I know what you are thinking!

Yup, the purple is back. Hahaha.. but fret not, you might, just might see this colour once this year, promise.. unless i’m feeling creative or craving for something purple. :)

I actually made this last year too but instead of using purple sweet potato, i used the usual orange hue ones. I have zero intention to bake any Chinese New Year goodies this year but since i had a few purple sweet potatoes sitting around in the fridge, i thought why not, especially when i had promised AromaCookery some of these since last year’s CNY. *facepalm*

Thankfully i could still squeeze out an hour or two to bake this despite the crazy schedule. What i did was, sacrifice one of my precious yoga sessions. ;)

Purple Sweet Potato Cookies with Sesame Seeds

165g flour
1/2 cup sweet potato puree
1 egg
120g butter
85g caster sugar
85g sesame seeds – i mixed both white and black
1 tsp vanilla

Method

1. Cream butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and whisk well.
2. Add flour and puree. Mix well.
3. Mix in sesame seeds and rum. Shape it into a roll or log. Refrigerate for at least half hour.
4. Cut dough into 0.5cm thick. Place them on greased baking tray and bake at 180C for 15 minutes.

—————————–

Looking at the ingredients, one can tell that this cookie is somewhat pretty kind to the waistline eh? ;)

And quite nutritious too!

As I love sesame seeds like crazy, especially the black ones, i thought the addition of them into the cookies would go swimmingly well with the potatoes and it did. The seeds totally elevated the level of addiction to the cookies but at the same time, it sorta robbed away the sweet potato taste too unfortunately. What you can do is to cut down on the sesame seeds but personally, i won’t do that because i love the cookies as it is for now. ;)

Sharp eyes you might find the photos a little different this time round especially the lighting. That’s because i’ve got a new ‘workstation’!

After going through some of the photos, methinks the old ‘workstation’ is still better, plus, the old workstation puts me into styling mood better too. New workstation is a tad squeezy for me, i no like.

Last but not least…

Gong Hei Fatt Choi everyone!

FATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT ahhhh!!!!!!!
