Category : Cookies
I baked chocolate wafers today thinking that they would go great with my coffee ice-cream which is 'ripening' in the freezer. I came upon Smitten Kitchen's homemade chocolate wafers & icebox cupcakes and thought what a good idea to bake some of these and plus they look easy. Check out her blog and recipe which is adapted from Alice Medrich's Pure Dessert.
I used Hershey's special dark cocoa powder instead of the Valrhona cocoa powder which Smitten Kitchen did. Well, the main reason was i was too lazy to dig my pantry for my Valrhona cocoa powder which was lying around somewhere (Hershey's however was just on the shelf within reach..:P) and I wanted my wafers to look dark like Oreo cookies. Well, in the end, they do taste like Oreos..quite similar. lol!
Yummy! :9 Everybody ought to try this..it's so easy to do and hassle free. The only hassle is our hot weather here melts the cookie dough lightning fast, so each time i cut the cookie pieces, i have to put them in the fridge immediately....prior baking.

About Me: Faithy
Hi, I'm Faithy. Faithy is my alter-ego. I was told back then when internet first started that it was dangerous to put your real name on the web...LOL.. (seriously not kidding!). So it was how this name Faithy came about and has stuck with me ever since. And as a matter of fact, I like it better than my real name..esp when I share the exact same name as my sister.. :D
Anyway, I started my blog initially on vox as a way to remind myself what i have baked and hopefully to see some progress along the way too..:)
