    melts in the mouth I love chocolate so any recipe with chocolate catches my eye and I cannot rest in peace till I have tried out the recipe. I tried this recipe out which must have been in my recipe book for eons. After the first time I baked them, I have made many more batches since for friends and relatives and have had a few orders too. I love the fact that in a single bite you can get both the vanilla and chocolate taste or you can choose which part to bite into first, the chocolate or the vanilla. Ok… am getting to the point, don’t be impatient. Today I am going to share with you a recipe for marbled cookies. MARBLE COOKIES…

  • 149. fresh coconut cookies

    freshness in a nut    The next best aroma besides a fresh loaf baking is fresh coconut toasting or roasting. I love coconut and so obviously love coconut cookies, coconut chocolate, coconut chutney, coconut barfi. I could go on and on.

Don’t get me wrong…. not the same recipe but different recipes which have been in my recipe book for eons. I baked some of the cookies for my relatives in Nairobi and they loved them. So here is the first recipe. Meera, bake these for your family, they are very easy. I have not taken out the cup measurement for the butter as transferring the soft butter to a cup is a messy job.

    EVENT: FOODIES_ REDOING OLD POSTS #38 RECIPE: KENYAN STYLE BISCUITS What are Kenyan Style Biscuits? How these homemade biscuits got the name Kenyan Style Biscuits or Kenyan Biscuits, I have no idea. The only thing I know is that most Asian homes in East Africa in the 50s to 70s era made them. Most common flavour was from the cardamom powder but some made ginger flavored ones. For me it was when the women of our family spent time together, doing their share in baking these biscuits. Basically flour, sugar, butter, milk and leavening agents are used to make these super delicious biscuits. Memories  When I was growing up, the only biscuits that most Gujarati families in Kenya made were the rolled biscuits. Its only…
