Sesame cookie

Have been wanting to try this for awhile now and found the best timing for Chinese New Year. Found this recipe in food4tots on sesame crisps. I made it a little thicker as cookies.

IMG_1833

Makes about 36 pieces

Ingredients

25g egg white, room temperature
20g castor sugar
30g plain flour, sieve twice
20g unsalted butter, melted
90g toasted white sesame seeds

Note: I used 45g white sesame seeds and 45g black sesame seeds or leave the black sesame seeds

Directions

1. Fry (without oil) white sesame seeds in a non stick pan over a medium-low heat until fragrant. I tried frying black sesame seeds together but it turned out to be a little bitter. So, just fry white sesame seeds.

2. Preheat oven at 170°C and line parchment paper on baking tray.

3. Using a medium bowl, whisk egg white (with hand whisk)  until foamy. Add in sugar and continue whisking until sugar dissolves.

4. Stir in melted butter and mix well.

5. Add in flour (all at once) and mix till no traces of flour or no lumps.

6. Fold in toasted sesame seeds with a spatula until mixture is well combined. The mixture should be dry and sticky.

7. Spoon about 1/2 tablespoon of mixture on baking tray and spread out into a round shape using a fork. If you like a thin crisp, spread out the mixture to 1 sesame thick. If you like a thicker cookie (like I did), it’s about 2 sesame thick.

8. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Rotate the baking tray towards the last 2-3 minutes.

9. Remove from oven and let cool. Store them into air tight container.

Enjoy!

The New Tefal Pro Express Total Auto Control GV8960 (RM 1,799)

Tefal, the world’s leading cookware and small home appliances maker introduces the fastest and most efficient ironing technology with the Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 appliance. This new steam station is fitted with Tefal’s latest innovation, the Smart Technology Auto Control, which allows users to have the perfect combination of temperature and steam that will best suit each type of textile in just one touch. By simply pushing one of three buttons, the appliance will automatically adjust to iron all kinds of fabrics: delicate, normal or tough. Since every type of textile is different, each of the three settings provides the right combination of temperature and steam, with extreme accuracy and increased precision for fast and perfect results.

The Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 boasts superior steam performance with a powerful 6 bars pressure for efficient steam penetration into the heart of the fabrics. The ‘Maximum’ position aimed for high steam output is up to 120g per minute catered to ironing tough materials such as jeans. The ‘Power Zone’ steam function produces up to 340g per minute of steam perfect for ironing heavy fabrics.

Additionally, Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 is fitted with an ECO-mode, saving up to 20% of energy compared to the energy consumption at the maximum steam output level.

Unlike regular steam stations and irons, the Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 is equipped with an exclusive new anti-calc collector that collects ultra-thin particles found in water. This efficient anti-calc collector also maintains scale trapped even while moving the station, collecting up to twice the amount of scale collected. The anti-calc collector is designed to increase the longevity of the steam station and retain its efficiency.

The Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 has been improved with the new Glide Protect Autoclean soleplate. Apart from the newly designed shape and lines, it is also built with an exclusive ‘Comfort Tip’ for easy access to hard-to-reach areas. The new Glide Protect Autoclean soleplate still boasts superior glide-ability thanks to its ‘Autoclean’ properties that allows fast and effortless ironing.

The Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 is cleverly designed for storage and ease-of-usage. The steam station has an extra-large removable water tank which can deposit up to 1.8 liters of water. It has an exclusive Integra System for convenient storage of the steam cord, as well as an automatic cord rewinder. In addition, it also comes with a lock system whereby users can safely carry and store the station.

The Tefal Pro Express® Total Auto Control GV8960 will be available in main department stores and electrical specialists February 2014 at the retail price of RM1,799.
