Hence, it was not surprising that a recent Facebook post got me all agog. Pamela, my cousin's wife, posted about the

What makes the cookies extra special is they are baked with love by a girl with autism. Yes, the talented Keen, who is behind these mouth-watering cookies, is autistic. Her loving sister, Wan Wai, hopes that this venture is an opportunity for Keen to develop, to learn, be confident, be empowered, and most importantly, be happy. Ever so supportive of her sister, Wan Wai manages the Facebook page, takes orders, assists in the baking and does the delivery. With so much love enveloping her, it is no wonder that Keen radiates happiness, which I saw when she came to deliver the cookies together with Wan Wai.
In addition to the Earl Grey Cookies, I also ordered their very popular Coffee Butter Cookies. I have yet to try them as they are meant to be a surprise for my dad. Keen had thoughtfully included a sample packet of her Cinnamon Butter Cookies topped with a Coffee Bean for me to try. Other cookies in Keen's kitchen are Matcha Butter Cookies with Black Sesame, Bittersweet Chocolate Butter Cookies with Almond Nibs, Semi Sweet Chocolate Butter Cookies and of course the Original Butter Cookies. All the cookies are sold in jars of 4 sizes (XS at RM12, S at RM14, M at RM16, L at RM26). The jars are patiently sealed by Keen, tenderly affixed with customised stickers and carefully packed into paper bags that are lovingly hand-drawn by this young lady. Everything is a labour of love.
I am so glad I have come to know of Keen and her cookies. Anyone who is interested to partake in some love can place their orders through http://www.facebook.com/keen 97/ or 012-5262637.
