Rosemary Biscuits

 Mun Wah tagged me in a post that says sniffing rosemary could improve memory by 75%

Everybody knows I have bad memory, this is a good news to me, I went to Asia Bakery shop to look for rosemary herbs, it was out of stock, but I reserve 100g of rosemary herbs without hesitation, it costs about RM30+ Next is to sew a few small sachets for this herbs, for me to keep under pillow, wardrobe and car, hall.... everywhere I can smell them.

Later of the day, I searched a recipe that calls for rosemary, here I found this Flaky Herb Biscuits. Easy to make, something like making scones. Best thing is I have thyme and rosemary herbs at home. I can bake it right away.

It does give a pleasant aroma to your house while baking it. tasted salty, and I had this serving with a small piece of salted butter which I bought last night, recommended by Leonard, to really know the butter well, I took a small cube of it alone. I can I take SCS butter alone, but I find it rather salty by taking this alone. It should go well with sour dough bread.

This herb biscuits are salty biscuits, it went well with this French butter though.

Here is the recipe for Rosemary Biscuits


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mixed fresh herbs, such as rosemary and thyme
  • 100gm Salted butter, cold, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk


1) Preheat oven 200°C. Line baking tray with parchment paper.
2) In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together 
3) Add butter cubes into mixture, knead into crumbs 
4) Pour in milk to knead into dough form
5) Move dough on lightly floured table top, use a roller to make a 1/4" thickness, cut out with round shape cutter. Transfer it onto lined baking tray.
6) Bake until golden brown, it takes roughly 18 minutes, serve immediately.

Sourdough starter

After a few attempts, finally get this time successfully cultivated, hooray!! What happened to the old unsuccessful sourdough starter? "Those? " "most of them gotten maggots on the 5th day, some turned blackish and smelled badly." I was finally realised that I should not wait till 5th day, as the temperature in Malaysia is warmer. Hence, I got this sourdough recipe for myself, use this recipe if you are in tropical country. Go to - Happy Peter Sourdough Recipe

I finally decided to use 2:1 ratio instead of 1:1 ratio. Meaning 2 tablespoon of flour, 1 tablespoon of water, make them into paste form rather than liquid form. And with this try and change, I got it successfully cultivated and I name it "Happy Peter Sourdough Starter" Meet my "Happy Peter Sourdough Starter"

I made a few more, simply don't like the idea of throwing away, I gave them to Cynthia, Yee Neo and KC Goh. "Happy~"
