Cookies testing for Eid - success!

Hello everyone.. I hv not logged into blogger for the past months, and when i did today.. i found out that Mynn of salam dua benua aka LG had decided to blog for the last time a week ago after 6yrs of blogging... it looks like most of us have lost our mojo in blogging... i lost it since last year but hv decided to not privatize my blog cos there are too many recipes that i hv shared in this blog.. i thank you all who keep on checking in and out of my blog just to see if there are any new recipes... sadly to say... i cant possibly share all the recipes that u hv seen in my fb and IG... there are times where i just dont feel like sharing... not that i dont want to but time is not on my side .. sharing is indeed caring but when credit is not given where it is due... it can really make one decide to just keep it simple and post pics in IG instead :o(

Honestly.. IG and FB are great tools for sharing.... but nothing beats blogging for the depth in expressing yourself.. And only those who have actually blogged understand how much work goes into it.

Anyway we are ok... i hv not been travelling at all... hubs is still trying to fit into his new job.. Sonia is growing way too fast and Hairi... well hes all grown up tho at times i still think that he needs our guidance..

Tomorrow is Sonia's graduation day... this will be her third and last year where u will see her performing on stage with her kinder school mates... we hv managed to secure a place in the school that we want her to go.. pending approval fm MOE of cos.. so wish us luck yah..

My baking journey has grown too... i get to play more often with my nozzles and at the same time manage to find time to try out new recipes.. most recipes that i hv tried are fm all the baking books that i hv bought.. i hv also been lucky with all of them cos each time i feel like trying out new recipes.. it works.. yayyy

So ok... i am here bec i want to share some new cookie recipes... each year bef ramadhan.. i will try to look for new recipes which i can serve during Eid... this year is a little special cos i hv decided not to take in any orders for Eid.. am thinking of taking a break during Ramadhan .. so hopefully more new recipes.. Insyallah..
