Kaastengels (Cheese Cookies) - 2nd Recipe & More Cookies & Cake I Baked 4CNY

My fifth cookies was another pineapple tarts, but it's those open tarts and it's cheesy pastry
I made them before but shaped into balls. You may view the recipe HERE

And my sixth cookies was chocolate chips cookies which is always loved by my family using THIS RECIPE


Now, the last cookies I baked, it's cheese cookies, Dutch influenced cookies which is very popular in Indonesia. I made these cookies before, recipe is HERE which is eggless
This time I used another recipe with eggs which is as satisfying

Recipe source: Natural Cooking Club (NCC)

What you need:

300g butter
100g grated edam cheese
100g grated cheddar cheese
400g plain flour
2 tbsp milk powder
2 egg yolks

Egg wash: 3 egg yolks, mix with 1.5 tbsp fresh milk
more grated cheddar cheese for sprinkle

  1. Mix butter and egg yolks briefly, just til combined. Add in both cheeses, mix well
  2. Add in flour and milk powder, stir well
  3. On a lightly floured surface, place the dough, cover with a clingwrap and roll til about 1cm thick
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut the flattened dough to form small rectangles, about 1x5cm each
  5. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle cheddar cheese
  6. Transfer to lined baking sheet and bake in preheated oven of 150degC for 20mins (original recipe stated 125degC but my cookies are bigger so I adjusted the temperature accordingly) til golden brown

This marks the last cookies I baked for this year's Chinese New Year. I think I never bake so much cookies for the festive season before haha..
I had many cakes I wanted to bake too, but in the end I only baked 1 cake, it's the delicious Sicilian Orange Cake which I ever baked before. You may view the recipe HERE
