This is a recipe from One Day One Dish book by SeaShore publishers which I bought when we were in Singapore. In the book, the recipe is called Chocolate Rice Sprinkle but instead I replaced the chocolate rice with Hundreds and Thousands.
This week I decided to adapt a recipe from The Secret of Cookies by Gu Huixue and bake White Lotus Sandwich Cookies. Instead of using black dates, I am using the leftover white lotus paste I had from the Swiss Roll Snow Skin mooncake and Colourful Snow Skin mooncake. Also one of the ingredients is cake flour which I replaced with plain flour and a few other alterations.
Three years ago, we had a landscape gardener design our front and back garden which included rows of lavender. The small patch of grass we had in our front garden was filled with yellow, golden stones. This year, the lavender has really bloomed and fills the front garden with a nice sweet smell. I’m really pleased with it this year – they’re absolutely gorgeous!
