Frambozen Kenari

by Afra Taidin on Fri, July 01, 2016

Frambozen Kenari, no one really knows who came up with the name, it’s a mystery. Like, why Kenari? Unknown origins aside, Frambozen Kenari is actually a worthy dessert. It has a shortbread cookies base, which is smeared with jam, topped with a meringue layer and a sprinkle of nuts. With that combo, you know it will be a hit! Make it for Raya or spoil yourself and have it as a buka puasa dessert.

A scrumptious Raya treat!

Serves 9 people

The perfect dessert to end any meal.

Use a more tart tasting jam if you want to lessen the sweetness.
