Butter Cookies are everyone's favourites
Jackfruit and Pandan may sound like strange bedfellows but that is what we love about the cooks that connect with us! They are adventurous in experimenting with tastes and textures and when we heard about Jackfruit and Pandan Butter Cookies we knew we had to share this!
As all foodies know, butter is a magic ingredient that makes cookies perk right up and smell absolutely divine.
Now imagine blending into one batch the strong flavours of the exotic jackfruit and in another, the subtle quiet fragrance of the beautiful pandan. We are drooling even just thinking about it!
It is a lovely treat that is perfect for all occasions. Put on your apron and get out your culinary tools and be ready for some yummy tasting!
