Classic Butter Cookies

As classic as it sounds. Butter cookies with assorted toppings: cappuccino spread, lemon jelly, blueberry jelly, and nutella! 

Quick (Cheat) Bread

Have you ever had a sudden craving for some home made bread but didn't feel like having to wait for the dough-rising process? I often do. But thanks to Jamie Oliver's Fantastic Cheat's Pizza recipe you can hack yourself some quick bread in no time. You should really check this step by step for making quick pizza. It's so easy. I was not in the mood for making pizza so I tweaked it a little to make my own plain quick bread. Oh, by the way, you don't need oven for this recipe. Simply pan-fry the dough on the stove top, preferably using a heavy-bottom pan. See why it is called cheat bread?

Simply add some shredded cheese on the top, et voila! Something nice to munch.
The sweet version, with palm sugar coating that's caramelized during cooking.

Giant Cookie!

It really was a very large cookie. It didn't stay intact for too long because we couldn't bear to pinch a considerable portion as soon as it came out of the oven. Yes, while it was still sizzling hot.

I ate it for breakfast accompanied by full cream milk, ice cold. And I was not sorry. Goodbye, waistline!

Come, look closer! Yum-yum. 
Note: I quartered this Jacques Torres' recipe and baked the dough in a 24 cm pie plate, which resulted in rather thick cookie.
