  9. Hi Cheah,

    Your Danish butter cookies are very nicely piped with beautiful shapes. I reckon baking these kinds in good shapes can be challenging and you did yours very well!

    Btw, iIf you piped these cookies in a "S" shapes, your cookies remind me of the dragon cookies that Sonia baked...

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
