    No-Dairy Lemon Cookies

    This is No-Dairy version of my ‘Soft Lemon Cookies’. I used Sunflower Oil instead of Butter, and I increased the amount of Flour as I used a Whole Egg today. These cookies turned actually crispy unlike the original Soft Cookies made with Butter. If you prefer softer cookies, take them out early. Makes 22 Cookies …

    Melting Moments with Passionfruit Cream

    My ‘Melting Moment’ cookies are custard shortbread, that is made with Custard Powder. Since I discovered that good quality Custard Powder contains only Corn Starch, Salt, Flavour from Milk, natural Yellow Colour from the Achiote tree seeds and nothing artificial, I have been using it to replace Corn Starch, and also to add yellow colour …

    Cream Cheese Soft Cookies

    The other day, I added leftover Cream Cheese to my Lemon Cookies. Cookies were not sweet enough. That’s because Cream Cheese was added, and also I added extra Flour as the dough became awfully soft. Adding extra Flour was a bad decision. I should have cooled the dough in the fridge. The very soft and …

    Old fashioned Buckwheat Cookies are still available to purchase in Japan. Store-bought Buckwheat Cookies are mostly likely made with Buckwheat Flour and also Wheat Flour.

    Banana Shortbread Cookies

    The other day, I realised I have never used Bananas for Cookies (except for Oats Cookies and Muesli Bars). What would happen if I added Banana to the cookie dough? So I tried with my Basic Cookie Dough recipe, replacing Egg with mashed Banana. Cookies turned quite soft as expected. Today I tried again. I …

    Leftover Whipped Cream & Yoghurt Bark

    Sugar Topped Lemon Shortbread

    Several years ago, I bought a bag of Raw Sugar to make ‘Kasutera’ Cake. I still have a lot of it because it’s been difficult for me to use those large Sugar crystals. I am trying to use it up now as it is getting old. ‘Sugar Coated Cookies‘ is a good way to use …

    Chestnut Paste Cookies

    There is a cake called ‘Mont Blanc Cake’ in Japan. This cake means a lot to me because I have a very special memory about it. Every time when I think about it, I become emotional. When I want to make ‘Mont Blanc Cake’, I purchase a jar of Sweetened Chestnut Paste, and always end …
