through a Korean culinary lens.

Soy-Balhyo Recipe

1. In order to make the Soy Jam, first sift the roasted soy flour and rice flour together

and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, cane sugar and salt.

2. Pour milk into a pan and add the flour mixture. With heat at medium power, mix well with a whisk. 

Add the salt and sugar mixture and continue to stir. When it starts to warm, lower the heat and cook

until the texture is like condensed milk (not too thick). It is crucial here to keep mixing!

Otherwise, the jam will stick to the pan and burn.

3. When the jam develops a thick body, strain and keep in the refrigerator

while we make the soy sable.

6. Transfer 200 g of the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper when finished

and cover with another sheet. Roll between the two parchment papers. Constantly check 

the thickness of the dough by peeling back the paper and making sure there are no wrinkles.

Thickness should be about 0.3 mm.

7. Place the paper with the dough onto a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes at 170°C.

Use cookie cutters to cut the Soy Sable into desired shapes and enjoy!


Ways to Eat:

C. For Jungsik’s Soy-Balhyo:

Place a small dot of corn syrup onto your serving plate. This holds the cookie in place.

Place the Soy Sable on top and add the balhyo tea cream. Drizzle a bit of the Soy Jam on top.

Decorate around the tea cream with small pieces of the soy sable and oat granola chips.

Scoop a spoonful of oat sorbet and place next to the cookie and top with a soy chip.
