Shiroi Koibito (White Lovers / Black Lovers)

This is a famous biscuit in Japan & Korea. It is exceptionally sweet so next time, I think I'll cut down on the sugar in this recipe. The problem with making this biscuit is that you've got to get a mould for the biscuit otherwise it will turn out ugly like mine. I tried cutting out a microwave container lid but this is the best I got (see photo)

Shiroi Koibito

100gm sugar
90gm butter
2 eggs
85gm cake flour
white chocolate / milk chocolate

  1. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add sifted cake flour into the mixture.
  4. Line baking tray and spread mixture to cover the hole in the template on the baking paper.
  5. Bake at 180 degrees Celcius for about 10-15 mins, or until the sides become slightly brown.
  6. Melt chocolate over double boiler.
  7. Using a butter knife, spread the chocolate over one piece of biscuit and sandwich with another biscuit on top.
