Baking Cookies is So Much Fun

09.12.14 by Jackie

I love baking cookies. I find it so therapeutic. I think what I enjoy most is the simple thrill of watching the person I baked the cookies for enjoying them.

The reason I haven't published any recipe for the last few days is because I've been a busy bee, traveling to  Los Angeles for a press day. If you follow the blog, you probably know I finished filming the pilot of my first cooking series. I'm so excited! I'll tell you more about the events I attended soon.

At this moment, I'm still in LA, waiting for my batch of signature cookies (the ones flavored with pandan). But for now, I wanted to share some of the cookies I've prepared over the years. Enjoy!

Vegan Panna Cotta Recipe Recipe

Vegan Panna Cotta Recipe

Panna cotta is a dessert we often ate during our Italian vacation last month. It consists of a combination of cream, milk, sugar and gelatin, which is the key ingredient for binding and thickening the dessert. My husband Lulu, who's a vegetarian, is still on a diet and has been working hard to shed the last few pounds, so I prepared my own version to suit his dietary needs.

Agar agar (made from seaweed) is a great vegan substitute for gelatin. I used hazelnut milk to replace the cream and milk and Manuka honey as the sweetener. 

To give an appealing look to the dessert, I served it with red currants ("Corinthes rouges" in French) for a striking contrast in color. The reasoning behind the hazelnut milk is that historically, panna cotta was eaten with fruit and hazelnuts.
