Black and White II
August 5, 2010

I’m in my final month of vacation and work will start in September. In the meantime, I am learning how to drive and boy does a manual car (stick shift) require good hand-eye coordination, which I think I might lack. Luckily enough, baking does not require any hand-eye coordination.

The fasting month will soon be upon us and for the first time in a long time, I will have ample time to plan and bake Raya goodies. And thus, being the forward thinking person that I am (not) I have been searching for new recipes to try. That was when I stumbled upon this recipe. The cookies looked cute and sort of resembled the rice cakes we serve during Eid. Mine turned out kinda wonky and the weird thing was that I did use a ruler to measure but that didn’t matter once you taste them.

And what do you do if you have extra dough pieces left behind? Roll them together and make black and white spiral cookies!
