sugar cookies with royal icing

The term “Netflix and chill” is in danger of obsoletion – to be replaced with “Netflix and cookies” – when we realized that something as sweet as a well-made sugar cookie can come as a remarkably good complement to the pulse-pounding episodes of Jessica Jones and The Punisher.

Architect of the aforementioned experience is Ida Salangsang, a gourmand and seasoned homecook, who has made a living out of selling restaurant-quality meals and baked goodies, apart from her job as a Playboy writer and birthing photographer. Her customizable Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing happens to be one of her best-sellers and she is kind enough to share a recipe that’s similar…

Knowing this for a fact, one of the bartenders at Cove Manila, Cyr Louie Frigillano, decided to expand the list of recipes stashed in the vault of the Playboy office’s bar and lord over the democracy in alcohol choices by preparing a cocktail that melds the refreshing qualities of a…
