[Samlip] Mini Yakgwa Cookies


Yakgwa are traditional Korean Honey Cookies. They were a royal dessert reserved for the King and his Royal Court during the Joseon Dynasty. Honey, during those times, was used as a medicinal ingredient. And these honey-soaked cookies were regarded as 'medicinal dessert'.

Nowadays, it's served as a light snack, alongside a cup of hot tea or coffee. Yakgwa is made by frying dough and soaking it ginger-infused honey for 6-8 hours. It has a slightly crunchy exterior with a soft-and-chewy inside. Many people say the taste reminds them of a donut or soft-dough cookie.

We chose Samlip's brand because the cookies are mini-sized. (We find that the regular-sized Yakgwa are often too big to finish.) These mini-yakgwa are also individually wrapped and easy to eat.

If you're looking for a simple snack to serve guests, try traditional Korean Yakgwa!

Mini Yakgwa Cookies

Pleasantly surprised at the size, taste and found it interesting how they are made. I handed some of them to my Maths student who had to work out the volume before eating them. They worked hard and enjoyed the taste and wanted more. I would love to try the regular size.

Samlip’s Mini Yakgwa Cookies: Delicious!

These cookies have become my addiction. Watch the video—thoughtfully provided by Katie and Daniel—and you will see that in the making of yakgwa, they are soaked for several hours in a honey syrup, yet they are neither too sweet nor sticky. They are perfect— perfectly delicious. They remind me of a honey-dip donut, but with a crisp exterior and dense interior. Soooo good. I also like the mini size and the fact that each cookie is individually wrapped. I have placed another order for more.

Sweet and yummy cookie

I really enjoy these cute and yummy cookies. Great with tea or coffee! I bring a few with me to work to help me tide over until lunch (if I get the mid-morning munchies) or eat as a mid-afternoon snack. The cookies aren't crunchy, but soft and dense. You can taste the honey flavor, but it's not too over-powering. I will definitely buy these again.
