Selamat Hari Raya with Chocolate Cornflake Cups vs Oatmeal & Dates Cookies

Today, 28 July 2014 is a public holiday in Singapore where the Muslim celebrates Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Hari Raya literally means ‘celebration day’ whereas Hari Raya Aidilfitri is the day that marks the end of Ramadan in the Islamic holy month of dawn-to-sunset fasting. For us we are fortunate to have Malay neighbour who always share their lovely bakes and dishes with us and every year during Hari Raya we are also blessed with delicious treats too.

OATMEAL AND DATES COOKIES


Oatmeal and Dates Cookies with Chocolate Chips / Oatmeal Topping
For the second recipe, we made use of the dried dates that available during Ramadan period to make some Oatmeal And Dates Cookies. Muslim believe by eating dates daily during Ramadan is like taking a daily multivitamin that helps to create a stronger and healthier body. Between dates also contain large amounts of dietary fiber, which can prevent any constipation that might result from eating the traditionally rich foods served during Ramadan too.

So by adding dried dates into the oatmeal cookies it actually gives the taste a twist too. Besides that by swapping castor sugar to icing sugar it also gives a more crispy texture that contrast with the sticky dates fillings.
