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!

How Are These Cookies Different?
Unlike most cookies that are crunchy, these buttery cookies have slightly crisp edges and also a melt-in-mouth texture.
They also taste quite light, and not greasy. Best to serve with a hot cup of your favourite beverage!
I have also added some purple sweet potato powder into part of the cookie dough, so it has a slight pinkish hue.

What Ingredients Do I Need?
Just easy 5 ingredients to make these delicious cookies!
- Plain Flour
- Unsalted Butter
- Icing Sugar: Icing sugar helps to make these cookies melt-in-mouth. Do not substitute with caster sugar.
- Purple Sweet Potato Powder: This is optional. If you don’t have this powder, you can also use some pink food gel coloring to color the dough pink.
How to Pipe The Dough?
Firstly, you will just need to place the original dough vs the colored dough on opposite sides of the piping bag, so that the colors can be piped out nicely.
There are various ways that you can do the piping. For the rosettes you see here, I am using Wilton 2D nozzle.
Simply start from the centre of the rosette and move outwards in a circle shape, and it will form the rosette. You will need to position your hand with some space above the baking paper to do this.
