Recipe by Carol Bullock
A scrumptious Thai dessert that I can't resist, I first tried this in my favorite Thai restaurant here in Seattle. It never gets old!

Tasted good! Making the balls small is a good idea. Also be careful it is very filling. I made 12 small balls for 4 people and after eating a regular dinner we had a really hard time finishing them. I must have at least another 20 - 25 uncooked balls. I put them in the freezer and hope that they will taste good when they come out.

- 2 cups glutinous-rice flour
