Marusei butter cookie


This is the Marusei butter cookie at Rokkatei in Hokkaido.

The other day my husband got this from his student.

I was so happy.

The cream is a blend of white chocolate, rum raisins and 100% Hokkaido milk butter.

It is so good.

It has been sold since 1977.

I think it is one of the best sweets in Hokkaido.
