Yes, we’re back from Jakarta. Back home in HH to a familiar surroundings with dear hubby and Kitkat. I didn’t realize how much I missed my old kitchen until then. Did a minor reorganization with all the kitchen and food stuff brought from Indo. Things that are impossible to find here – like kaffir lime leaves, coconut milk powder, lemongrass, galangal, cinnamon, nutmegs, soy sauce….
This evening I managed to sneak a few minutes to bake these crunchy cookies. They taste pretty similar to snicker doodles, but with more textures and body because of the oats & ground almonds. A perfect company to a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The boys had them with rum raisin ice cream sandwiched in between the cookies. You should try it…
