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.



Condensed Milk Cookies


You can all probably guess by now that I love condensed milk. It’s super amazing. It makes my breakfast milo at home taste good, goes really well with Thai Iced Tea, and basically just makes any dessert item taste good. I guess the list of things you could make with condensed milk is endless.

When I first saw this recipe for condensed milk cookies on Raspberri Cupcakes, I knew I had to try it. It’s taken me 9 months to get down to it, but I’m glad I did.
