Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

We first encountered the original version last Christmas when we were gifted the cookies by our wonderful friends down the street. Every bite was an indulgence that I just had to ask Liz if I can have the recipe and she directed me to Smitten Kitchen. Here, I adapted the recipe slightly to what is […]

Cashew Cookies Baking Marathon

Had a cashew cookies baking marathon Friday evening, right after work and a quick dinner and we’ve been enjoying these delicious morsels with my favorite Fig Leaf coffee since then. Pure bliss! ❤️ Recipe can be found here in a prior post.

Chinese New Year Peanut Cookies

So, I conducted an experiment yesterday – I tested two different gluten-free flours and compared the results with cookies made from regular wheat flour and now, we are inundated with peanut cookies galore, lol. The first gluten-free flour I used was the Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour. I have had so much success with utilizing Authentic […]

Kuih Bangkit

Finally, I have success making my favorite Chinese New Year cookie! I wasn’t sure if I could have ever done it in my lifetime, lol – the recipe seems so simple but yet, extremely complicated at the same time. The list of ingredients is short but there are so many variables in the process and […]

Brown Sugar Meringue Kisses

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Pineapple Tarts

Next up is CNY treat #5 – the extremely time-consuming, labor-intensive, but oh so delicious Pineapple Tarts!

It is the ultimate, most tender Pineapple […]

Crispy Chocolate Walnut Cookies

Crunch! Hear the sound? No? I guess you’ll just have to make these delicious cookies yourself. Back when I was growing up, the only kind of cookies that I liked were the crispy ones. It took me a while to learn to appreciate the soft, chewy kinds that are commonly found here but my first love will always […]
