Black Rice Cookies

Ketan Hitam Cookies
 
Ramadhan is tiptoeing to the second day today. Before we know, Ied Mubarak will be in front of us already, as close as our own nose, for sure. Cookies, cookies, cookies. Lebaran without cookies is just as impossible as cheesecake without the cheese. I’m not talking about unnecessary tradition that sometimes drives us crazy every year, but a jar of nice humble Lebaran cookies is just perfect to nibble while hanging out with the whole family after Ied prayer, you know, before all the guests arrive and the hectic begins. Or in the afternoon when you come back from the relatives’ house, tired –yet relieved it’s gotten over with, looking for something comforting. Something sweet and simple. And pretty.
 
Well, just the other day I had this urge to play with dough and piping bag, which I’m sure was one thing in common you and I always have. There were a half bag of black glutinous rice flour in my cupboard, a half bag of sago flour, and I was on my way to the melt-in-your-mouth, sweet, simple, comforting cookies that boast its exotic black color with such pride. “Yes, I’m black. And I’m proud of it.” You should be, ‘coz you’re dazzlingly gorgeous!
 
Ketan Hitam Cookies
(adapted from NCC’s Sagu Keju )
 
150 gr sago flour
200 gr black glutinous rice flour
100 gr margarine
50 gr butter
150 gr powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
65 ml thick coconut milk
 
How-to:

  1. Preheat the oven at 140 degree celcius. Lightly butter your cookie sheet.
  2. Beat margarine and butter until soft and fluffy. Beat in sugar, beat well. Beat in egg yolk, beat well.
  3. Mix together sago and black glutinous rice flour. Fold in this flour mixture to the butter dough, blend well.
  4. Add the coconut milk, blend well.
  5. With a piping bag and a big star tip, pipe the dough onto buttered cookie sheet. Garnish with walnut or almond, or whatever to your fancy. After all, it’s your cookies.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes. Let them cool on the cookie sheet on the rack.

 
Sweet Black
 
Note:

  • The sago flour gives melt-in-your-mouth effect in cookies. If you don’t have sago flour, tapioca or arrowroot flour will do the same effect.
  • Do not take them out of the cookie sheet right away, they easily crumble when hot, just like we do when our head is on fire. Let it cool, and the cookie will firm up. Afterward, you can safely transfer them into a nice jar, ready for Lebaran.

 
Happy piping!

  1. Slamat menjalankan ibadah puasa Mbak Ri.
    Itu cookies keliatan yummy, pengen coba (nyicip maksudnya, bukan bikin sendiri… maunya dibikinin). Eh Mbak, biar kate di sini byk green cardamom, tapi …ssst *bisik2* gak ada tepung ketan. Jadi aku bawa bbrp bungkus tepung ketan putih, tapioka jg, tapi lupa bawa tepung sagu😦
    Kesian yak.

    Bisa, Van, pake tapioka. Bikinnya bentaran banget kok. Asik pake nyemprot-nyemprot. Tepung ketan item bawa gak? ————Riana

  2. akhirnya nemu resep yg pake ketan item selain bolu,krn serumah ga cocok lidahnya ketan item dibikin bolu ktnya aneh!nyontek ya mba resep cookiesnya sapa tau pd doyan!met puasa mba!

  3. Aih, tepung ketan item bisa dibuat cookies? Makasih Riana, cocok banget punya stok tepung ketan item. Tapi nggak ada tepung sagu nih (maksudnya sagu tani kan?). Bisa diganti apa ya, tepung kanji? Atau tepung ketan putih?

  4. mba riana, kmr ak bkn nih, sesuai resepnya (tepung ktn nya jg ak ayak dl), tp knp hsl akhirnya seperti kukis pasir ya, warnanya jg jd abu2 (mirip warna abu gosok hiks hika)ga sperti pnya mba, kalo rasa sih enak, tp gr2 ‘nge-pasirnya’ itu, misuaku ga mau hiks hiks.. alamat ak habisin sendiri deh😀

    Punyaku juga kayak abu gosok kan? Hahaha… iya memang ngepasir. Ooh, kurang suka ya suamimu. Ya udah jualin aja ato bagi2 buat oleh2 asisten pulkam🙂 ——-Riana

  5. thx yah , Mbak resepnyah. Nha sayah pan nyuba tuh resep. Tapi…kok mbleber, yah jadi ya hampir polos ajah gituh, lekuk2 spuitnyah cuman timbul dikit pokokenyah hampir polos, degh. aroma, sih sedep mantep bangets tapi bentuknyah tidak begituh indah. Trus pas udeh jadi kok warnanyah enggak kecoklatan kayak punyak mBak Riana, yah? jadi agak keunguan gituh. Kualitas tepun ketan hitamnyah beda kali, yah?

    Nha pan inih resep diadaptasi dari sagu keju-nyah Bu Fat trus sekaliyan sayah mbikin sagu keju. Mumpung semalem habis belanja keju edam di makro. Gusti..lebih parah, mbleber habis. what’s wrong, yah? tak kecilin derajatnyah plus tak tambahin sagu tetep ajah mbleber meski tak separah yang awal. Ya udeh akhire blue baking, trus sisa adonan tak bungkus masuk kulkas. Entahlah mauh diapain…

    thx for answering, rus kapan mauh membantai poto2 sayah?

    Meleber, biasanya karena kelamaan ngocok mentega/margarinnya. Gak usah sampe putih, cukup sampe lembut aja, lalu stop. Satu menit speed tinggi deh.
    Kalo warna, punyaku ini antara abu gosok dengan kecoklatan gitu deh. Kalo keunguan bukannya malah cakep yak? ———Riana
