Almond sugar pastry cookies

(Homemade) - Almond sugar pastry cookies
When this blog was a little left behind and there was no new recipe post due to my busyness with my two latest posts on reviewing one restaurant and one bakery, and after everything is done, I feel like I need a break just to catch my breath. The reason why I posted two resto review posts in a very short time was because I was fortunate enough to be chosen by BBlog as one of food blogger to join with other bloggers to do the review and get paid for it :) Yes, I was so lucky !

I also have good news as I promised on my previous post to keep you all posted, that my son passed on his National Exam with good scores and now he is officially a Junior High student. But we decided to continue homeschooling him for the next 3 years. I know it's not easy but I hope we can make it through.

Ramadhan goes by so fast and we are getting closer to the end of Ramadhan. But I don't want to miss Ramadhan moment by not making cookies for Eid day. Eid al-Fitr has always been special for every Muslims worldwide, both happy and also sad at the same time. Eid al-Fitr is the day of those whose fasts have been accepted,whose services have been rewarded and whose sins have been forgiven.

I made these cookies with my leftover store-bought puff pastry sheet. This is what I love about this cookies, you can make them in a blink of an eye, easy peasy lemon squeezy. Haaa...sounds like I'm being cocky but it's so true. Just wait until you try and let me know how it work for you :) We still have few more days before Eid day, if you haven't made any cookies yet, I recommend you to give it a go.

Cook's notes :
- Transfer cookies to an airtight container and keep in the fridge to make them stay crisp and crunchy.

Bake and Dine with "BreadLife Bakery"

When you want a quick breakfast or brunch, then the fastest solution is bread. You can make sandwich with egg, your favorite jam, fresh vegetables or fruits. I often keep bread to eat in the afternoon to overcome my hunger while working in the office. So, bread has always been my preferred food when hungry.

Since the number of bakeries are increasing through times in Jakarta, it makes bread lovers spoiled for choices. Because we can find and choose the best quality of bread. Good bread with great texture, great basic bread dough and great variation of fillings.
Another invitation from BBlog to join the "Bake and Dine with BreadLife Bakery" event at BreadLife Bakery Living World Alam Sutera. With 4 foodie bloggers, we were treated with breads, cakes and drinks. What more interesting than have a little chit chat, take a shoot of foods and taste them ?

BreadLife Bakery Indonesia, as one of competitor in bakery industry, offers a range of various delicious sweet bread, toast, dry cakes and now BreadLife Bakery extend their product range by providing chilled cakes and beverages in some outlets. BreadLife Bakery is an artisan Japanese bakery with open kitchen concept and their products are made from high quality ingredients with no preservatives.

I have my own favorites from BreadLife, the ones I usually buy whenever I come here. Chocolate muffin, Rugby, The Ring and their new World Cup edition bread, Cheese Balls.

Let me take you on a "virtual tour" through my photos from "Bake and Dine with BreadLife Bakery" event that day. Are you ready ?

I'm a promiscuous cheese lover and this one is just perfect ! The hero of Cheese Gratine is of course cream cheese. It made without base crust, so you'll get only creamy cheese top to bottom. Light, tangy and refreshing all at the same time.
BreadLife Bakery - Rugby Bread
My favorite and best seller ! Look at the size of this rugby ball-shaped sweet bread, it's big enough so you can share it for two people. The outer layer is crispy with Belgian chocolate chips while the inside is tender bread with sweet vanilla vla.
