My CNY baking 4. This is the last baking of the day. The Afghan Biscuits *also from the same source :) v-recipes* To be honest, I actually in rushed and forgotten to taste them, no need to worry, I still keep a box for myself :)
But I'm sure they are delicious. I heard from my untie it was the kids' favourite when they *pay nien* to my house :)
