In Hong Kong we used to have a restaurant we frequented about three times a week (sometimes more) for afternoon coffee and get together. They always served coffee with these cookies (the bottoms dipped in chocolate) and we LOVED them. But never knew the name. Seeing your photo, reading your recipe and I have FINALLY found my most favourite (but long-lost) cookie!!! Thank you SO MUCH for posting this, I can't wait to try them out. :))
NOTE: These can be eaten as is....OR do as I have and melt 2 cups chocolate chips in double broiler, spread on flat underside of one cookie, top with another cookie.
