Cookiecookie.my is our go-to brand for our favourite stuffed matcha choc cookies, so when we saw that the friendly baker had launched 2 more stuffed cookies, we knew we had to make the order.
The stuffed cookies all come in a box of 5 for RM30, and you can mix and match the flavours. Small highlight: one little touch this brand gives is little handwritten messages on the inside of the boxes. They’re usually cheery little notes, and we personally enjoy reading them. It’s a small gesture that brightens up our day.
Stuffed Hojicha Choc Almond: Hojicha is a flavour we’ve really grown to love over the past few years, and these cookies did not disappoint. Texture-wise, this cookie is very similar to the matcha cookies we adore, with the right balance of crisp to chew—if you know, you know.
For the hojicha taste, the roasted aroma of filling is just right. In terms of whether this is better than the matcha, we think it will defer to your own personal tastes. Are you team matcha or hojicha?
Stuffed Pandan Kaya Coconut: This is LEGIT the shiz. Sorry, our language has failed us. Descriptions around the table went to childhood favourites like kaya puffs, kaya balls, and kaya toast. Yes, you probably see the trend, the nostalgia is strong in this one.
The desiccated coconut on the cookies is a brilliant touch too, they add an extra element of enjoyment when you bite into them. Again though, we had a less adventurous taster in the office wonder, “Why put kaya into cookies, what’s the point?”, and we could only answer, “Why not??”, especially when it tastes THIS good.
Cookiecookie.my also added some freebies for us to try in the form of a dark chocolate brownie and a stuffed matcha brownie. The first thing we noticed about these is that…they’re really dark. As in, the colour is almost black. We did send a message to the baker about them, and he told us that it’s because he uses black cocoa powder.
Quick disclaimer before we continue: we were really too stuffed to have the brownies together with the cookies, so we tried the brownies 1 day later, heated up in the microwave for 15 seconds upon the baker’s recommendation.
Dark choc brownie: The texture of the brownies is quite heavy, we wonder if the slight powdery feel against the roof of our mouths is due to the cocoa powder. In terms of sweetness and flavour, they were balanced (kinda bittersweet), but we prefer even fudgier brownies.
Stuffed matcha brownie: This reminds us of the same oozy gooey matcha into their stuffed matcha cookie, which we love, so no complaints here. The matcha filling also helped to balance out the dryness/powdery feel of the dark choc brownie texture. The crispness of the edges also provides good contrast to that melty centre. No ice cream necessary for this goodie here!
It should also be noted that he’s still in the R&D process for the brownies. But if their other cookies is any indication, we’re pretty confident this baker is able to perfect them.
