Tom Yum Cookies

How exotic does these sound?! Everyone shot me a weird look when I introduced them during a gathering but hey, what's cooking or baking without being adventurous eh? ;) Trust me, I was equally skeptical when I stumbled upon the recipe.

Recipe adapted from Taste of Time

Ingredients: (Makes about 20)
  • 325g plain flour, sifted
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 150mL canola oil
  • 3 tbsp Tom Yum paste
  • 8 pieces Kaffir lime leaves, shredded finely
  1. Mix everything in a bowl until well incorporated.
  2. Scoop out portions using a tablespoon and place on a lined or greased baking tray.
  3. Baked in preheated oven at 180°C for 30 minutes.
  4. Leave to cool completely before storing.

When I first bit into the cookie, my mind was utterly confused and some of my friends said the same. The flavours and texture are good but I probably need a while to get used to this exotic cookie. A few fell in love with it at first bite which is encouraging.

Can you stomach this? Guess you've got to try it to know it. ;)
