280 g butter place in room temperature for 5 minutes to soften it.
180 g caster sugar
½ tsp salt
50 g milk powder
40 g egg yolks from 2 – 5 eggs
½ tsp vanilla essence
½ tbsp pandan paste

80 g ground almond
30 g desiccated coconut

Dough [Set C]
360 g top flour
30 g glutinous rice flour

Dough [Set D]
5 tbsp milk use as desired
20 g coconut oil
200 g butterscotch chips
60 g gula melaka chop into small pieces
50 g dessicated coconut add more as desired

Wrap the cookie dough in a clingwrap and chill for 1 hour.

Step 2: Cut the cookie dough and set aside
Remove the cookie dough from the chiller. Let it sit in room temperature for 3 minutes till dough softens. If the dough is still hard and crumbly, add in 1 tbsp of milk, and use your hand to knead it gently. Repeat this step till the dough becomes pliable.

Step 3: Prepare the topping
In a microwave-safe bowl, add in buttescotch chips and coconut oil. Transfer to the microwave oven and heat it up for 10 – 20 sec. Remove from oven, stir to combine mixture. If the content has not fully melted, heat it up for another 10 sec.

Step 4: Assemble and serve
Scoop a spoonful of melted butterscotch onto the cookie.
Decorate ½ of the cookie with gula melaka, another ½ with desiccated coconut.
Leave it in room temperature till the butterscotch hardens and it’s ready to be eaten! Do store the cookies in air tight containers.
