This Christmas, I won't have any celebration like my previous years. So I choose to do some confession instead, just pretending I'm in a church talking to a priest. 
Here's my confession.

I been transfer schools to schools, meeting new friends at different schools. 
Once I m transferred to a new school, I neglected my friends in my old school. 
I didn't really want to stop hanging out with them.
Friends who used to be close with me, I'm really sorry. 

I'm born with a best friend. 
We always been together, even we are at different classes or schools.
I always been feeling bad for leaving her alone in that secondary school. 
I been transfer to another school by my dad. 
So my meeting new friends routine starts again, 
This is where I do not have time to spend with her.
Friends, curriculum, extra classes and her. 

We start having friends of our own,
she tried inviting me to join her new friends but at that time,
 I was all nerdy and I didn't felt I could blend in so I avoid. 
Till this moment, I'm still avoiding her sometimes,
Perhaps I'm afraid to face her because I felt sorry.

I really hope we could hang out together like before.

Somehow, I felt I been blessed to have her for my entire childhood.

Crispy Sesame Cookies

Since Christmas is just around the corner, let's bake some cookies! It's really hard to bake perfect cookies,even I'm in the pastry industry I still haven't really learnt how to do it.
Don give up hope kay! Just enjoy baking and be happy. 

Today's special, Crispy Sesame Cookies 
Not too sweet just nice for old folks who love sesames. 

All we need .....

  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp sesame seeds

Oven : 180*C

  1. Toast sesame seeds on a skillet until brown. Stir occasionally to avoid burn then cool down in a tray to stop the cooking process. 
  2. Beat the egg till you saw bubbles while cream the butter and sugars in another bowl till fluffy. Then add in the beaten egg into the sugar & butter mixture, mix well. 
  3. Sift in flour, salt and baking powder into the mix and combine till smooth. Don over whisk it! Or your cookies will turn out like a rock.
  4. Lastly, add in the toasted sesame seeds.

 Your cookies batter will turn out like this!

    5. Drop tsps of batter / Pipe the batter, spaced apart because they will spread. 

    6. Bake them for 12-13 mins until browned. 
    7. Let them cool for approximately 3 mins in the tray before removing to cool on rack. 

Here they are, crispy thin sesame cookies! Noms!

Look how thin they turn out, CRISPINESSSSSS. 

*TIPS : Make sure the sesame seeds is fully cool down before mixing into the batter.
          Take out the cookies from the oven when the edges are crispy and brown.
          Bake the cookies at 150*C for approximately 3 mins if they turned soft.*
