Cashewnut Cookies

This is the fourth and will be the last recipe tried before celebrating CNY this Sunday, 14 February 2010. Baked this last weekend. The cookies are not as tasty and crispy as expected. Among all the recipes tried this year, the cornflake crunchies are still my favourite but still lack of consistency among all the batches made :-) Anyway, yesterday night was my last day of baking by making the final round of cornflake crunchies, the sixth and seventh batch, for my family and friends.

Chocolate cookies

Daughter loves colourful sprinkles so decided to search for recipe that uses it but can't find it though. This is another recipe adapted from the Biscuit Code by Florence Tan called Bourbon Biscuits and made variation to it. Instead of using the mashed chocolate, top it with colourful sprinkles. My daughter helped out with most of the sprinkling. When she ran out of the sprinkles, she can't wait to sprinkle them with colourful stars. It's nice to see her enjoy doing it. The cookies turned out not bad after all ..... sweet cocoa taste.
