Plastic Wrap Tips

Posted on March 17, 2017 by agustina Tan

Plastic wrap is one of the most useful items in the kitchen. However, unrolling it can be annoying especially when it gets tangled on itself while you are unrolling it. Or it won’t stick to the surface. Sounds familiar?

Don’t get frustrated! Here are some ways to fix them.


Store the plastic wrap in the fridge just like professional chefs do to make it much easier to control. Cool food wrap behaves better, sticking and tearing less.
Wipe a few drops of water to the surface to be wrapped. You will notice that it will be much easier to cling to the side.

Or you can buy plastic wraps that come with built-in cutters

No Bake Oreo Balls

Ingredients

2 cups of semi-sweet white chocolate

2 sleeves (30 cookies) of vanilla Oreo cookies (Separate some of the white cream for later use)

113 gr (1/2 bar) of cream cheese, at room temperature

½ cup dark chocolate (Optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Place the Oreo cookies into a zip lock bag and crush them using a roller pin. You can also use a food processor if you have one.
  2. Put the crushed cookies into a bowl and add in the cream cheese. Mix it well until you get a wet, sandy mixture.
  3. Using a spoon, scoop up a heaping tsp of the mixture. Place it into the palm of your hand and roll it into a ball. Set it aside on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. You can roll in the white Oreo cream from earlier for the filling, if desired. Repeat the process for the remaining mixture. Place the balls in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes.

4.  Put the white chocolate into a bowl. Melt it in a microwave or double boiler (preferred since we want to use low heat) and keep stirring. After the chocolate is melted and smooth, remove it from the heat. Save some into a piping bag for later decoration (optional), you may also do this for the dark chocolate.

5. Take the Oreo balls out of the freezer and place a toothpick into the center of each ball. Pick up a ball and dip it into the melted chocolate. Using a spoon to drizzle more of the chocolate over the top so the entire ball is covered. Set it aside on the parchment paper. Drizzle the dark chocolate on top. Repeat this process for all of the balls and allow them to harden for a few minutes, or you can put them to the freezer for 15 mins.6. Your No Bake Oreo Balls

CHICKEN-SHAPED PINEAPPLE TARTS

Posted on February 03, 2017 by agustina Tan

Chicken Shape Pineapple Tarts for the Year of Rooster

Makes 40 Pcs | Prep time: 1 ½  hour | Cook time: 20 mins

Ingredients

125g salted butter, at room temperature

2 egg yolks

2 cups all-purpose flour

20g corn flour

½ cup of powdered sugar

1tbsp milk powder

 

600g pineapple flesh

4tbsp of sugar

 

Heart-shaped decorative sugar

Black sesame

Making the Pineapple Filling

Slice the pineapple flesh into pieces, then blend until puree. Cook on medium heat on a non-stick pot, and stir continuously to avoid burning.  When it almost dry, add the sugar and mix well. Continue to stir on lowest heat until the pineapple filling turns golden and sticky. Set it aside to cool, and then chill in the fridge for 30 mins.

Making the Pastry

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the egg yolk one at a time and beat until well combined. Mix in all the dry ingredients (the milk powder, corn flour, and all-purpose flour) to form the pastry dough.

Combining the Filling and Pastry

Divide the pastry dough to 10g and the pineapple filling for 8g. Roll them both into balls. Use your palm to roll out the dough and flatten it. Add a pineapple ball in the middle and wrap them by folding the edges and rolling it into a ball to cover the filling.

Place them on a baking paper. Brush the top by using the egg yolk. Decor it using the heart shaped decorative sugar and black sesame to form a chicken look.
