- 60g Frozen Refrigerated Hokkaido Yotsuba Butter No Salt

- 50g Daito Sugar Subaki Sugar

- 25g Egg yolk

- 30g Refrigerated Nakazawa Dairies Fresh Cream 45%

- 20g Cotta raw almond powder

- 100g Cotta rice flour for confectionery Mizuhochikara

- 45g Natural Kitchen Organic Dried Fruit Mix

- 10g Boiling water (for soaking dried fruits)

- Additional Cotta Rice flour for confectionery Mizuhochikara (for finishing)

How to Make:

1. Prepare the Dried Fruits: Chop the dried fruits coarsely. Add boiling water and let them steam until soft.

2. Soften the Butter: Place the butter in a bowl and soften it by heating it in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Be cautious not to melt it.

3. Mix the Butter with Sugar: Once softened, mix the butter with the brown sugar until creamy.

4. Add the Egg Yolk and Cream: Gradually add the egg yolk in two parts and then the fresh cream in three parts, mixing thoroughly each time.

5. Combine Dried Fruits and Other Ingredients: Mix in the almond powder and rice flour. When the dough starts to come together, add the steamed dried fruits and mix until evenly distributed.

6. Preheat Your Oven: Set your oven to 180℃.

7. Pipe and Bake: Use a piping bag to shape your cookies. Bake them on a baking sheet lined with Silpat (or parchment paper if you don't have Silpat) at 170℃ for 12 minutes.

8. Cool Down: Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer them to a ziplock bag to cool completely.

9. Decorate: Once cooled, you can start decorating your cookies with cake decoration techniques to add a personal touch.


- If the dough seems too dry, add a bit more water.

- For the best results, divide the mixture into several batches and mix thoroughly each time.

- Remember, it's okay if the cookies don't turn out perfectly round; they're still delicious!
