The story of an Almond London

It’s been a week since Muslims all over the world celebrated Eid Mubarak. Back in my hometown (Alor Setar), we had a tremendous celebration. It was fullhouse. For the first time I (with my cousins) made the infamous raya cookies called Almond London. Kurang pasti sama ada biskut ni origin dari London or they just made it sound that way. We started the Almond London project after Subuh’s prayer and finished at 12 noon. Since all of us were fasting, the temptation occurs from dipping the naked cookies into the chocolatey syrups made all of us drools. We went ooh..awww….

Frankly speaking, my favorite biskut raya goes to Pineapple Tarts. However the taste might differ due to the pineapple jams and sometimes the taste is heavily affected by the crunchiness of the tarts. Despite that, I also fall in love with biskut makmur and biskut suji and the all time favorite, biskut semperit. ^_^
