Lao Po Bing / Wife’s Biscuit

August 12, 2008

YUM YUM!! I have a love for all the traditional Chinese pastries, but never i have i considered making them myself. =X chanced upon this <recipe> at Florence’s blog, and hey! high reviews rating and it calls for koh fun (glutinous rice flour)! recently got a big bag for my snow skin mooncake making and since i have all the ingredients called for on hand, there’s no reason to reject making these yea? ๐Ÿ˜› oh, and i Used the mooncake mould’s plates to do the prints on the pastries.

I’m SUPER DUPER glad that i did these. *grin* it tasted sooooooooooooo good! Check out the nice flaky pastry crust! Many thanks to Florence for the detailed step by step picture instructions and also this yummy recipe! ๐Ÿ˜€ This recipe yields 12 pieces, >.< NOT enough! i made another 3 batch immediately after dinner. ๐Ÿ˜› for my mum to share with her friends. These are most certainly worth the effort! so what are you waiting for? hope on over to Florence’s blog and bake these!

*UPDATES* the flaky skin stays crispy for 2 days in an air tight container.

  1. I could with a yummy couple right now Mandy…pretty please! Cannot imagine you made this beautiful creation! Such a lovely name too…BTW, here’s what I plan to make next

  2. hi amanda,

    your wife’s biscuits looks very nice. I like your “stamp” on the biscuit too. May i know how does it looks like and where did you get it from?

    Actually i tried to baked this too. But mine turned soft the next day, eventhough i store them in air tight container. But they really taste good!

  3. hi amanda, the pastry looks so professionally done. you should consider selling them!

  4. Hi Amanda,

    Wow! I like your pastry! So flaky and nicely done! I tried making these on Sat but my pastry not as professionally done as yours. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And I had problem wrapping the fillings into the pastry dough. I wonder what’s wrong. Did you cover the pastry while letting it rest? I didn’t and it turn out to be bit dry when I was shaping it. And mine turn up to be small, i mean, after i flatten it, it shrink back to a small flat circle again after a while. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Mui Mui

  5. Deeba! Missed you! *grin* thanks for your kind comments. Japanese honey castella cake! Yum YUm! i cant wait to try that out too~ ๐Ÿ˜› But i heard they belong to those dry tea cake category, issit true?

    Hi Jas, i got used the stamp from the mooncake mould i got from Elyn. ๐Ÿ™‚ yes, i agree they tasted good! but lose their flakyness too fast.

    Yuri, *blush* i’m still far from selling my homemade pastries, alot more to learn ๐Ÿ˜›

    Mui, Yes, u need to wrap up the dough when resting, it was stated in florence blog, u missed that step? mine shrinks abit when it is baking. ๐Ÿ™‚ but overall the shape still stays. try again! i’m sure u will succeed and it is all worth it!

  6. Hi Amanda,

    O yes! I didn’t read carefully and missed out this step of wrapping the dough! Haiz, no wonder. I’m gonna try again, since I still have all the ingredients. Hope I will succeed. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mui Mui

  7. Amanda,

    You have beautiful blog there. I am so inspired to bake these after looking at your tempting pix, even though I have come acrossed these before in Florenceโ€™s.

    I have also just ordered my mooncake plunger from Elyn and would appreciate it if you can tell in more detail how to obtain the imprint on these biscuits with the mooncake plunger.

    Thanking you in advance.

  8. Lovely Lao Po Bing, the layers!

  9. Hi,

    I love your style of photography, always capture the essence of the object so beautifully. I am a sucker for beautiful pictures.

    Your wife’s biscuit is so professionally done – skin looks so flaky and filling moist!I love to bake, but do not do it often, cos I have this huge phobia of putting on weight. I have not eaten wife’s biscuits for years even though it is one of my favourite when I was young.

    Keep up the good work!

  10. natasya, thanks for your kind comments, =) oh, regarding the imprints, i simply just use the plates to flatten the dough.

    Esther, THanks! =)

    Skinnymum, Thanks! yes, i have phobia of gaining weight too, but the joy of baking and trying out recipes is so enjoyable. i cannot resists. so i throw the diet plans out of the window ๐Ÿ˜›

  11. I found Lao Bo Ping recipe long ago. Thank you so much!

  12. Hi Amanda,

  13. hi amanda,

  14. Man, I so wish you would start a shop, so I can BUY these from you! LOL they look so so delicious!

  15. Hi Amanda,

    Chanced upon your blog thru another website. I really think your lo por peng is SUPERBLY done. Would really like to give it a go but can’t seems to find the recipe anywhere. Any chance you may have the recipe somewhere? I hopped over to Florence’s blog but there’s no such recipe to be found. Would appreciate if you can share the recipe with me.

    I love this lo por peng so much that I have been searching for the ultimate one in all of the bakeries I came across. All disappointing… LOL… my dad loves it too. Would love to bake some for him if possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you,

  40. A๏ฟฝThe Stephen Joseph backpack will solve this problem for it comes with a personalize design.

    Many times if you use our suggestion you will find that the quality backpacks are the same price as the cheaply made backpacks.
    Backpacks come in a variety of designs, forms, shapes and colors.

  41. Don’t be fooled through the plastic frame of the blending wand attachment, because there are stainless steel blades beneath it. Kneading doughs genuinely are achievable doubly quickly like done with your hands, but with exactly the same quality of results. Will you put it to use for large numbers of food or perhaps creating treats by yourself.

  42. Different services can help you find the perfect place for you and advice you
    what to do to reach it. Distinctive and fashionable, baby
    diaper bags in camo designs are perfect for dad. You will want to check out the belt to the
    backpack carrier to see if it is long enough to adjust for your comfort.

  43. To have coffee with your machine initially you have to boil some water in the first or
    second chamber. With dozens of options of coffeemaker now it is possible to
    choose the one that will suit in your personal need. If you don’t have time and energy to drink all in the coffee that you would like to drink in the home, it is possible to brew just one cup that it is possible to take to go so you won’t
    have any type of mess to wash up when you get home.

  44. You be aware of type, and you also probably determine you’re considered one of them. 45 in – Hg) and will display a graphical image of pressure tendency and pressure differential. They in addition have achieved another important aim, those of pricing their watches so as to accommodate the pockets of all folks.

  45. It should be noted that while Google has targeted many article distribution sites, you
    will not be penalized for having your content on these sites- the
    more likely possibility will be these back links will have less power and thus be
    less effective- so there is no need to remove any of your content from these sites.

    If he makes any mistake in choosing the right SEO company, the website
    will stay behind thousands of other websites and will remain invisible to the worldwide
    internet users. Most companies hire a dedicated SEO specialist to manage their
    website on the internet, which is why there is a constant demand for good SEO experts.

  46. The color combination is yet another vital issue of concern.
    If the basket has received damage, for example being bent or cracked, stop the repair process immediately and do not waste your
    time. Some will almost always default on the local local electronics super chain.

  47. Hi the recipe link is no longer available. Do you still have the recipie to make this lao PO Binga. Also can you share how you stamp on the biscuit?
