kay, don't be mislead by the word 'Walnut' here. It DOES NOT contain any walnut. Only flour, sugar, oil and a little of alkaline water and butter to make this crunchy~licious Hup Tou Soh. Don't believe, right?
I too, was skeptical about this recipe. "How can a Hup Tou Soh not containing any walnut? Then how come it tasted like walnut cookies? Where does the flavor comes from?" I have so many questions up in my head and I turned to Kimmy from Cooking Pleasure for answers.
Kimmy has just baked her Hup Tou Soh cookies recently and she has also baked Hup Tou Soh cookies WITH walnuts before, so she is the perfect person to ask. According to Kimmy, this version is better and she has no regret baking them. After hearing her, I was more confident to try this recipe.
saltiness in between the sweetness in each bite. And these cookies are really crunchy.
However, if I were to compared with the Hup Tou Soh I had before, these cookies are lacking of the walnut flavor (for the obvious reason). But definitely I have no regret baking these crunchy~licious Hup Tou Soh for it only took a few simple ingredients for these yummy cookies.
