  1. Aunty Rose, thank you very much for sharing your recipes. I’ve tried baking the Almond Suji Cookie last weekend & it came out fantastic. Both my brother & sister in law cannot believe i baked them, thot i’ve gotten it from the local chain bakery. I’m looking forward to hands-on more of your recipe.

    Wishing you great health & joy.

  3. Dear Aunty Rose,

    Cooking or baking from some of these recipes that you have graciously shared is a blessing. I have an aunt who has also recovered from breast cancer and what’s more ironic is that, she too took all of her old cook books especially those handwritten ones and gave it to me.For me these are rear treasures and so are your recipes. She told me that handing down or rather sharing recipes is actually a blessing because you somehow make people happy with food that you have prepared with your own hands. May you be blessed with good health for many many years to come and you will surely be in my prayers.
    God Bless.

    • used 310g of semolina instead.result after putting water to form a dough, sticky n sets after removing from fridge.rolled a spoonful of the dough in ball n flatten with my hand ffor each cookie instead of rolling n then cut into forms.
      result:sugar perfect not too sweet,biscuit crunchy outside n a bit soft inside,so not dry.should be great with tea….next time ill try a polenta biscuit 😉
