The cookies might not last until raya but they don't mind about it. They just love making cookies and having fun while making them. This tradition of making cookies is part of my childhood tradition too. When we were small, my late mum used to teach us making raya at least 5 to 6 types of cookies. Those cookies would be distributed among our poor relatives and neighbours. Helping her in the kitchen was one of the unforgettable bonding time between us.
I'm teaching my daughters to make cookies now as a reminiscent of my childhood memory. I miss those moments and it's also make me appreciate my late mum more. She taught me a lot and I want to create a lot of sweet memories with my daughters too. Hopefully they'll remember our sweet memories and treasure the bonding between them too.
These are their big, fat chocolate chip cookies.
