♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ = Very good!
When I was about teen-ish years old, my mother brought home a box of Shiroi-Koibito. It was a large metal box filled with individually wrapped cookies. She received them as a present from her boss, “Chef Takaya” who was from Japan. Every time Chef Takaya came home for his holiday vacation in Japan, he always brought my mother a box of these delicious cookies. So, when I got stationed in Japan, the second thing I remembered was the memorable cookies. To my dismay, my friend Joan told me that they are not available in the Yokosuka area where I was. Then out pure luck and coincidence, one of my first port visits was Otaru.
Back in 2006, I did not take as much photos as I should have. Yeah…watching people cross the street while chugging some milkshake or something.
I don’t remember much about the places we went to, but I remember taking a train to Sapporo and walking around the Radio Tower with friends.
My old camera was such a trooper, taking a night photo while walking was a hoot! Anyways…….
The recipe was from Ochikeron 🙂 One of the Japanese Youtube bloggers that I follow. Thanks to her, I can now make Shiroi Koibito with love, here in the Midwest.
I don’t have chocolate laying around….Don’t dismay,
I didn’t bother making a template because the flat piping tip was good enough to “guestimate”. All it took was three 1 inch strip. The Nutella turned out a bit sweet so I didn’t slab a lot.
Burn’t or not, they’re my favorite cookies!
Doumo arigatou gozaimasu!
