Cookies for ..

Finding an excuse to bake cookies for family and baked a little extra to give to my students today. Its deliciously good. I never knew that premix biscuit mix can be as good as home made ones. Supplier gave me a sample pack 3 months ago. Since then, I have been using it to create 10 different flavours. They told me the original recipe came from Switzerland and was send to their Malaysian office for repacking, production to make the product "Halal" for muslims too.

Its no wonder the customers at KC store keeps coming back for it. Here's one recipe for you to try at home:

Green Tea Bing Cherries Cookies
Recipe by Gina Choong

Yields 2 tubs of cookies

500g APITO Biscuit Mix
250g Butter(salted)
2 tbsp Green Tea powder(bakeable)
100g Dried Bing Cherries

1. Leave butter out to soften in room temperature
2. Add flour, green tea powder and bing cherries to mix till it forms into a dough
3. Scoop out using a cookie scoop and place on baking tray.*
4. Bake in preheated oven 180C for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to cool before storing in air tight jars.

1. You don't need to line a baking tray with parchment paper as the dough has butter. It won't stick to the tray.
2. You can use unsalted butter or even margarine for this biscuit mix.
3. Apito is the brand name. The company that produces this product is Bakels
