Japan is cookie lovers heaven. Travelling through this beautiful country I keep having to stop before the window of yet another shop full of the prettiest, most elegant cookies I have ever seen. Even in the immense train stations you will find shops stacked high with gift boxes filled with the local specialities. No family packs of chips and cheap candy here. Sometimes the taste does not meet completely with our Western expectations -will I ever learn to love the taste of sweet red adzuki beans?- but the way they look and are presented make up for a lot. This week no new cookie recipe from me but a link to a Japanese Soba boro cookie that I posted earlier. Pretty and tasty!
