    Recipe Boterkoek (Dutch style soft shortbread)

    I can't really compare Boterkoek (buttercake) to anything else I know from outside of the Netherlands. Shortbread comes the closest, so I have chosen to describe this as a soft shortbread. It's very rich and creamy. I hope you like it! Ingredients for the dough: 350 grams of plain flour 300...

    Recipe Tapioca biscuits

    The educational basis was a Malaysianchinesekitchen website recipe for sweet tapioca cookies named Kuih Bangkit. However, I decided to alter those into salty cookies, that feel like biscuits, in my perception. Hopefully, noone is offended by this alternation. It is a new dish. Ingredients: 325...

    How to make a low calorie cookie -- with panade?

    When I was a kid there was a show called Remington Steel. In one episode, the man who created the calorie-free chocolate chip cookie was murdered, and all these years later I still think about that cookie. It's the Holy Grail, for me, anyway. The other day I had some extra "de-watered" yogurt...

    Recipe Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I made this using a bit of a shortcut. I didn't have plain oats handy, so I used instant oatmeal mix. I've done this before, and there doesn't seem to be any real downside. The instant oatmeal was a chocolate chip oatmeal that I mainly got for my kids. I estimated the amount of chocolate chips...

    Recipe Pistachio Biscuits

    Pistachio Biscuits made with our own pistachio flour by crushing pistachio nuts in the mixer – with a little trick. Lovely smell. However, we didn’t grind them too much finely, because we liked the idea of the slightly crunchy texture provided by the pistachio granules. Makes about 20...

    Biscuit/cookie sizes

    I've been saying for years that these are getting smaller, I bought a packet of Kingston creams the other day and was amazed at the tiny size. The big one is average but the smaller one is tiny!! Do the makers reduce size to max the profit?? I know they say to eat less sugar but cut the sizes...
