Wan Pin Kou

It snowed so badly yesterday and today and i am snowed in. I made this as the whiteness of this snack sort of resembled the snow. This is a very traditional snack of yesteryears. It used to be in a rectangular cut shaped snack packed in pink paper and i wonder if it is still so. There is no flavorings or colorings whatsoever, just sweet and white, that is why it is packed in pink paper cos chinese associates white with death. I think this snack looks more appealing with patterns and a filling to enhance the taste. It is easy and fun to make but has to be consumed when freshly made as it will get hardened fast in high altitude, even in air-tight containers, perhaps it is better at sea-level places.

100 gm. Koh fun (cooked glutinous rice flour)
80 gm. icing sugar
20 gm. Crisco shortening
1/4 tsp. Vanillin powder
30 - 40 gm. cold water
Hawflakes/Chopped roasted peanuts/Pineapple Jam

Mix all the ingredients for the cookie together - it should look like breadcrumbs, add more water if you have to.
Fill mould with some koh fun mixture, place some filling on top then fill mould with more koh fun mixture
Press hard to have a very vivid pattern, remove excess if there is any and knock it to remove.
This cookie/snack is ready for serving.
