It has been a while since the last time I baked something for Eid. I think it was two years ago, when I made chocolate chips and almond london biscuit for Eid. Last year, even though I bought some ingredients to bake chocolate chips, but I didn’t feel like I wanted to celebrate Eid at all. The passing of my mom in September 2017 still has its effect on me. But, I still remember when I lost my dad in 2009, my mom insisted us to keep the tradition alive i.e. the tradition of preparing cookies and whatsnot for Eid. It was some of the things that she normally used to do without fail before Eid. Being me, I would rather buy than bake unless I have to.
I know that I baked a lot when I was doing my PhD as compared to now (post PhD period). I guess at that time, I enjoyed baking and cooking because whatever I baked and cooked would be enjoyed by many people i.e. my housemates and #60 Steavenson Stresst PRs.
But, today I baked brownie cookies (I get the recipe from Youtube). Since I didn’t have the exact ingredients that they use, I improvised. I didn’t know how it will turn out because I am fasting (at the moment of writing this post).
Here are the pictures that I took: Before and after.
P.S: I know that the shapes and sizes are not standardised but I don’t care. I just let it be that way. After all, I am pretty sure that I will be the ONLY one who eat this and there is no way that I serve this to any guest who come to my house during Eid.
