Little niffy bits of goodness

Turtle Shortbread Cookies

Aloha friends!

As you all know from my Mille Feuille post, I joined the SCS Dairy Bakers’ Challenge, with the hope of making it to the 4-star challenge. I didn’t make it in but did have fun baking something every week (as if I needed an excuse to do so!). The 2-star challenge was based on Cookies. Prior to the third round, I think most of us contestants were kinda confused as to how we were being judged for every round. Hence, everyone kept trying to create exotic & special sort of things related to the theme so that we could really wow the judges.


I did a whole bunch of Googling & finally found a sort of cookie that I thought would be very unique & stand out from the rest. Turtle cookies! Mind you, this in no way means that I used Turtle to make these cookies. It just simply means that the cookies took on the cute little shape of turtles! It’s probably something similar to what you see on those designed macarons. Pretty and cute, although they taste no different than any other cookies.



Coconut Macaroons

Hello folks!

Today I’ll present you with an awesome macaroon recipe. Now, don’t get me wrong. I didn’t spell Macarons wrongly. These are Macaroons (two O’s). Many people often get confused between the two and I will be publishing a post soon to differentiate the two.


If you’ve been following my blog, you’d know that me not having an oven has proven to be a huge problem. However, one of my lovely NUS friends, Joanna, whipped these up. While not made by me, I can guarantee the quality of these lovely bite sized treats. Joanna did the bake sale with me in December & from the pictures she has provided, it is no doubt that these coconut delights will melt in your mouth but yet, maintain a good crisp texture. Sounds something like a macaron but also, not quite.




Pineapple Tarts

Chinese New Year is here again!

And what better way to celebrate the New Year than with scrumptious New Year delicacies?5272_10151928803996267_904404188_n

Singaporeans love indulging in caloric-filled treats at this time of the year, chugging in anything and everything to fill their mouths as we take part in awkward conversations with relatives that we only meet once a year.

One of my personal favourites is Pineapple Tarts. I remember that when I was around 8, my aunties would come over and spend a whole day making pineapple tarts. The whole house would smell of freshly baked buttery pastry and sweet pineapple jam.
