– 2 egg yolks
– 120 grams fine granulated sugar (2 tbsp. to put into the coconut milk)
– 180 ml of thick coconut milk

1. With low heat, boil coconut milk with 2 tbsp. of sugar (taken from 120 grams). Set aside to cool before use.


2. In the wok, with low heat, fry tapioca flour together with pandan leave until it is light and fluffy. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir the flour lightly.


3. Beat egg yolks and the balance of sugar until creamy.


4. To make dough : Alternately add flour and coconut milk to the egg mixture slowly. The last addition of flour is done bit by bit to get a good firm dough.
Important note : The dough should not be too dry or too wet. If it is too dry, the cookies will be hard and crack. If it is too wet, the cookies will expand until the pattern disappear.


5. Roll dough to 1/2 cm thick, cut out cookies with the cookie cutter. Lay cookies on a greased tray, bake at 170 degree C for 15 to 20 minutes.
