Tart Prune


There are times when memories just kept flooding back in this tiny brain of mine. Sometimes it brings back sweet memories and left me feeling lost at the end...

A few days ago, when I was cutting the dried chillies, the image of my dad came to mind. My dad used to help mom in the kitchen and one of his 'duty' is to help cut the dried chillies. He'll cut the whole lot that mom bought. Mom will only use the amount she needed and will keep the rest to use in future. And another 'duty' of his is to clean the dried anchovies (ikan bilis) which I will gladly joined him. And we'll chat and chat and before we realised it, the fishes were done in no time.... oh those good old I miss him... so much......


Yesterday evening, despite feeling exhausted, I've tried two recipes from Kak Liza's Kek dan Biskut's book. Let me just share one of it here with you. I am sure Kak Liza won't mind, kan kak kan kan kan.....

By the way, when I was doing this cookies, I remembered Mat Gebu and his Rose Tart story. Now that I've met you in person, I can imagine how 'cute' you looked rolling on your kitchen floor... hahaha.. jangan mare Mat.. makin cute jadinya nanti.. hehehe. But don't worry, this cookies are not so tedious to make compared to the lovely Rose Tart okay.
