It's another study week before final exam. And, instead of make a preparation for exam, I travel back to my hometown and spend time baking everyday! Happiest days in my life! It really is a very short holiday, so I tried to find easy recipes and I found this yummy cookie recipe! 

We call this cookie putri salju in Indonesia, a melt-in-your-mouth type of cookie and ground cashew nuts in it. Well, the texture is similar to melting moment cookies, so I guess it is the same (minus the cashew nuts). This recipe contains no nuts, but we add in cocoa powder and dark cooking chocolate instead.

The cookies texture is crunchy and melt in your mouth, although I expect it to be softer just like the original putri salju cookies. The taste is super chocolate, it is bittersweet and that's what I love the most from chocolate! I even think that I might bake this for next year's CNY!
