These are scone-like cookies with a white and blue exterior, and green interior. They go well with tea.


Ingredients:


2 cups flour

½ tsp salt

½ tsp baking soda (or none, if you want purple interiors, & smaller, less salty cookies)

¾ cup unsalted butter

1 cup powdered sugar

3 egg whites

2 tsp vanilla

4 tbsp ube flavoring powder

½ cup powdered sugar (for coating, after baking)




Note: This is the Ube powder I use:

  • Bake at 350 for 13 min -15 min. Flip a cookie over to view the base. If it’s starting to brown, it’s done.


The cookies are puffier, and bluer, still with small areas of purple, after baking.
Here you can see the cookies have gotten bigger and bluer while they baked.


  • Remove cookies and roll them in powdered sugar. Use a spoon to not burn your hands. Let the cookies cool on parchment paper.
