Semperit Cookies

My baking project was on-going. Surely a promising start with the peanut cookies, pineapple tarts, chocolate chilli cookies, suji cookiesvanilla cookies before baking these semperit cookies - a sheer pleasure for the truly melt-in-the-mouth texture. Crumbles off just like that the moment you pop a cookie in your mouth. By far, semperit is a must have for Hari Raya. Then again, the trend has picked up for other festivals as well. 

Making the cookies wasn't like how I anticipated. Not so much about forming the dough with the 3 types of flour, butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla essence. But pressing out the dough after stuffing inside the long metal mould which almost caused me to flip flop. My mistake. I didn't know which mould to buy. To save money, I bought the basic and cheapest one. That's why I struggled. Also, I stuffed more than enough dough inside the mould hoping I can quickly finished off with pressing out the flat edgy ribbon shape. Wrong check-mate.The mould couldn't hold, slipped through my hands, the dough oozed out from the top and lah! lah! lah! I had to go over and over until that close to perfect without breaking off. Anyway, the story ends now for I baked and packed the cookies in the plastic cannisters. Tiring indeed.  
150g butter
55g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla essence
120g all purpose flour
50g corn flour
80g custard flour
Sugar sprinkles (for decoration)

Combine the 3 types of flour and keep aside.
Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add yolk and vanilla, continue to cream.
Sift flour mixture over.
Fold/beat on low speed till combined.
Pinch out a bit of the dough and insert into the mould. 
Press out the long ribbon shape(s) individually on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Do the same to the rest of the dough.
Decorate with sugar sprinkles.
Bake at 160C for 20 minutes or till golden yellow.
