I’ve been meaning to make shortbread cookies for a while and I finally got around to it. I even added some matcha powder to make them more special =D
To make these buttery cookies, you only need 4 ingredients: butter, powdered sugar, flour and matcha powder. I rolled the dough into a log and then just cut them up into circles since I was too lazy to use a cookie cutter. Also, my cookies were pretty small so I ended up baking them for 8 mins only and the bottom was still slightly burnt already =( The recipe says to bake for 16-18 mins but I’ve learned long ago to always bake less than what they say!
Check out the recipe I used from The Comfort of Cooking. The recipe is just for regular shortbread cookies but I added two tablespoons of matcha powder to mine.
I posted about my first visit to Purebread about a month ago and I had already dubbed it my dessert heaven. If you didn’t know already, I am a huge fan of baked goods! So it was no surprise that I would be returning to Purebread soon. See what else I tried below!
As I had previously professed in my Starbucks post that their Cranberry Bliss Bar is my favourite holiday goodie there. When I saw that Purebread had a Cranberry Cream Bar that was basically the same thing, I knew it had to GET IN MY BELLY (ok I just really wanted to say that :D).
Purebread’s version has a thicker crust layer which was soft and moist with a subtle ginger flavour. The cream cheese layer was sweet and accented by the cranberries on top. This was a winner for me and a great dupe for the Cranberry Bliss Bar and probably better because I like that there is more crust! The ginger flavour might not be for everyone though even though I think it’s mild and my friend thought it was a bit too sweet. It is a big bar though so you could always share!

Hello I’m back! I was travelling in HK and Beijing for two weeks and now it’s time to get back to food blogging! I have a bit of a backlog going on here and whoa WordPress looks different!
I was rather obsessed with lemony baked goods before and I still probably am so I tried to make lemon cookies and they were quite successful! By my very low standards they tasted pretty good with hints of lemon. For some reason they were really soft though and they still tasted good after 4 days. They seemed a bit flat though so maybe I over mixed it?
Here is the link to the lemon cookies recipe if you’re interested! I made 16 rather large cookies. :)
