Seaweed and Meat Floss Cookies

I hardly make cookies because my family prefers cakes to cookies.  The only time that I baked a lot of cookies is during the Chinese New Year period and it is also the only time that I will eat a lot of them.
This is one of the cookies that I will bake again for Chinese New Year.  They are so well received by my children.  Seaweed and meat floss are great combination.  These sweet-savoury cookies are crunchy, taste and ADDICTIVE!   
This recipe is taken from the cookbook – The Secret of Cookies 告诉你饼干的密秘

3g            Salt
