Unique savoury sweet cookies with the Asian Laksa flavor.
These are slightly softer cookies that has a melt-in-mouth texture.
So glad to try out making laksa cookies this year!
It’s the same recipe that I have used for the Tom Yum cookies last year, except that I lowered the temperature this time round, so that the cookies don’t brown so much.
They turned out slightly softer. The texture is somewhat between crunchy and melt-in-mouth cookies, and I love that!

I’m using the Dancing Chef laksa paste for this recipe.
If you would like a stronger laksa taste, you can add in some minced laksa leaf. You can also add in some coconut cream powder if you have them on hand – for the lemak taste!
How Do These Laksa Cookies Taste Like?
They are a mix of sweet and savory in one, with a slight spicy kick! I particularly like these slightly savory cookies, as the cookies won’t taste very sweet in taste.
Instead of being crunchy, these laksa cookies have a softer, melty texture.
