# Recipe from Small Small Baker.

It’s been such a long time since I last baked this cookies.  As I’m meeting my cousin for dinner, I decided to bake for her as her birthday is coming!

Woke up early and look through my flour.  Realised I’m short of potato starch.  Went to nearby 7-11 but they no longer sell.  Arghh….  Lazy to walk to Jurong Point NTUC and it’s raining.  Last resort, went over to mil place and she only left with a bit.  But she said she will be going out, so get her to buy a packet for me.

I made colorful ones.  Those in pink really taste like strawberry as I’ve used Strawberry paste.  Yummy!
