BUTTER MOCHI - Japanese Sweet Chewy Dessert

Jo Anne Sugimoto


It is an island favorite and a request by someone who is homesick. My mom's recipe, and now it's mine. The keikis (children) also love this dessert as it is chewy and sweet. Mochi is a very popular dessert for the japanese families in Japan also. The photo is not mine, it looks great! I will replace it with my very own photo when I make it again. ;+)
