Giving away cookies for everyone I know in KL...
I think it's a great idea to give away something you make yourself during christmas, with the "labor of LOVE". For this season, I gave away some christmas cookies to some friends around and to some staffs of the apartment. The receptionists and staff had been very helpful to us since we moved in, so I guess its time to give something back specially on the light of Christmas.
I used the basic cookie recipe that I just happen to discover not so long ago, and just made some alterations like adding cocoa to make chocolate flavors, and some nuts on different designs. I used almonds and cashew and lastly I brushed them with eggwhite to have that glossy look.
And lastly for the packaging, I have to pack them differently to look nicer and made some boxes out of art paper.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
