Story Behind this Recipe
I was supposed to have a booth at a Sakura Festival. Since cookies were highlighted at the booths, I came up with this recipe through trial and error. In the end, we did not have cookies at the booth, but I wanted to make it into a recipe anyway.
These cookies would be even more spring-like with some chopped up salted cherry leaves. Cut the dough with sakura, or petal-shaped cookie cutters! Since it is very simple, it may be a good idea to add some fragrance to the dough. Add very small amount of food coloring at a time! The dough becomes quite dark when the food coloring dissolves in liquid!
