Khanom Phing, or Soften Cookies

I had to work quick to write about these, as you can see, half of them have been eaten. By my beautiful Bride. Called khanom phing in Thailand, they translate as Soften Cookie from the Vietnamese (where these particular ones are made) - ok, I wouldn't translate them as that, more like sweet meltaways. They come in coconut flavour, which are white, and durian flavour, which are yellow. So, these are durian flavour.

Popping them in your mouth, they melt immediately. You can smell the durian flavour as you open the, admittedly cheap but cute, bear container, but they don't really taste like durian, and certainly these are mostly sugar with a little tapioca starch.
