Salty Yolk Cookies

From "Salted Egg Yolk Fish Skin Crisps", let's move on to Salted Egg Yolk Cookies.

It all started when my friend went to Taiwan and bought this cookie for us to try. It is quite small, smaller than a standard teaspoon.

The cookie looks like this.

Side view: It is quite thin and very crispy. If you like to eat lao sar bao, you will like this cookie as it has the rich creamy taste of salted egg yolk.

Then I saw this different brand being sold in our local supermarkets so I bought a pack to try. The size is the same as the brand my friend bought and it tastes just as good. This pack (230 grams) costs about MYR 18 but I did not count the number of individually packed cookies in it.  

Then I bought this bag of individually packed Salted Egg Yolk Malt Sugar Biscuits (24 biscuits) at a specialty shop that sells products from Taiwan at MYR 13.90 nett.

The biscuit is smaller than a teaspoon. The salted egg yolk taste is found in the layer of malt sugar sandwiched between two biscuits.

The layer of malt sugar is quite thin and could be quite hard so it takes a while to soften in the mouth. Some of my friends like it and some don't. I can't decide whether I like it or not. I feel that the malt taste does not go well with the salted egg yolk taste but some of my friends said the taste is quite acceptable.

  9. I really salute Taiwan as they are good and innovative in producing all the variety of snack food.
    Talking about salted eggs, I was dumbfounded when someone replied my question on the crazy trend now to coat everything with salted eggs and not salted duck eggs. I was told that you just need to add salt into the yolks. Faints!

  10. I try not to be a fan of salted egg since always think of the cholesterol.

    1. If you eat in small portions and always exercise, then no need to think of the cholesterol. Perhaps you would be interested to read the "cholesterol myth" book.

    2. Ya I know the finding that diet doesn't actually affect your cholesterol. But old thinking dies hard...
