Homemade Goodies

Pretty flowers blooming in my living room with fishes from a friend. =)

I haven't had much time to bake this year but managed to squeeze all my baking in 2 days on top of spring cleaning, my daily chores, studies and coaching my darling baby. I baked cornflake cookies, suji vanilla bean cookies and 4 batches of pineapple tarts. After 4 batches of pineapple tarts, I think I finally found the one! The melt in the mouth, buttery pastry that complements the pineapple filling so well. Will share the recipe in the next post. First to share photos of my handiwork. =)

Snowflake Cookies

Happy 2012! It's a brand new year with new hopes and new beginnings. Lots to do and lots to look forward to this year. 2011 has ended well for me. We had much quality family time and I really enjoyed the time spent together. The 3 of us lazing in front of the TV, 3 of us bickering over TV programmes to watch, 3 of us fighting over the cookies and the 2 of us messing up the kitchen =). As from my previous posts we've made several batches  of Christmas cookies and  also experimented with different ways of decorating it. This was the last batch we made. It was tricky to do as it involves different methods of decoration with royal icing. It was hard work but I loved the results. I got my reference from here: They make such pretty cookies, maybe one day...maybe... I can produce cookies as pretty as theirs. =)
