Story Behind this Recipe
I love Yatsuhashi so I wanted to make Yatsuhashi-style cookies.
TL Note: Yatsuhashi is a famous confection from Kyoto. When baked, it has a texture similar to senbei (rice crackers). When just steamed, it's usually wrapped around sweet red bean paste. They are usually given as a souvenir.
All you have to do is mix together the dough. These cookies have a great texture. You might even find them too crunchy if you spread them out too thinly.
