Motivated or rather 'pushed' to bake this cookies for my gal's Teacher's Day gifts for her 2 lovely teachers at play group. So why did I say 'PUSH'? Oh, I seldom make this sinful, sweet and fattening treats at home. Firstly, I can't resist and keep munching away, my gal will keep asking for it, hubby will also unknowingly munch on it. So unhealthy cos of the amount of sugar, butter used for making them.. But then again, once in a blue moon indulge lo. LOL!
I bought 2 glass bottles from Daiso, did a minor deco, did a trial run on this cookies before the actual bakes. Yummy and addictive were they. I think i ate them on the pretext of making sure they are fully cooled down before storing them. Hahah.
Took some picture of them in plastic packaging, and also in the bottles that I intend to give the teachers, trying to see if there is any pocket money to be earned since I will be baking more than enough for the teachers. After filling up the bottles, I realized that either I need to make it even smaller as bottle necks are narrow, or I need to find another bottle for them in less than a weeks time. (gal end school on 30Aug for term break)
Anyway, I came across this recipe when searching through the experts blogs, came across and was itchy enough to want to make them.
