Salted Yolk Cookies~ one of the new cookies (the other one is Seaweed Cookies) I made this year for CNY. Salted yolk refers to the yolk of an salted egg. I love salted yolk. I can’t believe I waited this long to try out this recipe. The cookies are flaky and not too grainy. Even my family that ewes at salted yolk loves the cookies. One tip~ because of the richness of salted yolks, I suggest to keep the cookie size small (preferably one small bite size), and serve with a cup of tea.
