Recently a well known cookie bakery shop set foot in Singapore. Sometime I wonder whether distributors felt that Singaporeans are affluent or have that kiasu mentality that I have to own one too.
The price set was double from what was available in Hong Kong and it was sold out within a day. Totally unbelievable isn't it? Anyway, his is not the only example, many food chains are the same. Hub explained that it is the rental factor.
I also tried the coffee flavour.
Findings: Texture wise, it is close to Jenny's. Presentation, this recipe actually "flattens" quite alot. I have tried elevating the height of the pipping but still it doesn't really work well. At 180°C, the cookies already spread quite a fair bit and I can't imagine baking these at 150°C, I think it will spread even faster.
As for the coffee flavour, I only added in 3 tsp of the dissolved coffee, was afraid that the batter become diluted but I think another 1 tsp should still be acceptable.
Overall, this recipe needs to relook to produce better presentation.
