Coconut cream cookies that melt in your mouth and are often enjoyed as Chinese New Year snacks.

Just like pineapple tarts, 'kuih bangkit' is often enjoyed during festive seasons like Chinese New Year and Hari Raya in Malaysia. It has become the favourite of many because of its sweet coconut flavour. Trust me, these cookies would just melt in your mouth. A perfectly made 'kuih bangkit' crumbles and melts in your mouth the moment you bite into it. To make 'kuih bangkit' successfully, the moisture from the flour needs to be removed in order to create a light and fluffy texture. Ensure choosing a good quality coconut cream to make 'kuih bangkit' to get the most out of the coconut flavour. I realised it is better to sift the coconut milk to get a smoother texture. During baking, ensure that the heat does not brown the cookies because they are meant to be white (or very lightly browned) and may crack a little during the process. Arming myself with jars of 'kuih bangkit' , I shared them with my friends and they were totally blown away by the taste and texture. They kept asking for more! So, why not try out this recipe and introduce these cookies to your friends of other nationalities too? Store the cookies in air tight containers and they can be kept for up to 1.5 months.
