Baked pineapple rolls.
I loved my pineapple rolls, taste so good because the jam was pure pineapples and for the pastry, I used good butter. This year at least I manage to bake three types of cookies and fried arrow heads. I will continue to bake them as long as I can in the future. At the same time I can bake extra as gifts for friends and relatives, safe cost.
These are all the cookies that I baked. I am very satisfy with my result.
