KUIH BANGKIT (less flour)
During Chinese New Year, Kuih Bangkit is one of the must cookie to be serve among friends and relatives. I don't know why but it has been a traditional since I was young. The sweet coconut milk fragrance attracts everyone attention even though it looks plain. It melts in the mouth, a little try, therefore you need some water to swallow, crisp and easily broken. I have baked this cookie twice this year. Don't add too much flour if the batter looks wet because it will turn hard if you leave it for 5-10min. Give it a go, I am sure you are gonna love it.
225g tapioca flour
3 pandan leaves cut into 3inch long
85g icing sugar
1 egg yolk
120ml thick coconut milk ( packet type accepted)
a drop of red coloring
