About Melody @ Sweet and Saucy Shop

I went looking through my recipe files the other day and picked out a few recipes that I wanted to try. Of course two of the recipes I picked had passion fruit in them, I don’t know what it is, but the fruit is somewhat alluring to me. The first recipe I tried was from Martha Stewart, and it was her “Cookie of the Month” a while back. The recipe was for coconut cookies with passion fruit curd. I thought it would be a instant hit with my taste buds! The cookies turned out very cute looking, but the wow factor for the taste was just not there for me.

The cookies I think needed a little more flavor or sweetness and could’ve been a little crisper. The passion fruit curd was good, but also needed a little more sweetness to it in my opinion. I almost thought I would like to add a little cream cheese frosting to it to mellow out the flavor and sweeten it up, but sadly I had none. I do have some leftover curd though and might try it tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it turns out. So, overall I wasn’t blown away, but the idea of the recipe does seem like a winner to me. I think I am going to tweak the recipe and try it again sometime. Well, for anyone for wants to give this recipe a try too here are some photos I took along the way. Let me know your thoughts!

Here is a photo of the cooked curd and the finished cookie dough. The dough needs to be chilled and then rolled thin and cut into small circles. You chill the dough once again and bake until slightly golden brown (next time I would bake them longer).

I made my wedding cake, and it was yellow cake with homemade passionfruit buttercream. I live in Hawaii, and used passionfruit (liliko’i) from my friend’s yard. It’s my favorite flavor, and I’m anxious to try this yummy recipe - thanks!!!
