made these 'cigarettes' with the few egg whites left from making kueh bangkit!

the batter is really simple to prepare. but when it came to rolling them up it was a challenge. it was hot hot hot! haha but he did most of the rolling cos i did a bad job. see those on the right! and since they harden very quickly after taking them out of the oven, you've got to be really fast. just like making love letters.

surprisingly he was quite good at it :p

sadly these cookies don't keep very well. so it's best eaten the same day. somehow they soften the next day despite being kept in an air-tight container. so eat it straight out from the oven while it's still crispy :)

a lot of hard work baking this. but most importantly we had fun!

Recipe adapted from Alex Goh's Joy of Making Cookies:

130g butter
100-110g icing sugar
3 egg whites
100g plain flour

1. Cream butter and icing sugar till light.
2. Add egg whites and cream till smooth.
3. Drop a tbspful of the mixture into tray lined with baking paper and spread it evenly (as thin as possible), allowing for 4 per tray for easier handling. (that's the tedious part!)
4. Bake at 170 deg celcius for about 10-12 mins till edges are lightly brown.
5. Remove it from tray by spatula. Roll IMMEDIATELY around a cylindrical rod (or chopsticks will do). Leave until set.
