Profile description change.

When I first started my blog as a university student in 2004:

I love to bake, hate to cook. I insist that they are two entirely different things. But I hardly have time to bake now. Sigh.

October, 2011:

Still love to bake, am now discovering the joys of cooking. Wish I had the time to do more of both.

I've grown. *proud*

Walnut+Pecan Cookies

My last post was in 2008? Stating the obvious, it's been too long.

Saying that I stare at a monitor and write the whole day long, would just be an excuse. So instead I'll just carry on where I left off. Er, while trying a new, hopefully faster rating format.

Sooo... Walnut+Pecan cookies.

Recipe link

Total time: Approximately 2 hours
Comments: Filling is yummy, but cookie dough is hard to handle.


- Texture of cookies: Soft

- Wasn't mentioned in the recipe, but I got about 50 cookies.

- The raw cookie dough was too soft and not as easy to shape into balls as I expected. And getting an imprint on it with my fingers was not easy at all. Might try refrigerating it next time.

- The filling was nowhere near enough. In the end I used:1 cup of chopped pecans, 1 cup of chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, 3/4 cup whipping cream and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.
