Crunchy buttered toast fingers 美味奶油酥條
This is my latest discovery of a great snack. It doesn’t have an English name so I’m going to call it buttered toast fingers. They are one of the most popular souvenir snacks from Hualien in Taiwan and was recommended by the B&B owner during my recent trip.
They have been around for a few years already but I’m not a big snack fan so they haven’t popped on my radar till now. Let my show you exactly what they look like.
They are slices of bread, cut into fingers, and there are about six slices per box.
The fingers are coated with melted butter, then sugar is sprinkled on top, and then they are baked in a low heat oven, at about 150 degrees for 30 minutes till they are crunchy. Usually I’m very fussy with my bread and toast, and always cut off the crust. Here, even the crust is very crunchy, and because it has a touch of sweetness, it is very addictive!
They are great for dunking into a cup of coffee for elevenses! Unhealthy I hear you say? That’s what new year resolutions are for, and new year isn’t here yet!!
