Failed Files: Chocolate biscuits with soft chocolate centres

Another failed file! And I can’t be bothered with taking a picture of the failed biscuits.


  • Ran out of caster sugar and tried to be gung-ho and used normal granulated sugar instead -> texture of the biscuit was so bad, obvious granulated sugar crunchiness to the biscuit
  • Not sure if it’s me or the recipe, the biscuit dough was so crumbly. So difficult to roll out and handle in general -> so frustrating
  • Overall too sweet and rich -> chocolate overload
  • Unknowingly used expired chocolate -> hope I won’t lao sai

Not going to make this again. Still edible but hard to finish them up lol. School’s really busy these days T.T



Crispy Oatmeal Cookie

Finally managed to make some real crispy cookies! They came out of the oven very very soft so I was kind of sceptical about its crispiness but after a few minutes of cooling, they became real crispy. And they remained quite crispy even after a few days.

And I liked the oatmeal too. Hooray. Just that it was a little too sweet. Will probably cut down on the sugar next time.

Yay I’m back from my exchange so now I have more time and equipment to start baking again! I was really craving for crispy chocolate chip cookies the other day so I decided to make some because my favourite dark chocolate pecan pepperidge farm chocolate chip cookie is so expensive.

I really really like the crispy types and really really dislike the chewy subway cookie type so this time round, I abandon my Women’s Weekly recipe (which gives quite chewy cookies despite experimenting with the brown and white sugar ratio) and went online to search for a new one.  Continue reading

Chocolate Slice Cookies


I once saw Bake with Anna Olson on TV and I fell in love with her kitchen (and presentation style) immediately. Those sugar drawers and huge ovens *.* So recently I stumbled upon this youtube user who has uploaded plenty of Anna Olson’s cooking series and I managed to catch all the Bake with Anna Olson episodes. I wanted to try her Tart Au Chocolat recipe out (and make use of the mini tart pans I bought during sales season haha) but things didn’t went well for me… Continue reading
