If you’ve never had tapioca cookies before, it’s a must-try experience! These little cookies have a crumbly texture similar to a meringue cookie, but as you chew they turn into a creamy coconutty goodness in your mouth! With the aroma of coconut and pandan leaves, the fun texture, and the fact that they’re so tiny, I have a seriously hard time stopping myself from consuming too many of them! In fact, I just finished eating the batch I made for the video and now am craving more!

These cookies make a great edible gift as they last a long time in an airtight container, and they can be coloured to match the occasion. They’re also gluten-free by nature!
