IMG_5961something different for my chinese new year… and something to bring back home to the sunny singapore that had been extremely wet! (๑>ᴗ<๑)

Recipe adapted and translated from Min’s Blog


IMG_5955250g unsalted butter
80g icing sugar, sifted
250g potato starch
100g flour
poppy seeds (as desired)


IMG_5952– cream softened butter and sifted icing sugar together till well incorporated
– add in potato starch, flour and poppy seeds and form into a dough
– divide dough into small portions and shape into a round ball. use a fork to press the cookie slightly, making impressions on the surface
– bake cookie for 15-20 mins in preheated oven of 170 degrees C

Personal notes:

IMG_5954– to shape the above cookie:

  • umbrella shaft (A): colour 4g dough with egg yellow powder and roll out to a L 7cm x W 1cm sheet. freeze
  • umbrella top (B): colour 3g dough with egg yellow powder and roll into a 7 cm log. freeze
  • umbrella handle (C): colour 10g dough with dark cocoa powder and roll out to a L7 cm x W 3cm sheet. keep at room temperature
  • umbrella cover (D): colour 2 portions of 13g dough with dark cocoa powder and 3 portions of 13g dough with red yeast powder. shape into a tall triangular shape measure H 2.5cm x L 7cm x W 1cm. keep cocoa portions under room temperature and chill the pink portions
  • roll 8g of original dough to a L7 cm x W 3cm sheet (E). keep at room temperature
  • meantime, cling wrap and keep the rest of cookie dough at room temperature
  • assemble umbrella but placing (D) together, alternating between cocoa and pink dough. wrap and freezel for 10 mins
  • take (E) and make a 1cm U-shape fold inwards. then wrap this, with (C) such that (C) is forms a U outside (E). slice off additional dough
  • attach (A) to the side of the above. wrap careful and freeze for 10 mins. this forms the handle of the umbrella
  • remove umbrella cover and handle from freezer. attach handle to cover and use some original dough to secure the handle in place
  • attach umbrella top (B) to the top of umbrella and use some more original dough to secure the shape
  • use remaining dough to shape the entire cookie such that it looks like a raindrop
  • cling wrap cookie dough for a few hours (i chilled overnight)
  • slice cookie to desired thickness and bake. my cookies were baked for 15 mins

    Hi Victoria,


    I wonder if you have work in Suga, before… I can stand in front of their stores staring at them making cute lollies with words or prints!!! How you made your cookies is how they made their lollies!!! You have very good imagination to visualise and assemble these designs!!!
