I've started baking at a very early age. I just love baking. And since my mom was a primary school teacher at that time, the only chances we had to do some baking was during the festive season. Two weeks before Eid, my siblings and I will start nagging our mom to start baking the cookies. So to just 'quieten' us down, she'll start buying the ingredients and will only start baking a week before Eid. We really had fun helping mak in the kitchen. I miss those good ol' days.......
I'd like to share our family all time favourite cookie recipe, which is Pineapple Tart. I got this recipe in my mom's recipe book. Who knows it might be your favourite as well....
