Have you heard of Jenny Bakery? It is a very famous bakery shop in Hong Kong, selling butter cookies.
I received a box of Jenny Bakery’s butter cookies from my friend, who returned from Hong Kong. And wow, it’s really yummy!! The cookies had this buttery scent. Coupled with the crisp yet melty texture from the cookie – this IS the cookie for cookie lovers!

Since I woke up early this morning, I was happy to have some time on my own, to bake cookies for the CNY. Though it seems like we won’t be receiving any visitors at home, I still feel that it’s “necessary” to have some cookies and mandarin oranges at home (for display perhaps?! haha).

There are a lot of Jenny bakery copycat cookies recipes on the Internet. So I was glad I chose this easy recipe, which is not too bad!
I added in some purple sweet potato powder to get this light purplish/pinkish hue. It’s quite fit for the festive mood right?
- 147 g Prima plain flour
- 3 g cornstarch
- 150 g butter, slightly softened at room temperature
- 23 g icing sugar
- 1.5 to 2 tsp purple sweet potato powder, optional
Place softened butter into mixing bowl. Add in icing sugar. Whisk till combined.
Add in flour and cornstarch. Mix well.
If you would like to make a 2 tone cookie, remove slightly less than 1/2 of the cookie dough into another bowl. Add in purple sweet potato powder and mix well.
Place original cookie dough into piping bag (only on 1 side), fitted with Wilton 2D nozzle (or any nozzle preferred). Place the colored cookie dough into the other side of the piping bag.
Pipe out cookie dough onto lined baking tray. Bake in preheated oven at 160C for 15-20 mins, or till evenly browned.
Cool completely on wire rack before storing in air tight container.
The cookie will hold up better after baking if the dough is chilled. So it's better to pipe the cookie dough in 2 batches. This is to reduce the warmth of your hand "melting" the dough as you pipe.
