[Recipe] Pork Floss Cookies Using Airfryer

January 16, 2019 0 Comments A+ a-

Chinese New Year is round the corner again, and I thought it would be a great time to create some new recipes for this occasion.

This year’s savoury Pork Floss Cookies are a little special, as I usually bake sweet cookies. For those unfamiliar with pork floss, it looks a little like a fluffy cotton floss candy, except that it is savoury and (boringly) brown. Made of dried, finely shredded pork and other marinates, it is usually used as toppings for porridge or buns.

It took me quite a few trials to get this recipe right – mainly because I am used to baking sweet cookies and also because the sugar present in pork floss seemed to interfere with the other ingredients in the recipe.

So, do you prefer savoury or sweet cookies? Let me know your thoughts in the Comments below. Enjoy!

Pork Floss Cookies

Yield: 16 cookies

60g butter, softened at room temperature
10g caster sugar
70g flour
1/2 tsp salt
30g pork floss

1) Cream.
Cream butter and sugar together.

2) Mix.
Mix in the flour to form a soft dough.

3) Combine.
Add the pork floss & salt and mix further.

Tips: If your pork floss is bunched up, use a fork to loosen them up first.
4) Chill.
Divide the dough into 2 portions. Wrap the 2 portions up in cling wrap. Freeze for 15 min till the dough firms up. The dough, when firmed up, becomes easier to shape later.

Tips: I prefer wrapping the dough up in roll form, so it is easier for slicing later.
5) Preheat.
Meanwhile, preheat airfryer at 150 degrees Celsius for 5 min.

6) Slice
When the dough rolls are firmed up, slice them into 1-cm thickness each.

Tips: Alternatively, you may roll the dough out flat into 1-cm thickness and use your cookie cutters to create beautiful shapes.
7) Bake.
Bake in airfryer at 150 degrees Celsius for 11-13 minutes until golden-brown. Enjoy!
