Salted Egg Yolk Cookies

My third cookies I baked this year. The ever popular salted egg yolk cookies. I saw them everywhere. I must try too :)
Happy with the result. A combination of sweet and salty in each bite. Very addictive. Yum!




Recipe is from Zoe of Bake for Happy Kids
Decided to choose this recipe among a few others as I was convinced the dough is easy to handle. This is important for me when doing cut out cookies in order to complete the process in full happiness haha..

What you need:
(below is double recipe)

170g unsalted butter, room temperature
80g caster sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 cooked salted egg yolks, mashed
250g all purpose flour
20g corn flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten, to glaze
chia seeds to sprinkle (original recipe used black sesame seeds)

Method:
  1. Beat butter, sugar and salt til light and fluffy
  2. Sift in flour, corn flour and baking powder and mix gently with spatula til the flours are absorbed
  3. Add in mashed salted egg yolks and stir til evenly incorporated. Gather the crumbly dough to form a soft pliable dough. Wrap using cling wrap and keep refrigerated for at least 30mins
  4. Line cookie sheets and preheat oven to 170degC
  5. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll to about 6mm thickness (original recipe rolled to 3mm thickness) and shape using your preferred cookie cutter
  6. Brush the cookies with the beaten egg yolks and sprinkle with chia seeds. Bake for 15mins (mine was about 25mins as the cookies are bigger in size) and let cool in the tray for about 10mins before transferring them to a cooling rack. Cool completely
