Dahlia Semprit

by Aida Azizuddin on Fri, July 01, 2016

Here’s a bit of a throwback cookie. Dahlia semprit evokes a sense of 70s, retro-shaped with a little cherry on top. It also comes from a time where there not many ingredients are available hence, it uses contents of your cupboard like condensed milk and corn flour. Bake them for a little bit of nostalgia…

Edible flowers full of nostalgia!

Serves 10 people

The taste of this cookie is one we seldom get anymore, the older folks will remember it fondly.

Not fond of banana? Use essence of your choice.
