Peony Jade, the premium fine-dining establishment located at Clarke Quay and Keppel Club, has introduced a series of new CNY cookies flavors in addition to its regular hot sellers such as Pineapple Tarts and Durian Nian Gao. One of the new flavors is the Spicy Chilli Chicken Floss Cookies ($28.80 per tin).
These thinly sliced treats might not look attractive but definitely packed a punch above the rest. One bite and I was sold. The spicy and numbing effect inundated the taste buds right away but powerfully invited me to take on the second and third round of challenge. Not recommended for the weak chilli hearts but these delicate crumbles will impress as something different from the usual sweet snacks.
Being a close hybrid of closed Pineapple Tarts, the filling of the Concealed Premium Date Tarts ($25.50/tin) is less sweet and the buttery pastry shell has just the right amount of salt. This would be a strong contender against their pineapple tarts if the pastry was less dry and the date filling was not so gummy.
From now to 17 February, Peony Jade is selling their cookies and other assorted CNY goodies at Takashimaya Basement. For more details, visit : http://www.peonyjade.com/index.html
