SAVOURY CHEESE COOKIES

Hellooo everyone......

Suddenly now a days my interest in making cookies has perked up. Last time was my first trial in making Checkerboard Cookies. Today I have made Savoury Cheese Cookies ......I am not very good at it that I must admit, but you must always try things instead of feeling daunted by it and giving up beforehand right .......so here you go.......



SAVOURY CHEESE COOKIES

INGREDIENTS

Processed cheese cubes grated
50 gms OR 3 + 1 no
Salted butter chilled cubed
100 gms
Maida / Refined flour
200 gms
Baking powder
¼ tsp
Pepper pdr
½ tsp
Salt                      
T.T.
Chilled Water
2 – 3 tbsp
Chilli flakes
As required, approx ½ tbsp

METHOD:

1.       On a clean work surface or counter mix together the cubed butter and 3 grated cheese cubes. Mix lightly with hands.



2.       To it add sieved maida, baking powder, salt and pepper.


3.       Rub together the cheese, butter and flour together till the entire things becomes of fine bread crumb consistency.

4.       Make sure you only use your finger tips to do this. The more surface area of your hands you use to mix, the faster the butter will start to melt because of the warmth.



5.       If the need arises use just a few spoons of water to get the dough together. Cover the dough in cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour.

6.       Divide the dough into balls a little larger than a marble. Flatten it in between your palms. You can also roll out the dough and cut out into shapes with a cookie cutter.


7.       Arrange the balls on a greased baking sheet keeping a little distance between two balls.

8.       Sprinkle a little of the remaining 1 cube of grated cheese over the balls. Also sprinkle a little chilli flakes on top.


9.       Bake in a preheated oven at 180° C for 10 – 15 min.

10.   Remove and completely allow to cool. Store in an airtight jar.
