Eggless Japanese Sesame Cookies

Japanese Sesame Cookies, if you are looking for something super crunchy, nutty then you should look at my today's dangerously addictive Sesame Cookies. These cookies are eggless but not vegan, as milk and butter are used for binding the flour and other ingredients. With simple ingredients, you can bake out this ultimate Japanese sesame cookies with less efforts. Loaded with both black and white sesame seeds, this cookies are damn flavourful with super nuttiness. I bookmarked this cookies while we were running Mega marathon from Ruchi's Space, while she got this cookies from Gayathri's space. This cookie dough calls for oil, but i couldnt stop myself to add some butter to oil to bake this cookies somehow buttery.

Pinca - Croatian Easter Sweet Bread

Pinca/Pinza, this sweet bread is baked in Croatia especially during Easter holidays. Traditionally baked with loads of eggs, this bread will be super rich, soft and beautifully flavoured bread, obviously which will definitely tickle your tastebuds. Though earlier lard is used in this bread, nowadays Pinca is made with a butter and flavored with either with citrus zest or with orange zest, along with candied or dried fruits with some rum or rose water. Obviously this bread is a must for Easter table as Pinca remained as centrepiece of most of the Croatian Easter breakfast table. Pinca is often taken to Easter mass for blessings which is later given as a symbol of good wishes.
