Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

IMG_6361 – i used a 3cm cookie scoop and made 74 cookies
我用直径 3厘米曲奇勺,做了 74颗曲奇

– i baked my cookies in 3 batches: first; based on Vivian’s tips, to bake cookies at 170 degrees C for 14 mins (i baked mine for 18 mins); then turning off the oven and leaving the cookies in the oven for 10 mins before removing. second batch was bake for 180 degrees C for 10 mins, and then leaving in oven for 10 mins after turning it off; and finally, based on reading from some bloggers notes, the secret to FA cookies is to bake them at low temperature for 160 degrees C, for 20-25 mins. i baked mine for 25 mins, and removed them from the oven. the outcome was, all of them are equally crispy, but the third batch of cookies yielded a nicer browning as compared to a dull and lighter brown from the first 2 batches
我的曲奇分三批烘烤:第一批,根据 Vivian 的贴士,先用 170摄氏度烤箱烤 14分钟(我烤了 18分钟),后将烤箱熄火再让曲奇在烤箱内静置 10分钟再取出。第二批,用了 180摄氏度烤 10分钟、熄火,曲奇在烤箱静置 10分钟后取出。最后一种烘焙方式,是参考了无数网友的贴士后采纳滴~据说烘焙这 FA 曲奇关键在于以低温烘焙 10-25分钟。我烤了 25分钟,直接出炉。结论》三批的曲奇全部一样脆,但相比之下,第三批上色较均匀并光亮

– the cookie dough is not the sticky kind and is easy to scoop ~ i then hand rolled some into balls, and left some as it is after releasing them from ice cream scoop. i think the ones that have been left unrolled are nicer (the rolled ones reminded me of shortbread kisses)
面团不是沾手那种,特别好使~有些我直接用手滚圆,有些用曲奇勺直接勺至烤盘上后没有“再加工整形”。我觉得那些没“再加工” 滴卖相较好

    When CNY, I was thinking to bake this cookie, but the end still not done! Thanks for remind me again.

    By looking at the recipe title I knew I must try this recipe. Different baking time give same result, crispy cookies. I think the addition of corn flour do the trick. Thanks for the shout out. Have a great day!
