My third cookies for CNY is ... Pistachio Maple-Syrup Butter Crisps, I name it 开心糖浆酥！I baked this crisps because Gabriel likes butter crisps and the recipe is simple. The butter crisps recipe is taken from The Australian Women's Weekly: Maple-Syrup Butter Cookies.
Recipe adapted from The Australian Women's Weekly: cupcakes & cookies
250g butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
160ml maple syrup
220g plain flour
some roasted pistachios (I did it old fashion way; used the pounder, pounded the pistachios into small pieces)
1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line the oven trays with baking paper.
2. Beat butter, extract and maple syrup in small bowl wth electric mixer until light and fluffy; stir in combined sifted flours.
3. Spoon mixture into piping bag, pipe the mixture 3cm apart onto trays. Sprinkle pistachios on it.
4. Bake crisps about 15-20 mins; cool on trays.
