I’m done thinking whether to make raya cookies for this year or just to buy..in the end I decided to just buy from the usual seller, my senior from school. At least I know how the cookies taste like so it will save me from the embarrassment – kuih raya tak sedap pon, rupa je cantik, rasa hampeh..bla bla..These days the 50pcs cookies usually cost around RM23-27, but when you calculate all other hidden cost – time, energy, effort spent doing the cookies, I think it is not worth it to make my own raya cookies.
If I were to make my own kuih raya perhaps it will be cornflake madu as it is the easiest and doesn’t test my skill with the dough. Not that Hubby is so fond of eating raya cookies, it’s just an obligation to have some for the celebration and perhaps for Hubby to bring to his office later.
And if I feel like it maybe I can bake a moist choc cake for Hubby to bring to whatever Raya pot luck the office might hold after the festive season. So do you think 5 types of raya cookies will be enough? heh!
