Kueh bangkit

I made some pandan kueh bangkit. It's about a month till Chinese New Year. This year though, I'll be overseas during the lunar new year, so I won't have time to make many things. :( Boo..

Oh well. I used the same recipe as I used last year. So they basically look and taste the same :P

Kueh bangkit
Makes about 150 bite sized pieces

500g tapioca starch
250ml coconut cream
200g sugar
3 egg yolks
1 tsp pandan essence

Dry fry tapioca starch in a large clean dry wok for about 30mins, on low heat.
Leave to cool overnight or for a few days.
Melt sugar in coconut cream over low heat. Remove from heat.
Allow to cool slightly before adding egg yolk.
Add in flavouring.
Slowly add liquid into tapioca starch until a dough is formed.
The dough should be matte and not glossy, so add the liquid bit by bit so you don't add too much. (If you do, you'd have to dry fry some more tapioca starch..)
Roll out and cut using cookie cutters.
Bake in a preheated 160C oven for about 15-20mins (depending on the size of your shapes.)
Allow to cool completely on cooling rack before storing in an air tight container.
