The pear-infused butter cookies by Kotobuki Seika—also offered through Bokksu as a pack of 12 or in the brand's Japanese snacks subscription boxes—is a must-try treat, especially for individuals who are interested in exploring cultural snack innovation.
The pear-infused butter cookies are made using nijiseiki-nashi (20th Century Asian Pear) from Tottori Prefecture (a coastal prefecture in southern Honshu, Japan's main island). 'Nashi' (Pear) is known "as one of Japan's oldest traditional fruits" and, therefore, the ingredient holds a special place in the country. Nijiseiki is "a fairly new type of pear that has been gaining popularity in Japan for its perfect balance of sweetness and tartness."
Those indulging in the pear-infused butter cookies will certainly enjoy the creamy blend of "white chocolate and fragrant pear," combined with a delicate crumbly texture.
