That is why I tell my kids they can make Eid cookies if they wanted to, and lucky for our family, my daughter prefers making cookies to cakes. These here cookies, are baked by the hands of three of my children, for Eid. Traditionally, Malaysians make all sorts of cookies for Eid Al Fitr, due to our custom of having guests throughout Shawwaal but especially during the first few days. When guests come unannounced, but are nonetheless somewhat expected, the presence of these Eid cookies relieve the hosts from scattering to the kitchen to whip something up several times a day, several days a week.
My children attained the recipe for this cookie from one of the library books they happened to have lying around at the time. Fortunately though, the recipe is online too on PopularCookieRecipes.com.
