Oh-reos

April 22, 2010

A while back, I promised to transport a pile of treats to a friend for his birthday. Now, if I were meeting up with someone for a cup of tea or a visit to grandmas I would bring something like biscuits or scones. But for a celebration you need icing!!! Unfortunately, getting anything frosted from point A to point B in mint condition is nearly impossible unless I plan on lugging some oddly shaped piece of Tupperware back home….a chore I am not fond of.

So I went on a hunt for a tasty transportable treat and stumbled upon this recipe for homemade Oreos! I’m not a huge fan of Oreos, but these cookies have changed my mind. They were so fun, quick, and easy to make that I want to bake them all of the time.

Making Mochi

My Mochi

Mochi is one of my favorite treats. What’s not to love? It enables you to eat ice cream with your hands.

While looking for more info on this amazing Japanese treat that I recently discovered, called Chocolate Monaka, I also found this photo by photo recipe on how to make your own mochi!

This is defiantly going to be my next cooking challenge. Perfect for the summer.

My main concern with it was the thought of finding ‘sweet rice powder’. I could just imagine going into Sunrise Mart and staring blankly at things that could be this rice flour, with uncertainty.

So take note when gazing at a rack full of blunt or foreign named flours for this recipe, that sweet rice powder may also be called glutinous rice or mochiko, in Japanese.
