MELT-IN-THE-MOUTH ROSELLE BITES



We love melt-in-the-mouth cookies.
I have this little Roselle Bites 
to share with you.

When you bite into these mini cakes,
you will be surprised to taste the sweet and a little sour roselle filling.

However, roselle filling is bright red 
which is an auspicious colour for the Chinese New Year!

I have adapted this recipe from Sonia a.k.a. Nasi Lemak's recipe

Roselle

Roselle Bites
175g butter
50g condensed milk
255g all purpose flour
1 egg yolk

egg wash: 1 egg yolk+1 tsp milk
Roselle Filling, roll into little balls

1. cream butter and condensed milk till light
2. add in egg yolk, beat until combined
3. fold in sifted flour, mix to a soft & not sticky dough
4. roll into 8g balls & wrap filling
5. arrange on parchment lined baking tray, apply egg wash
6. bake in preheated oven 165'C for 25min until golden
7. cool completely before storing

                           70g sugar
                           250g water

Thanks for sharing!!! It looks really amazing!

Katie Foong: Thank you. Actually, I let my friends try
and they suggest that I should make open tarts to show off
the filling instead of wrapping it up! I am going to try that soon.
