15 Hours of Baking... huh

   I'm rather tired. I started baking at 9am today, and turned off the oven at about 2am just now. Well, I did take some breaks in between, but most of my time today was spent in the kitchen. What an achievement!

   Let's see. I made some cookies:
   1. Vanilla Custard Kisses (still haven't made the filling)
   2. Afghan Biscuits
   3. Surprise Cookies (something my Dad named, and my favourite out of today's bakings)
   4. Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies
   5. Hazelnut Cookies

   I'll post entries about them later. I also baked a few more goodies in the last few days:
   1. Bright-eyed Susans
   2. Tate's Chocolate Chip Cookies
   3. Mocha-Crescent Thingies

   I can't imagine how people who take orders for Eid manage! I love baking, but doing it non-stop can be a little tiring. Thankfully KakYong. Aiman, Ummi & adik helped. Dad and Abang helped by eating! Haha. 

   We're setting off for Kedah at around 9am. If we manage to leave by then. If I have time, I shall post some recipes before we do, but if I don't I'll do it when we get there- provided I have time to copy down the recipes! There's still so much to do, but we're all looking forward to meeting everyone for Eid. It'll be fun. And a little sad too, with Tok (my paternal grandmother) who no longer recognises anybody. 

   The kitchen is a mess. 


  1. Wow you have been busy in the kitchen baking. Lookign forward to seeing the recipes. I'm intrigued by the Afghan Biscuits. Have a good, safe and happy trip.

  2. Thanks, Shaheen! The Afghan biscuits have dessicated coconut in them, so you may like them (if you like coconut, that is)


I love comments! They give me a lot of encouragement to do more baking (though of course I'd still bake even without comments). Please leave a link if you visit my page so that I can return the visit. Thank you!
