I Was on the Verge of Dying From Overwork, so I Ended Up Getting Married to a Prince From a Neighboring Country – Chapter 23

Chapter 23: Cookie

On the table, prepare the ingredients.

There are various types of cookies, each with its own set of ingredients and preparation methods.

Let’s keep things simple this time.

Stick to the recipe first and avoid being creative.

When you get good at it, you can arrange and devise your own ideas.

It is the same as the grantmaking technique.

“The ingredients are here.”

“Just three?”

“Is that how you make cookies?”

“I believe so.”

I had three ingredients ready.

Soft wheat flour.


And a dark yellow vegetable oil-based ingredient.

All of the ingredients are common in everyday dishes and are not particularly unusual.

I’ve previously used these ingredients.

“Oneesama! How do you make cookies?”

“I want to know that too!”

“Then we’ll make it while we’re talking. Let’s go over it again because I only learned it yesterday.”

First, place the wheat flour in an appropriate-sized bag.

It doesn’t have to be a bag, but I’ve read that this is the most convenient method.

Then comes the sugar.

His Highness prefers it a little sweeter, so a little more.

Other ingredients can be added to taste.

Combine the two ingredients, seal the bag, and shake.

“You shake it!”

“Yes—The flour will be fluffier as a result.”

“It looks like fun!”

It’s definitely a bit of fun.

But your arms get tired.

Check the contents from time to time, and add the third ingredient when there is a good amount of air in the flour.

“What’s that, sister?”

“Well, it’s called margarine, and it’s made from vegetable oil.”

“Margarine! The kind that goes on bread! “

“That’s how it’s usually used.”

It was a common ingredient among aristocrats and royalty.

I’m not sure how it’s made, but it’s delicious and popular.

It’s time to rub in the margarine after it’s been added.

All of the ingredients combine and become elastic.

Rub it in firmly until no powdery residue remains.

This requires a lot of strength as well.

Given my lack of strength, it could be a good exercise to strengthen my grip.

Continue rubbing while you think about it.

Examine the contents to see if the powder is still present.

“Okay. I think this is enough.”

The cookie dough is now complete.

A faint sweetish odor is detectable at this point.

The added sugar in the cookie dough is probably what makes it smell so sweet.

It goes well with the margarine flavor.

I remove the dough from the bag.

The dough I pulled out resembled a round rice cake.

The next step.

I use a thick wooden stick to stretch it out.

It will not bake properly if it is too thin or too thick.

Roll the wooden stick until it is as thick as the cookies you often see.

“If we bake them like this, we’ll have a big cookie!”

“Great! Let’s bake a big cookie, sister!”

“Fufufu, that sounds fun, but you won’t be able to eat it with your mouth if it’s too big, will you?”

“That’s not true! If you open your mouth a lot…”

Leo-kun opened his mouth wide.

He stares at the large piece of dough while silently opening his mouth.

Leo-kun closes his mouth.

“I can’t get in at all…”

“Of course!”

Leo-kun was depressed when he found out the reality.

Poor Leo-kun, but he’s adorable.

This contradiction is one of the things that makes me smile.

“We won’t be able to eat them all at once, but we’ll share; next time, we’ll make bigger cookies.”

“Really? Yay! “

“Onesama is a wonderful person. After all, she is Oniisama’s wife.”

That compliment makes me feel a little embarrassed…

Since you are being praised, let’s be honest and happy.

Leo-kun’s innocent smile was also lovely, so I’d like to try to make it someday.

Meanwhile, I was able to perfectly roll out the cookie dough.

It’s now time to shape them.

We’ll take the safe route and bake round cookies.

There are punching tools in the kitchen.

Since I’ve been given permission to use it, I’m grateful that I can borrow it.

The frame is placed in the dough.

just like stamping.

Leave a certain amount of space.

Finally, remove the frame.

“Yeah, I think this is how it’s supposed to look.”

“It’s perfectly round!”

“I think I can eat you now!”

“All that remains is to bake it.”

The cookie dough is shaped and placed on a special plate.

There are many tools and appliances in the kitchen that you don’t find in normal households.

One of them is this.

A magical device that uses heated air to heat food and can also be found in restaurants.

The evolution of these magical tools has enriched our country and people’s lives.

In the magic tool, a plate lined with dough is placed.

Avoid getting burned because the temperature is high.

The baking time is approximately 20 minutes.

We’ll have to wait a while for that.

“Will it cook properly? I can’t wait to eat it!”

“It’s okay because Oneesama is making it.”

They are also looking forward to the cookies being baked.

It’s not often that royalty gets to go into the kitchen and cook for themselves, let alone watch them cook.

We’re going to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

And after 20 minutes.

“I think it’s done.”


I take it out slowly so that I don’t burn myself.

The baking was—not too shabby.

The cookies were vibrantly colored.

“It’s finished!”

“They smell good.”

“We should wait for them to cool before tasting them.”

In the kitchen, there is also a magical tool for cooling it down.

According to what I’ve read, it’s moist right after baking but crisps up as it cools.

So we waited a while longer to ensure they had cooled.

After a while, each of us takes a piece and places it in our mouths.



All the first voices overlap.

Rather than saying it was delicious, I was surprised that it was made into cookies.

Because this is my first time, I’m relieved that I got it right.

The flavor is, well, average.

It has the flavor of a safe cookie.

“They’re delicious and sweet!”

“As one would expect from Oneesama!”

“Thank you very much. In the future, I’ll experiment with different flavors.”

merely a cookie.

That makes them happy.

Then I’ll make something even better for them.

Then they’ll be happier.
