Somehow i decided to improvise a recipe on my own. Don’t know what got me to do so, but yes. Many of you may already know, i’m in love with the green tea red bean combination. Back in june, i was in Hong Kong and came across a green tea red bean cookie from Starbucks. Don’t know if you guys have seen or tried it before. But we don’t have it here in Singapore! Not that i know of, at least. So that got me really excited, especially when i stocked up on my matcha powder a while back.
But sad to say, my attempt at this failed.
The butter and brown sugar.
Eggs, flour, vanilla, salt, baking soda.
Matcha powder. Then carried on to add in red beans.
The dough was wet. So at this point, i got a little worried. How it turned out?
Well.. I’ve no problems with the taste and sweetness. But it wasn’t a cookie texture at all! It was all hmmm how should i put this.. Cake-like? Yeah, cake-like. It wasn’t even close to a cookie! 😦 I didn’t exactly have high hopes on my first attempt, so not all that disappointed. Hmmmm. Any idea how should the proportions of butter, sugar, flour etc for a cookie be like? Help! Hahaha. Won’t post up the (fail) recipe until i get this right! Then i’ll share it with all of you!
How was your first recipe improvisation like?
Anyway, on the topic about first tries and attempts.. Would like to share these with all of you who have a phobia of making macarons! 😛 A while back, i baked macarons for a friend who was attending a garden party.
My macarons alongside with her sugar cookies & cupcakes!
Sorry i havent been updating as much because i’m down with a terrible cough and a runny nose. I’m losing my voice too. Someone even said i sound like Rachael Ray! Hahahaha!
I look forward to your comments and suggestions 🙂 TIA!
