Keroppi Food Art & Cookie

I'm sorry my site was not accessible earlier, thank you to all of you who tried to inform me about it. I was changing the template yesterday, ended up making a mess, I had no time to fix it, so I restricted access to the blog for the time being. This new look that you are seeing is just a temporary one, I'm still working with the designers on another one, as the final site is going to be two column, I thought I should slowly change the blog layout, so that the final transition will be easier.

I'm finally updating a recipe post, I've quite a few to share, but as they take longer to put up, as compared to the regular post, I keep procrastinating. These Keroppi cookies are matcha german cookies. These Keroppi cookies were inspired by Wanwan Tea, I was attracted by the ones she made during my very first visit to her blog.

These cookies simply melts in your mouth, they are similar to the Tsum Tsum ones I shared earlier here. These cookies are green due to the matcha powder added, and they also come with a hint of matcha flavour.

Before I proceed to the cookie recipe, let me share two Keroppi food art I made. This Keroppi was made out of chopped spring onions and fish balls.

The noodles below are udon made using my Philips Noodle Maker, they have a disc for making udon that you can order from their service centre.

And this Keroppi was made from Zucchini-based noodles or Zoodles. I made this one for myself. I used a spiralizer to slice the Zoodles, quite fun, but this gadget is a little bulky for my tiny kitchen. -_-

Keroppi eyes here was made using hard boiled egg.

50g icing sugar, sifted
125g potato starch

  15. Bake cookies at 140 degrees celcius for 20 minutes. To prevent cracking, please place at the middle to low rack and insert an empty tray above it. When the cookie has cooled down, use melted chocolate to draw Keroppi's mouth.

  3. The Keroppi cookies look awesome! Very creative piece with the spring onions and fishballs!

  4. Hi Ming, thanks for the recipe. I have tried baking my cookies at mid-lower rack at 160 degrees Celsius, have also placed an empty tray above it. However, my cookies still crack. Any ideas/suggestions to why that still happen? Thanks.


    1. My guess is that your oven actual temperature is actually higher than 160, you can try to lower the temperature a little, hope that works.

  5. hi are we allowed to use all purpose flour instead of cake flour? my cookies came out dry and powdery :(

    1. Cake flour is better, but the cookies are on the dry side and will melt into powder in your mouth.

  6. my cookies just kinda you know why that happened? thanks!

    1. They do melt in your mouth. They are also quite fragile and will break easily if you drop them.
