2 days before Chinese New Year on 26th of January 2017, I met one of my Chinese customer somewhere at Somerset. She was very excited to see me. She told me she got something for me and I was wondering what it is that make her so excited about. She gave me love letter and let me tell you this is not what you think it is. For some of you who did not know it is one of those festive cookies that you can get during festive season such as Hari Raya or Chinese Lunar New Year.
In Malay we name it as Kuih Kapit and in English it is known as Love Letter. It is consider a wafer biscuit as it is crunchy and crispy. I have not been eating this biscuit for very long time. The only time I remember how it look like was in a form of wafer roll and the taste is coconut flavor. However I realized that now the Love letter have additional flavor to it. There are Chocolate Nutella and Peanut Butter flavor which was given by my Chinese customer.
However I notice that these kind of cookie such as Love Letter hardly been made nowadays for festive seasons. I remember when I was a child back then during Hari Raya house visiting, I always saw Love Letter on the table. To me Love Letter is consider one of the traditional festive snacks and the legacy of this cookie should be continue to the next generation. Hope that these kind of cookies would still continue to be exist.
