Purple sweet potato egg white butter cookies 紫薯蛋白奶油饼干 (中英加图对照食谱)

Using the purple sweet potato powder I made 2 weeks ago, I have baked these butter cookies and am happy that it turned out a beautiful purplish pink which is acheived by using all natural colouring and nothing artificial at all! These cookies used egg white only so if you have leftover egg whites from previous bakes, this will be a good recipe to consume it. :) 


Purple sweet potato egg white butter cookies 

Ingredients: (makes about 12 pieces)

115g unsalted butter, room temperature
50g icing sugar
30g egg white
110g cake flour (I used Blue Jacket premium cake flour
50g homemade purple sweet potato powder *(click here for recipe) 

*If you are using store bought purple sweet potato purple, you may not need to use so much as the colour will be darker compared to homemade ones. Please adjust accordingly.

 The cooking temperature as suggested in all my recipes serve as a guideline. Every oven has different thermostat, you may have to adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven. Different brand of ingredients have different composites, thus there may be a slight difference in the end result.  食谱里的烘烤温度和时间只是供参考,每一架烤炉的恒温器都不同,请自己调适。不同品牌的材料有不同的复合材料,所以最终成品有可能稍有不同。

Hi Christine, if you are residing in Singapore, you can buy purple sweet potato powder at Kitchen Capers. To do it yourself, scroll up to "Ingredients", the line where homemade sweet potato powder is found, if you look carefully, there is a bracket besides it which says " Click here for recipe', it will lead you to my step-by-step recipe post on how to make your own purple sweet potato powder.

Hi Cheryl, to use the homemade sweet potatoes powder in bakes, do we replace the sweet potatoes powder with the same amount of flour required in the recipe? Thanks in advance...

Hi misery frizzy, as you have to use quite a substantial amount of homemade purple sweet potato powder in order achieve a more vibrant colour, you can't replace with the same amount of flour, you will have to adjust accordingly depending on your bake.
