  8. Hi Cheah, You are a blessing and inspiration to me! I tried
    The apricot n sultana cake, it's fantastic. Today I made the Sarsi chicken wings. My family loved it. Thanks so much for your generosity to share. I will try this beer cake.
    By the way, I could not find your recipe using the Ipoh Salted Chicken Spices Mix HERBALTON black pepper. Can I get the Mix from JB?
    Thanks again.

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
