Shirini Keshmeshi, a classic Persian cookie, is known for its delightful combination of simplicity and sweetness. These raisin cookies are soft, chewy, and perfect for tea time or as a treat during Persian New Year (Nowruz) celebrations. Here's how you can make them:
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!

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.

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...
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...

Pistachio Biscuits made with our own pistachio flour by crushing pistachio nuts in the mixer – with a little trick. Lovely smell.

Makes about 20...
I just tried out the vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe in this article last night: Save Money with DIY Christmas Gifts That Don't Suck
It was pretty tasty! But I'm wondering, when you make a cookie recipe, what egg substitute do you use?
This recipe used a flaxseed "egg." Are there a bunch of...
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...
You have all heard me say that I am not a baker. I have spread my wings a little with a Carrot Cake, Everything Lemon, Lemon Cake and a dark Chocolate Cake. I want to try decorated Holiday cookies. I have watched numerous YouTube videos. I think I can get the Royal Icing for piping and...
I did this one on a spur of the moment inspiration, assuming you can call this an inspiration. But they can be nice to make with children, who from what I remember from making genuine cookies with cookie cutters back in that day, was indeed fun.
I have these farming cookie cutters, see...
