( Filipino Meringue Cookie )
(Pasencia Cookie! fresh from the oven..:) )
(Happy Birthday, Sweetie! Mahal Kita:) )
Today is my Hubby's birthday, So, I made him a simple chocolate fudge brownie cake, with vanilla icing and orange frosting for little decoration on the side. While doing the finishing touch for the cake, lot of ideas popping to my head, what else?? I could make to make this perfect night for the whole family. Aha! I'm gonna try the recipe that I found last night while doing some random research about food, I stumble upon this blog ( Apple, Pies, Patis and Pate) its blog about food and they all look really good, But I was intrigue with this, Pasencia Cookies, to my surprise there's only 6 ingredients. Today is the perfect time for me to give it a try for the first time, It's very easy and really good! This would be perfect for light snack while watching our favorite show tonight. I was really excited making it, as soon as it comes out in the oven, I tasted it with no hesitation, even if it is really hot ( hahah). It's really yummy! crunchy, light, little chewy and not to sweet! Aside from that, this Pasencia cookies is also perfect for light snack, or family picnic, company coming over, any occasion or I would say just because ( wink). I would say double or triple the ingredients if making it for large group since there small bite size and there very light, I would say, somewhat between cookie and meringue in texture, Just little perfect bite!
This is very easy and all the ingredients is already in your household, If you're thinking trying new recipe this is the perfect one to try.
