I tried to make the Korean bean paste cookies this time.
That's 2lbs beans and I peeled individual bean lol.
It took me about 4 hours just to peel the goddam beans and my hands are so sore now 😭
After 4 hours of peeling, I used only a tiny portion and made it into a paste.
I boiled the beans until they become soft, used the blender to make them into creamy substance, added sugar and salt, and boiled/stair it for over 30min until it became harder.
Wow, I did not expect this much labor on this such a simple food.
I added some food coloring and they look beautiful!
So, I tried to make the bean paste flower cookies.
This is my first time making these.
They look ugly but not bad for the first time try xD!
I need to practice a lot.
My favorite flower.
This one looks beautiful!
I made all these flowers....
And they tasted horrible.
Like, they weren't edible 😂😂😂
I just threw them away......
And here's the second batch I made!
I started all over again, trying to get the right amount of ingredients.
I couldn't find a proper recipe for this type of cookie, so I've been wing it lol.
The second batch wasn't bad at all!!
They taste a little close to what I want them to be.
I think I need to bake a little longer next time.
