#BUROSupportsLocal: IG-worthy Raya cookies to order from online bakers in the Klang Valley
Cookies are to Raya what rendang is to ketupat. One would, quite simply, be incomplete without the other. In the weeks leading up to Raya, they’re a favourite buka puasa treat, a snack to munch on while watching Netflix, and an easy (yet thoughtful) gift to just about anyone with a sweet tooth.
That said, with new Covid-19 cases (still) reported every day, you may not want to step out of home to stock up. Or you may not have the time to go off your usual route to try something new—especially with traffic now returning to normal. And if you’re getting Raya cookies as gifts, having them delivered on your behalf is now the norm, rather than an exception.
With these in mind, we’ve rounded up a list of online bakers who will deliver Raya cookies that look as good as they taste, either to your doorstep or that of your lucky recipient.
Known for modern-day desserts, Elevete blends old and new by bringing a contemporary touch to Hari Raya faves. Spark joy by sending (or receiving) the Mesra Delights (RM98): a wholesome box of Raya cookies galore with Pineapple Tarts, Ketupat Design Butter Cookies, Raspberry Chocolate Bonbons, and Nutella Pods.
Another photogenic choice for your kuih Raya table is the Aneka Aidilfitri Platter (RM105). Great for sampling a variety of treats, it comes with Pandan Gula Melaka Cake Bites, Nutella Pods, The Batik Indulgence (kek batik with chocolate ganache), Ondeh Ondeh Roulade (pandan sponge with coconut buttercream, gula Melaka sugar crystals, Hawaiian coconut flakes and mini pandan leaves), as well as premium dates.
An assortment of beautiful cakes and cake bites can be ordered to go with the Raya Specials, available until 27 May. Elevete Patisserie is also available on Cakerush, Cake Together, Foodpanda, Beepit and Grab.
Splatter is delivering Sekotak Riang Raya this festive season. In its Cookie Dream Box (RM120) is “a delectable set of the most addictive treats handmade with plenty of love in individual jars”. In each box are Tahini Cookies, Triple Dark Chocolate Cookies, and the intriguing Onde-Onde Mini Macarons.
Fans of cookies and kuih will be delighted by the Raya Kuih Platter: Manis Memories (RM150). This traditional platter features “favourite kuih-muih in a kaleidoscope of colours, freshly-steamed by halal-certified kuih makers”. There’s Kuih Puteri Ayu, Kuih Ketayap, Kuih Onde-onde, Kuih Lapis Beras, Kuih Sago Rose, Biskut Semperit Dahlia, gourmet dark chocolate dates, and gourmet pistachio chocolate dates.
Preorders are open now for delivery between 30 April to 16 May.
Baked KL has two Raya gifts sets to choose from. The small box set (RM80) contains two medium-sized jars of cookies ranging in weight from 180g to 220g. If you’re getting these as gifts for a larger group, the large box set (RM129) has two full-sized jars weighing from 320g to 480g.
The difference in heft comes down to which two cookie flavours you ultimately pick. There’s Eggless Honey Tahini, Triple Choc Chocolate Chip, White Cranberry Choc Cornflakes, Vegan Choc Chip, Pineapple Bomb, and Vegan Pineapple Bomb.
Ben & Chinta
For the festive season, Ben & Chinta’s signature cookies come in two sizes: Mini (RM20 for around 20 pieces) and Mega (RM40 for twice the amount of treats as the Mini). The signature flavours are Cookies Monster, Almond Button, Strawberry Shortbar, Butter Cookies, Cereal Treats, Cornflakes, Chocolate Pecan, and Milky Cashew.
Do also grab this chance to try the two limited-edition cookies, made especially for Raya: Batang Burok (available in Mini and Mega sizes) and Semperit Dahlia (Mega only). For gifting—or to gift yourself the joy of unboxing a beautiful package—you can get the Raya Gift Box containing your choice of six Mega-sized cookies (RM250) or six Mini ones (RM130).
If you or your loved ones are feeling health-conscious, good news: the Petite Raya Gift Box (RM70) comes with three Mini cookie jars. All gift boxes include Ben & Chinta custom-made ‘duit Raya’ packets and a Raya card.
K&S By Amni Rahman
The K&S in ‘K&S by Amni Rahman’ is short for ‘knead and stuff’—a homage to their signature choux. These come in Milk Chocolate, Strawberry Cheesecake and Hazelnut Praline flavours.
To brighten the festive season, Amni has also rolled out four types of cookies that will look aesthetic in your #Raya2021 pictures. These are the Nestum Shortbread Cookies, Chocolate Button Cookies, Rainbow Eggless Cookies, and Caramel Cranberry Cornflakes.

Each jar is priced at RM 35 for about 40 pieces of cookies.
