Can I tell you how much I love these cookies? These are so good I can't believe they have cemented their place as my current favourite cookie.
I first tasted this when my colleague baked some and encouraged us to try. Since then, I was completely sold and was even thick-skinned enough to ask for a second serving (this so did not happen before :P). However, I was not bold enough to ask for the recipe. Soon after, I stumbled upon the same recipe she used on Evan's blog and jumped at the opportunity to make them.
Since I love these cookies so much, I've stored the extras away as my secret cookie stash - for times when I suddenly crave a good cookie or as guilty pleasures any time of the day. This is one cookie that I'll strongly encourage you to try out. If you're not too big a fan of of the rose/bandung flavour, go light on the rose essence or simply do away with it. The rose petals lend a very slight hint of rose to the cookie, which is not strong enough to put off anyone but brings out the beauty of this cookie with an added girly touch.
This might just signify the beginning of my love journey with roses...
