Biskut Samprit

Pix by Asma

This is Samprit. It has been one of the many staple cookies during Hari Raya in many households since as far as I can remember. It is still popular but not many people knows how to make it as it can rather tedious. But in actual fact, samprit is one of the easiest cookies to make and the ingredients are easy to find.

In fact my husband has been bragging that he too know how to make a good and tasty samprit (which he claimed he did before we got married). Unfortunately, until this very day, we have yet to taste his famous samprit. Ye la tu!!!!! He doesn't even help me when I'm making samprit nowadays. Haaah!

I've been making samprit for quite a number of years. Not too long ago, I even sell samprit during Raya. Not this year though but I still have to make quite "banyak" for my mother, MIL, sisters and aunts... jadik buah tangan Raya. For those who wants to make a samprit for Open House.. here's the recipe:

25og butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup flour
1 cup corn flour

Beat the butter and icing sugar until fluffy
Add egg yolk and the flours
Use the samprit mold and press slowly onto the baking pan
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 100-150C

Use butter instead of margarine
Don't over mix the "adunan" as it may make your samprit out of shape
Be patient... it takes quite a while to get the hang of mooulding sampriit into the desired shape
Add more flour if the texture is too soft
