So, here's some cookies that I made last weekend...thought I'd share with you, in case you might want to try one or two or all recipes, haha!.....by the way, the theme for my Lebaran cookies and bakes this year is mat salleh...or so I perasan, haha!

Salam KG
Piring kecik yang you guna bubuh biskut tu membangkitkan kenangan silam. Teringat kat aruah my mum. You know, bila guests makan 1-2 jenis biskut, diorang letak dlm plate tulaaa.. Comel kan?
