Thai Coconut Cookies: Khanom Sum Pun Nee

Today I come to you with a fun and easy Thai dessert called Khanom Sum Pun Nee (ขนมสัมปันนี). These are Thai coconut cookies which are made from tapioca flour mixed with coconut cream. The special feature of these cookies is that they are not baked 🙂 This dessert is often served on the occasion of traditional Thai weddings.

Ingredients for 3-4 portions:

  • 250g tapioca flour
  • 250g sugar
  • 500g coconut cream
  • jasmine flavour
  • food colouring (colours of your choice)
  • cookie moulds


First, roast the tapioca flour for 2-3 minutes on a low heat. Then set the roasted flour aside. Second, heat the coconut cream and sugar on a low heat until the mixture thickens and add some drops of jasmine flour. In the next step, pour this mixture onto the roasted tapioca flour and mix everything together well. Now take parts of the mixture and add some food colouring. Then knead the mixture until smooth. Finally press the mixture into your cookie moulds and take them off. Arrange your cookies nicely and you’re ready to serve!
