Kuih Mo Mo/Kuih Makmur/Ghee Cookies 久违了~年饼。莫莫饼

西马东海岸一带的人称为Kuih Makmur,在东马我们叫它Kuih Momo。
奇怪的是大家都叫Kuih (糕),但事实它却是饼干,还是东马人的年饼!
从小到大我都爱吃这款莫莫饼!不过中间也错过了好几年。。。
我今年决定把这款饼干学起了,以后每年保证都可以吃到,呵呵!
对Mui Mui 家的这个食谱,相当满意!谢谢她让我从温回记忆中的好味道!
This is Kuih Makmur, a delicacy originated from East Cost of Peninsular Malaysia but in the other part of East Malaysia, we called it Kuih Mo Mo. It sound strange we called it kuih (cake) even though it resemble more to a cookies. It is normally being serve during CNY in my hometown and has been one of my favorite since those childhood days. I have long forgotten about this traditional delicacies after moving to KL and by chance, happen to be "reunited" with it through a blog. 
Since I have decided to go ahead with making this cookies in order to inherit the tradition. I'm very satisfy with Mui Mui's kuih mo mo recipe. Thanks her for bringing me back to that long lost taste :)
Kuih Mo Mo/Kuih Makmur/Ghee Cookies 莫莫饼
(Recipe source : My little favourite DIY)
Makes : 58 pcs (6g each)

250g plain flour
30g dry milk powder
130g 'QBB' brand ghee

Icing sugar or glucose, for rolling the balls

Method :
  1. Fried the plain flour in a wok without oil until it is fluffy and dried. Sifted.
  2. Add milk powder into the fried flour and mixed ghee in, to form into a soft dough. The dough will be just nice to roll into small balls (5~6g each)
  3. Arrange the balls into baking trays and bake at 160c for 15 minutes.
  4. Be careful these cookies are very fragile when they're hot from oven or warm.
  5. Let the cookies cool a little before sifting icing sugar or glucose onto them and coated them evenly before storing in a container.

  2. Esther,我应该没有吃过莫莫饼,哈哈!
    请问材料里没有加糖,就只是靠着裹在外糖粉的甜而已?谢谢!

    1. Hi Sharon, 是的。里面可以不用加糖, 不过外糖粉一定要充分的裹着饼干! 也有些食谱里面加糖, 不过我觉得不需要, 甜度很足够了! :)

    3. Hi Sharon,
      我来八婆一下。。呵呵!
      在马来同胞的饼这个莫莫是叫做kueh makmur。里面有花生碎做馅料。
      在我们东马就叫kueh momo。可能念makmur念不准,走音了变momo。。哈哈哈!
      其实是一样的只是一个有馅另一个没馅罢了!
