This is my third year baking these German Crunch cookies for Chinese New Year.  But the post only manage to surface this year.  Why?  To support blogger friend Lena  of Frozen Wings for her event on CNY cookies -  January 2014 lor!  Lame excuse!  hehe....   The most important it did made it to my lazymama's blog!  ^_^    The recipe for Melt in the mouth German Crunch  with added chocolate rice is here to stay!  
My previous German Crunch are one with original flavors and another one with coffee flavors.

80gms icing sugar  糖粉  ( I used 70 gms only)
some chocolate rice (Optional)

Sieve together
250 gms potato flour  马铃薯粉
100 gms plain flour  普通面粉
2 tbsp milk powder  奶粉

  1. Beat butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy.
  2. Slowly add in the flour mixture and chocolate rice to form a soft dough.
  3. Chill  the dough in the fridge for 1/2 hour for easy handling.
  4. Roll the dough into small ball on the lined baking tin and press lightly with a fork to form pattern.
  5. Bake in preheated over at 160ºC for about 20 minutes.


1. 把牛油和糖粉打均匀
2. 加入其他材料徐徐加入并混合成软团。
3. 把面团搓成一粒粒排放在铺了烘培纸的烤盘上,  再用叉轻轻压一压
4. 放进预热烤箱, 160c烘20分钟.
