Could it be BUCHI? This is made of rice flour dough rolled in sesame seeds and deep fried. The filling can be made of yellow/black mung bean paste or lotus seed paste. Buchi is the name used in Chinese restos in the Philippines. Not sure what it's called in other Chinese dialects.

Ya Grumblebee. Just read your link. Sounds like it. I'm surprised it's referred to as cookie. It's more like puff really.
