Chinese New Year delights 2013: Honey Joys cookies

Last week, when I blogged about Corn Flakes Cookies, there were 2 readers saying that they love those corn flakes coated with honey butter. I think my two girls would like this type of cookies too.

These honey joys in fact is the most simplest cookies that everyone can make it, but it is not that easy to bake it. If the baking time is too short, the cookies will not be harden and crispy enough. If the baking time is too long, the cookies will be burned and turn dark.The baking time is also vary depending on individual oven.
The background is April most recent drawing with water colour. I like this drawing of her very much.

I decorated my honey joys with some colourful balls. I see others using raisin and sesame seeds too.

    1. When she ate it, she hid behind the couch, far from her brother's sight because she didn't want to share.

    2. But then, the little brother caught her munching on the cookies and demanded to have one. She quickly gave negative response that the cookies was not tasty :p

      Poor brother kena conned and refused the cookies.
