11 Delectable Cookies to Sweeten Up Your Day

11 Delectable Cookies to Sweeten Up Your Day

Chewy, crunchy, salted and simply buttery, there are so many different kinds of cookies for everyone to enjoy on National Cookie Day.

Cookies have been around since the 7th century and while what defines a biscuit and cookie depends on where you are in the world,  it’s been generally accepted that cookies are softer and chewier than their biscuit cousins. With National Cookie Day just around the corner, we've come up with a list of delicious cookies for you to bake and enjoy on this special day; best paired with milk, or better yet, Teh Tarik for a sweet afternoon delight.

1. Rosette Cookies

Not only are these Rosette Cookies incredibly pretty, they don’t require an oven to make. The method of cooking these cookies couldn’t be more different, and is the perfect excuse to get a fun tool (a simple rosette maker in this case) to work with in your kitchen. It only takes a minute to cook each cookie, and you can dust them with icing after for a sweeter finish.

2. Ondeh-Ondeh Mochi Cookies

Love both Mochi and classic Nyonya Ondeh-Ondeh? Combine them together in the form of these addictively chewy Ondeh-Ondeh Mochi Cookies for a longer lasting sweet treat that is both fun to make and a delight to nibble on during your afternoon tea.

3. White Chocolate Oreo Delights

Oreo lovers rejoice! These White Chocolate Oreo Delights elevates your regular Oreo cookies with an added crunch and is a great way to use up that open pack of Oreos that might have gone a little soft. Like classic Oreos, these cookies are best enjoyed with milk or even with Citrus Masala Chai if you like a little spice in your milky beverage.

4. Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies

Marry your favorite two snacks – chocolate chip cookies and potato chips – and you’ll get a batch of sweet yet savory Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies that's doubly addictive! While this recipe might raise some eyebrows, it’s actually great for those who love a little bit of salt in their sweets. If you like sea salt gula melaka ice cream or salted caramel popcorn, you should definitely give this recipe a try. 

5. Pumpkin & Salted Egg Mochi Cookies

If you love salted egg products, these Pumpkin & Salted Egg Mochi Cookies would be the ideal afternoon teatime snack for you! Most, if not all, salted egg chips already come with a dash of sugar, so combining sugar and salt is a foolproof way to concoct some addictive desserts. Pumpkin is also one of those versatile ingredients that work well in both sweet and savory dishes, making it the perfect main ingredient for these cookies.

6.  Delectable Chewy Milo Cranberry Cookies

Milo is a go-to malt drink that many Asian households have, so why not use it in your baked treats as well? These Delectable Chewy Milo Cranberry Cookies is easy to make for the weekend, and if you don’t have cranberries, nuts and raisins also pair well with the milo base for a malt-astic cookie.

7. Peanut Butter Spider Cookies

While Halloween only comes round once a year, these adorable Peanut Butter Spider Cookies can be refashioned for literally any holiday as you can decorate them however you want. Chocolate and peanut butter make a classic combination in any dessert, and having the best of both worlds means these cookies will definitely be snapped up quickly!

8. Toothsome Milo Krispies Cookies

There’s usually two camps among cookie lovers (isn’t that most of us?) – those who favor soft and chewy cookies and those who prefer super crunchy ones. These Toothsome Milo Krispies Cookies will definitely appease the soft and chewy cookie lovers, as rice puffs and corn flour give these hearty cookies the coveted chewy texture. Drizzle some molten chocolate on top before serving for a luxurious look and sticky sweet finish.

9. Addictive Flourless Peanut Butter Gula Melaka Cookies

It’s not easy to find flourless options in bakeries when it comes to cookies, so why not whip up your own? These Addictive Flourless Peanut Butter Gula Melaka Cookies are chock full of protein and peanut butter holds the cookie together well for the ideal flourless midday crunch.

10. Jam Cookies

Jam Cookies have that wonderful surprise at the center that adds a slight tart sweetness to the cookie, not to mention a gooey and sticky texture that lingers on the tongue. If you have a ton of jam sitting around the house (or chocolate for that matter), it’s a great way use them up while adding color and texture to your cookies. Made too many of them? Pack these eye-catching cookies into air-tight jars to give away – their bright colors make for a pretty present!

11. Cat Tongue Cookies (Lidah Kucing)

Love that melt-in-your mouth buttery feel? These Hari Raya Cat Tongue Cookies (Lidah Kucing) give you just that, and no toppings or glaze is necessary as that buttery taste is just so addictive on its own. Even without the Cat Tongue cookie mold, you can easily pipe or slice the dough thinly (freezing it overnight would make it easier to slice) into round or rectangle shapes for equally yummy cookies.
