Christmas is just slightly more than 2 weeks away. By now, everyone is caught up with the festive cheer everywhere and if you are not, well… my next several posts are focused on … what else, but delicious yuletide offerings! It’s time to feast, yeah! Let’s start with some sweets, shall we?
Butter Tree, with outlets in Ara Damansara and Section 17 Petaling Jaya is run by the good people behind Food Foundry (Section 17 Petaling Jaya) and Huckleberry Cafe (Pavilion Kuala Lumpur & BSC Bangsar). While Food Foundry and Huckleberry Cafes offer casual and cafe dining, Butter Tree is more focused on breads, pastries and desserts.
For Christmas, Butter Tree has come up with a list of special Cookies and Cakes, with some really cute and apt names too. There’re the Carabells – cookies with crushed salted cashew nuts and drizzled with caramel; the Nutcrackers – chocolate, banana and walnut cookies; Sugar Fairies – Soft vanilla cookies with raspberry-white chocolate cream filling and of course gingerbread! It aint Christmas without gingerbread, right? Butter Tree’s Gingerbread Man’s Land – honey gingerbread cookies which are sold as a ‘scenery’ with buildings, snowflakes, crescent moon etc – how cool is that?!
Then there’s the Dark Prince – Pistachio cookies with chocolate ganache filling, dipped in a smooth layer of dark chocolate. These are not the regular crunchy cookies; instead the cookies have a chewy texture and they do taste good, especially with the chocolate coating and pistachio nuts.
I love their Jack Frost which is a special log cake with chocolate-nut cream encased by buttery, vanilla sponge and topped with roasted almond flakes and creamy frosting. Very Christmassy and you need to eat this chilled – the creamy filling is just oozing with yumminess. Other special cakes offered are Snowettes – mini fruitcakes with cream cheese frosting and Willow Cake.
All these special Christmas sweets are already available (from 1 December 2011 until 1 January 2012) and on PRE-ORDER basis, at least 2 days in advance.
