Shiroi Koibito (White Lovers) Chocolate Cookies 白い恋人

I think there were so many posts about valentine’s day on the web already, lots of chocolate, cake, dessert or even cookies.

I made skinny beetroot cupcake last year for this special day, I think I will have  a bit different for this year. Suddenly, this Japanese cookie is flashing in my head, I remember that I saw some kind of the advert about the Valentine’s gift but it was a long time ago.

It is because I get admire by the cookie’s name, it is called ‘White Lovers’ and the Japanese name is called Shiroi Koibito 白い恋人, so romantic and glamorous!

Then I fix up my mind, I need to do some homework first, search the recipe from the web, try and test out which one I like. Finally, this is the one I like, share it to you now, wish you all have a Happy Valentine’s day, enjoy the happy time!

The recipe adapted from ochikeron. And the cookie information is from here.

Method: 

  1. Draw about an inch and a half squares (leaving about an inch between) on a piece of paper.
  2. Melt butter in a microwave (in a microwavable dish) and cream it in a bowl. Add the sugar, egg, and cake flour (sift), in order and mix well. Or you can add vanilla extract to taste.
  3. Preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C/160°C(fan oven), or gas mark 4.
  4. Transfer the batter to a pastry bag and snip off the end. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, place the template under the parchment paper. Pipe out the batter in the squares (the batter will spread a little, so keep it smaller). Then remove the template.
  5. Bake at preheat oven for 8-10 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet.
  6. Melt the white chocolate over a double boiler, after the chocolate melt, off heat and let it cool for about 2 minutes and the chocolate still have a little bit bit and spreadable, then use a small palette knife to spread the white chocolate between two cookie’s, like ‘whoopie-pie’, and repeat the remaining cookies, let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Keep them in an air-tight glass jar, and tie with a fancy ribbon, that’s finish the Valentine’s present for your love one.
