Love letters..

This is a picture of a tradtional "cookie" known as "kuih kapit" or fondly known as "love letters". It's made from eggs, flour, sugar and coconuts milk and some other ingredients I think, and handmade..

There is a tong-like object for it, where you burn it over charcoal fire for maybe 3-5 minutes until it turns a golden brown and then take it out and when it's still hot, you have to fold it quickly or roll it..

This is a favorite of mine and you can get it for Chinese New Year or Hari Raya Eid Fitri. It's however very fragile and can be reduced to crumbs with just a little too much pressure or if it falls down. :-)
