Shaped cookies

What an exhausting day it has been. Was out since 11plus this morning. Princess didn't go school as was coughing all night so wanted her to sleep in this morning. Unfortunately she woke up at 7am! There goes my sleep. Haha. So arranged to meet Sam for lunch to cheer her up a little, as she's just started working this week and feeling a bit lost. Had lunch at Food Republic in Vivo, and G managed to get there in time to join us after sending her older girl off to school. It was all a little too short and we only had time to eat, and not much else. However, G and I shopped a little before we went our separate ways.

All in all, was out pretty much the whole day as had swimming lessons after that, so am actually pretty knackered, but just want to relax a little by blogging while my cookies are cooling down.


Made the cookie dough yesterday but had many things to see to as well, so left it till today to bake. Got the recipe from a kiddy cookbook which a friend had given me a while back. I've never baked shaped cookies before so this is my first time. Divided dough into half, one of which I added chocolate sprinkles and the other has dried cherries. Will do the cherry one tomorrow.

They turned out quite nice. I had halved the sugar and added some quaker instant oats in. They are only slightly sweet which is great. It was pretty addictive I must say. ;)

Oh, this I must share... For dinner tonight I had instant noodles. Hands up those of you who love real spicy food, as well as instant noodles. Well, I discovered this gem today. I'm very particular about noodles and am partial towards Indomie Mee Goreng. However I am a convert to this Myojo Singapore Sambal. It's funny though that they call it that as sambal is not native to Singapore. Haha. Believe me, this is very good. What was missing for me was the fishballs. It tastes like the mee pok you get at fishball noodle stalls. So if you want to get that taste, add some fishballs. It was truly spicy which is very shiok as I find that usually in instant noodles, the chilli is toned down. So give it a try.

Karen - Haha, you've tried? Am sure it passed your hot (chilli) taste. :)

G - Yes must buy and try. Even Karen agrees. Yes cookies turned out quite well.

Thanks for the noodle recommendation..the instant noodles I cant live w/o is KimChi Ramen & Myojo Ramen Char Mee, Dry. Gonna hunt for the Sambal noodles later.

Yes, I do love Kimchi ramen too when I'm up for soupy noodles. I usually poach an egg in it, yummy. Yes, Ramen Char Mee is very popular, but I have not much of an impression from the last time I tried it. Maybe I should try it again.

All these ravings making me salivate.... I must get hold of one of these Myojo Sambal Mee Poh cos dried Mee Poh with minced meat is my favourite. Thank you Debra for recommending this "gem"
