事先准备内陷~所有食材混合成团。分割成 15等份,约 20克一份。待用

  • begin to prepare flaky pastry ~ make water and lard dough separately. rest the water dough for 15-20 mins before using
    准备酥皮~ 水油皮和油酥皮食材各自混合。水油皮需静置 15-20分钟

  • divide into 15 portions each and make sure both dough have about the same pliability/flexibility
    面团各分割成 15克等份并确保各面团柔软性是一致

  • wrap lard dough into a portion of water dough and do the necessary rolling to get the layering. refer to this link for rolling instructions (up to step 11)
    将一份油酥皮裹入水油皮,并擀出卷起。准备酥皮的步骤可参考此链接 (至图11)

  • all in all, you should be doing 2 swiss-rolling process of the dough. rest dough for 15 mins after final roll up
    擀平卷起步骤共两次、最后一次卷起修面 15分钟

  • roll a portion of dough into a flat disc and wrap a portion of filling into it

  • flatting each patty slightly with palm and bake in preheated oven of 210 degrees C for 12-14 mins
    将裹入内陷后的面团用手掌稍微压下,送入预热至 210摄氏度烤箱烤 12-14分钟既可

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_6430– i used 50g light brown sugar, and 50g organic coconut palm sugar. i substituted corn flour with tapioca starch
我用了 50克黄糖、50克有机椰子花糖。粟粉以木薯粉替代

  • i melted the maltose inside 60ml of hot water before using
    使用麦芽糖前,我将其融入于食谱中60毫升的水 (我用了热水)

  • not sure if i did something wrong for the filling, but after mixing everything together, i got a very wet batter. i had to add a handful of cooked glutinous rice flour/tapioca starch to get it into a soft dough. the picture makes the filling look dry but it actually isn’t.. it’s very chewy and soft…

  • i had to bake my patties for 20 mins before they started to brown evenly
    我的香饼用了 20分钟烘焙才均匀上色

IMG_6432very very flaky pastry… accompanied with a slight chewy filling…. this is one snack that makes you go mmmmmmm… (∩❛ڡ❛∩)
