My lovely neighbor baked her own Raya's goodies this year and I am so happy cos I get to savour them. She made me M&M cookies, cornflakes cuppies, kokokrunch cuppies, some chocolate tarts etc. The one that my palate fell in love with was the M&M cookies.
Wanted to do them and give my lovely neighbor a surprise, I asked for the recipe and did it on a sudden impulse one afternoon. And she wrote, sugar powder. Smart aleck me, I took it as icing sugar. So there I go, went ahead with the recipe and I ended up with M&M melt-in the mouth cookies.
It was yummy too. And I gave her some to try. I still like her version as it is the crunchy cookies texture, her hubby commented he prefer this texture. And we were laughing and joking about th cookies. And what is sugar powder? She took caster sugar and blended them.
Haha, mystery solved!! I am going to try again with caster sugar, not blending them to see what chemical reaction gonna take place again.
