Yes, they are back! Starbucks’ beloved handcrafted holiday drinks return to stores in Singapore for a limited time, along with the special Christmas Blend coffee, new food and beverage offerings and an exclusive selection of curated merchandise for gifting.  The festive drinks are S$7.10 (hot/iced for tall) and S$7.60 for Frappucino (tall) Toffee Nut Latte (left): This is probably many people's favorite. Rich, buttery notes of sweet toffee is combined with the warmth of toasted nuts and blended with smooth espresso and steamed milk. Topped with whipped cream and toffee nut sprinkles. Peppermint Mocha (centre): Espresso and steamed milk sweetened with flavors of chocolate and peppermint, topped with whipped cream, mocha drizzle, and candy cane pieces. Gingerbread Latte (right): The warm flavour of gingerbread combined with espresso and steamed milk. Finished with a spice-infused whipped cream and brown sugar drizzle. CHRISTMAS BLEND COFFEE Also back is the special Christmas Blend coffee that Starbucks has been making since 1984. In creating the 2016 blend, Starbucks ages the rare Sumatra beans for up to five years, and as the coffee rests, it develops a cedary, deep and earthy flavour. These beans are then combined with robust coffee beans from Asia-Pacific and vibrant coffee beans from Latin America resulting in a full-bodied coffee that pairs well with a variety of Christmas foods, from savoury meals to sweet desserts such as the Strawberry and Hazelnut Chocolate Tart. Choose from a range of formats to suit tastes and preferences. Coffee connoisseurs can enjoy whole bean offerings or go for these: Starbucks® Christmas Blend Origami™: a delightful and convenient single-use filter for the perfect portioned cup of coffee on-the-go. Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew Christmas Blend: an instant Starbucks kick to create Christmas in a cup – wherever, whenever FESTIVE FOOD AND CAKESMeanwhile, there are new items on the menu for the festive season. Sour Cream Chicken and Cranberry Pie (S$5.60) A pie that’s overflowing with chunky chicken, sweet cranberry and tangy sour cream. Chocolate Pull-apart Brioche (S$5.90) A buttery soft bread oozing with chocolate, complete with crunchy almonds. Strawberry and Hazelnut Chocolate Tart (S$6.90) An indulgent chocolate crust topped with berry goodness and rich hazelnut praline.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
