Melting Moments

This Melting Moments recipe is my personal favourite because as the name suggests, it simply melts in the mouth. I tend to like pastries and the likes that are not saccharine sweet, and this is one of the few savoury recipes I treasure. Once you’ve started popping one into your mouth, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve finished the last of the lot. This, you can be rest assured.

I like baking these cookies as a simple treat for family and friends because preparing and baking them are rather hassle-free. It helps that the requisite ingredients are easily always available in any baking enthusiast’s refrigerator, including mine. With such a simple recipe, you won’t need much elbow grease too.

If you like having your cookies turn out looking like roses, use Wilton’s 2D tip like I did. I must caution though, that this recipe churns out batter of rather stiff consistency, so expect the ‘roses’ you pipe to have jagged edges.

These cookies keep well, for a couple of weeks in an air-tight container. Since Christmas is around the corner, this recipe is a good start if you want to please family and friends alike.

Happy baking!
