Cookies recipe @

Every time I bought a pack of chocolate chip cookies, had a guilty feeling for not trying to make my own.  Another reason for this excuse was due to my forgetfulness  to purchase the essential ingredient for this cookie, chocolate chip.

This is my first time baking this famous cookies with much reduced sugar and without the mixer.  Use a whisk to whip up butter and sugar.

Really happy with the result,  this Chocolate Chip Cookies turned out soft and chewy.  When break open it, it was full of chocolate chip. with buttery flavor.  This Chocolate Chip is the best recipe for making the incredible  cookies you'll ever eat!

Chocolate Almond (Cokdam)  Cookies  are deliciously simple to  make yet elegant and tasty dessert or snack  You might wonder what :cokdam" stand for.  It's a short form for chocolate and badam (almond).

Some cookie dough needs minimal chill time in the  fridge but these cookies are not required.

Highly  recommended  not making these  Chocolate Almond (Cokdam) Cookies too thick  and  if possible make them almost the same size to ensure even cooking time.   I used small cookie cutter and pleased with the result. I got about 100 cookies  for the following recipe. Each time you use the cookie cutter, dip it first in flour so you will get beautifully shaped cookies without sticking.

Make sure the almond is finely chopped in order to get beautiful shape otherwise the dough tends to break when cutting them.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies from scratch

These Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are on my "to do" list for a long time. They are crisp on the outside
but  chewy in the center and ridiculously easy to make.

If you're a chocolate lover, you're going to love these cookies. They have deep chocolate flavor.

I suppose to  roll the cookies in confectioners sugar for that pretty crack on top but last minute, I could not find my powdered sugar so have coated them with fine sugar.

Make sure to place the rolled cookies 1 in apart, as they bake, they spread and the surface cracks.

You can turn the same recipe into Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by adding a tablespoon of red food coloring to the flour mixture.

It has been more than 2 decades  I have eaten these Rock Cakes, made them in my Home Economics class.   Using basic ingredients of butter, sugar, flour and raisin you can transform these into your favorite by adding chocolate chips,  other dried fruit, nuts, spices or zest  but  I prefer to stick to the basic recipe

In the past we used the rubbing in method but now I change the way you prepare these  Rock Cakes by  mixing  the  melted butter in the dough.

My house was filled with fantastic aroma while baking these  little treats.  They are crunchy outside but soft inside

Rock Cakes Eggless

Yield  30

1 cup self rising flour
1/2 cup castor sugar removed 2 tablespoon
60 g melted butter
1/4 cup milk
3/4 cup raisin
1 tablespoon or more  water if needed


Preheat oven  @  175 C.

Combine flour, sugar and  raisin in a mixing bowl.

Make a well in the center, add milk and  melted butter, stir gently to combine, if still crumbly add a tablespoon of cold water.

Drop heaped tablespoonfuls onto baking tray, allowing room for spreading.

Bake 10-15 minutes until firm  to touch.

Let sit in the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to wire  rack.

Store in an airtight container.

Do you have friends or family coming to visit? Treat them to some delicious and relatively healthy Crunch Drops  Cookies for dessert. These cookies are made with rolled oat and breakfast cereal (cornflakes). This recipe is very simple and not time consuming to whip up.

Crunch Drops

These are healthy, fiber packed, indulgent and delicious! Another tip, you must let them sit about 3 minutes in a pan after baking since they tend to break and still very soft before transferring them onto rack to cool. They are crunchy outside but chewy inside, great for morning tea or afternoon snack too.

These Almond Chocolate Cookies are deliciously simple to make yet are elegant and tasty dessert.

The dough of these cookies can be prepared in advance, keep refrigerated for use the next day. Substitute your choice of nuts for the almonds if needed.

As we grow older, we tend to be more health conscious and avoid taking overly sweet desserts. This is the reason why I resort to make my own rather than buying the ready made cookies that are way too sweet.

For most of my friends, cookies were served  during festivals  (Eid,  Lunar New Year or Christmas) but not in my household. We are serving them regularly as our tea time treat.

I  recently bake these Spiced Cookies  and my family raved about them because they are unusual and delicious.  However this cookies is my to go. Simple, easy and loaded with warm spices.

Would  definitely prefer to bake in a smaller portion to maintain freshness but you can easily double up the quantity if needed.  I also make use of orange colored sugar  instead of white one.

To speed up the process, you can leave the butter on your counter  for few hours prior to baking or else use your microwave oven to soften it a little.

Another combination of spices could be added to the dough are nutmeg, cinnamon or mixed spices.

Yield   :  25 cookies

1 cup all purpose flour
90 g softened butter
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1  tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 1/2 cup rolled oat for topping
1-2 tablespoon ice water if needed


Cream butter and sugar until well combined.

Add in flour,  baking soda, ginger powder and cardamom..

Mix well and forms into soft dough. Add 1-2 tablespoon of ice water if needed.

Preheat oven @ 170 C

Shape into small ball and roll in oat, flatten slightly.

Place them on  baking sheet, complete the rest of the dough.

Bake for 15 minutes  or until lightly browned.

Leave in the pan for 5 minutes, transfer onto rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container.

This is the cookies I used to buy from Indian tea stall stored in a glass jar but much bigger in size. Suji Cookies is  pleasantly buttery and  slightly crunchy  biscuit.

Made of clarified  butter (ghee), flour and baking soda, it is quite simple to prepare. The only time  needed is rolling them into tiny balls.

If you want softer cookies shorten your baking time and they will remain white even after baking. Feel free to  roll them to your desired size but place them  1 in apart since they will expand a little while baking.

Yield   :   35 cookies

1.5 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon clarified butter
1/2 cup fine sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1.4 teaspoon salt

Now combine clarified butter and flour mixture and forms into soft dough.

Pinch dough into 1/2 in ball and flatten slightly, Place balls  into baking sheet 1 in apart. Preheat oven @ 175 C.

These simple cookies are  incredible, whipped up from pantry ingredients.  When you first bite into them, you feel the warmth from ginger  and  a hint of  sweetness from  honey with slightly chewy texture.

 For topping I had used granulated sugar but you can also sprinkle with silvered almond or white chocolate Awesome scent when they are baking. Especially fabulous with coffee or hot cocoa.

Most of ginger cookies recipes call for molasses but this was not available in my kitchen, therefore  had used  honey instead.

These cookies  do really  stay soft.  Soft Ginger Cookies are rolled in sugar before baking,  great  for the lunchbox  or for gatherings.


Slightly flatten the cookies,  it will spread a little as you bake.

Place them 1 in apart on baking sheet, to give room for them to expand.

Daisy Cookies?Biskut Dahlia

These cookies made their appearance during festive seasons but they are now available all year round during Chinese New Year, Idul Fitri, Diwali and Christmas.

They are basically butter cookies that are light, crumbly and literally melt in your mouth. Daisy Cookies are just so pretty laid on a plate. There are few variations of Daisy Cookies, what make it different is the combination of ingredients used, some use condensed milk, dry milk or custard powder  but my recipe below does not use those.

This lovely shape was obtained using a special mold but if unavailable, a  cookie press will be the best option.

Special care is required for lifting the cookies from the baking sheet since it was extremely delicate.

Thumbprint Cookies

A sweet and buttery cookies, each of these  indented  cookies contains a special jammy center - strawberry. orange, raspberry  or whatever flavor you desire.  Normally it was rolled into a ball then flatten but now I had used a cookies cutter to do the job, simply filled the center with preserves/jam.

Serve these colorful bites with piping hot cup of tea or a glass of milk.

These colorful cookies are also great for serving at holiday party or for sharing at a cookie exchange.
