White Chocolate Lemongrass Cookie 白巧克力香茅餅乾

Recently we've been dipping our toes into the wonderful flavors of Vietnamese cuisine (see our posts on Vietnamese Beef Vermicelli Noodles and Vietnamese Deep Fried Spring Rolls...yum!) and so quite naturally have been using a lot of lemongrass. You have seen it before of course, that green yellow stalk that looks for all the world like the dried twig of a tree. This humble looking woody stick has flavor magic inside it though, giving the cuisines of Vietnam and Thailand some really awesome and unique flavors. Well we had a wee bit o' lemongrass left over and one day, while poking around an old chocolate cookbook, what did I discover but a recipe that uses lemongrass and white chocolate together in one cookie! Strange combination but it caught my imagination. So we tried it. And what do you know, these White Chocolate Lemongrass Cookies 白巧克力香茅餅乾 were really quite good, the sweet mellow creaminess of white chocolate and aromatic butter complemented by the exotic citrus ginger notes of lemongrass. A definite must bake for any fan of lemongrass!
