Pandan Thumbprint Biscuits
I found this recipe on a website I adore and visit often; Pham Fatale. I’m sure many of you will have visited Jackie’s blog over and over just to gawk at her creative recipes and beautiful photography. This is one recipe that caught my eye months ago and I’ve been pining to try it ever since! I had to adapt the recipe slightly because her recipe uses eggs. She does suggest leaving the eggs out however she says that the cookie does crumble easily this way. Well, let me tell you that I wasn’t satisfied with lettin’ the cookie crumble so I adapted the recipe in order to stop this from happening. It was a wholly successful mission… Almost. I wouldn’t describe my recipe as a cookie recipe but more of a biscuit. A damn delicious biscuit, may I say. It was buttery, crunchy and fragrant with all of that beautiful pandan flavour. Heavenly! And oh so cute with that little chocolate button in the middle. I suggest a couple of these with a tall glass of my spiced milk. Yeah that’s right; it’s a whole new take on classic milk and cookies (or biscuits in this case!)
I cannot say how Jackie’s recipe tastes as I haven’t followed it to the letter. Although I consider my version a simplified, eggless take on her gorgeous cookie recipe! I have substituted the melted chocolate with Cadbury’s (soon to be Kraft! Shock. Horror!) Dairy Milk Buttons (nomnomnom I will eat the whole bag in 56 seconds). If you can’t find these then just put a couple of chocolate chips in the little ‘thumbprint’ when the biscuits are still hot. They will melt and come together in the same way. Enjoy! Sorry I couldn’t have provided a more detailed post- I have lots of reading to do but just couldn’t resist sharing this recipe with you! I’ll be back soon to share with you a Lamington recipe for Mr P’s competition over at Delicious Delicious Delicious. Do check the wonderful competition out!
