Cookies Galore


Yeah..yeah...my cookie baking engine was stoked amid sputters and wheezes. There were baking ingredients leftover from the earlier batches and why not bake more and spread the joy? (and fats!)


The result of my industrious endeavor - 5 canisters of cookies and a few more pieces to fill 4 smaller containers (for me to munch while watching the telly heh..heh...).


These are not new recipes but tried and tested ones with a little bit of tweaks here and there. That's the nice thing about cookies. It is very hard to get them wrong with minor (or even some major) adaptations.


This one is my Cranberry Cornflakes Cookies done lazy style i.e. with the crushed cornflakes thrown into the batter. 


And just because I had some Nestum leftover from an earlier batch, I simply coated the remaining batter with the cereal. Hence one basic recipe, two styles.


This is my favorite. Tweaked from Malted Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies which I attempted back in 2013. I added cocoa powder and you guessed it.... Nestum.

I did not have enough chocolate chips. So instead of adding them into the batter, I just pressed three onto each cookie. Of course some ended up with only two chocolate chips each.


These coffee flavored ones were incredibly crunchy. I tweaked the recipe from my Coffee Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies. The walnuts in my fridge expired and I had to throw them away.

So I had to improvise and added crushed cornflakes instead. Unfortunately the coffee flavor was muted because I used a different coffee flavor.

For the final batch, I added more crushed cornflakes and I preferred this batch as it had a lot more crunch.


As I was preparing the cookie batters, I jotted down what I added and what I tweaked. I guess I will want to document the recipes properly to share and for future reference.

  5. I got chocolate chip from Merryn and my missus made 4 types of cookies of her own and we bought a whole lot from Kuching and also the shops here. Now I do not mind if I'd never see another cookie in my life. LOL!!!

  6. I'm sorry but I wasn't gawking at your cookies (I'm sure they're delicious)...but at your cookie containers...you know me, I don't like to eat cookies really. They look a lot more nicer than those usual red ones sold everywhere. Where did you buy them? P/S: I see you're using some kind of photo editor now for your photos...hee..hee! ;)

    1. Interested in the containers pulak hah..hah... OK. the 2 slimmer ones are from ACE Hardware (RM5.90 each, same price as Daiso) while the other 3 are from Daiso, though not all Daiso branches have this type. Of course you don't like to eat cookies, you love your Cookie! I have been using Picasa 3 and just recently dabbled with the create collage function :)

  7. So many types of yummy cookies. Very tempting to munch on them non stop. I like the ones with more crunch. That is why I didn't bake any, have to watch my diet.

  9. I am particular about cookies - I like them chewy in the middle with a slight crunch on the outside.
