Valerie's Kueh Bangkit

It has been a while since I last attended a baking workshop. Since I was free that day, I decided to accompany my friend to Valerie's Kueh Bangkit workshop in one of the the community centres. I heard from a few food bloggers that her cookies are so fantastic and melt in the mouth. Valerie taught the class that the coconut cream plays an important role in the melt in the mouth effect and she showed us how the cream should be cooked to get this effect. The cookies really look fantastic in the oven, puffing away.....

Unfortunately I must comment that the end products are quite disappointing!! There are no melt in the mouth effect at all. The cookies are so hard. My friend felt that it was a complete waste of time. Anyway, taste wise I find them ok and acceptable. The gula melaka ones are tastier even though they are harder than the plain ones

I am not sure too. I tried this recipe again in accordance to her recipe and they are still hard, just like what I have tasted in the workshop.
