Hey guys you remember our first post on Yip’s by Andik Nurdiany and some of the pastry goodies we tried right? Well, not only do they have more pastries for us to try (soon), they also have a wide range of Festive Cookies for us to enjoy!!
Well, they’ve actually got a lot more variety than that but we’re gonna go through just some with you now including a very very unique and special one! I think we’ll save that one for last! (kasi suspense sikit)
Okay let’s start from the top.
|Pineapple Tarts ($16.00 per bottle)|
It doesn’t matter what festive season it might be.
Chinese New Year? Hari Raya? Deepavali? Christmas? You’re almost definitely going to see some Pineapple Tarts somewhere or rather. I think there’s just something about Pineapple Tarts that connect us all. They come in all funny shapes and sizes and version nowadays but in the end, it’s a Pineapple Tart.
Yip’s Pineapple Tarts are definitely very generous with the pineapple filling as you can see.
The ratio of pineapple to pastry is pretty much even from what we gather and no complaints from us!
The pineapple filling itself is not too sweet and the pastry is buttery but does not overwhelm you.
Just the right balance for those who prefer a lighter snack!
We normally have a hard time finding a decent traditional Pineapple Tart nowadays and often buy a different version (as you may have read from our previous posts) but at least now we know where we can get some steady Pineapple Tarts!
|Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cheddar Cheese Biscuits ($18.00 per bottle)|
I love cheese. And I love cheesy pastries and cookies.
I’ve had some pretty decent cheese cookies in the past but this was definitely something different.
Yip’s version is kinda like a flower biscuit shape opposed to the type I normally have which is in stick version. But the good news is – it’s still cheesy! It’s not the strong salty type of cheese taste which is going to make you ‘muak’ so fast. This one is kind of salty-sweet and buttery and the cranberry piece on top gives you a nice sweet hint at the end.
I kept popping this one by one by one. Simply could not stop!!
|Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies ($16.00 per bottle)|
This was my darling wife’s favourite and I can see why!
Delicious chocolate taste when you chomp down on the cookies. The cookie dough is chocolate and you’ll also get the chocolate chips embedded within! And if that’s no enough, macadamia nut halves! And as you can see, they’re not stingy with the macadamia nuts okay! If you don’t see one on the surface, it’s probably hiding from you within the cookie!!
|Macadamia Nut Butter Cookies ($17.00 per bottle)|
If you’re not such a big chocolate fan (sure or not???), do not fret!
Yip’s also has a butter version for those that still want to enjoy macadamia nut cookies without the chocolate element. Pure butter enjoyment waiting for you here! AND LOOK AT THOSE NUTS!!
And here’s a fact for you – Yip’s uses ONLY BUTTER in all their cookies, puffs and pastries! No margarine allowed!!
|Melt-In-Your-Mouth Almond Cookies ($18.00 per bottle)|
This was the bomb. And the bombs went in my mouth!
I’ve always been a fan of crumbly almond cookies and I can safely say we’ve come across one of the best here. Nice little bite-sized pieces of almond and butter goodness that you’re probably not going to be able to stop from eating if you’re a big fan of almond cookies.
That’s a view of the inside of the cookie. I took half a bite and took a closer look inside.
If you look closely, you can see the layers of almond nut flakes that are packed into that little cookie.
No wonder it’s so nutty and buttery!
And I’m not kidding you – I’m literally eating these cookies as I type this review out!
Anyways now we’ve come to the special cookies that we mentioned at the beginning of our post.
Are you ready? ***JENG JENG JENG***
|Cereal Prawn Cookies ($18.00 per bottle)|
When I first saw this posted on their Instagram, the first thought that came to my mind was “Wow. That’s very errrrr… interesting!” because I’ve never come across a Cereal Prawn Cookie before!
And let me tell you, these unique little cookies are really something else! It’s not just hype and gimmick here because these cookies really pack a punch! Nestum, Japanese dried prawns, curry leaves and CHILLI PADI make up this cookie. No wonder it’s so full of flavour and is actually quite spicy!
Take a big whiff and you’re gonna get a strong smell of chilli and dried prawns that’s gonna get your taste buds activated. These little cookies actually remind me of those little mini Prawn Popiahs we have.
My Mum absolutely loved these cookies and the spicy factor they bring. A nice savoury taste and then chilli kicks in. I believe you chilli lovers out there will like this too!
Yip’s by Andik Nurdiany is really taking things by storm here. We’ve tried some of the pastries and it was the bomb and now their cookies are the bomb too!
And the best thing is they have so many more things that we haven’t had the chance to include in this review!
Love Letters, Cornflake and Raisin cookies, Sugi, Honeycomb and even Almond Bienetta to name a few. And they even have cookies that are 100% Vegetarian-friendly!
Looks like we have a lot more to try at Yips!
So whether it’s for the festive season, looking for a gift for someone or even just buying some snacks for yourself and the family, you should definitely check out Yips!
