On this sunny morning I decided to bake some cookies for a best friend as we were catching up later since each of us had gone on a long holiday away from home. And I've been wanting to try this recipe for quite some time, so I seized the opportunity to bake it.
My friend must have been in the same baking mood as me. She baked an assortment as featured below! So many Chinese New Year cookies and traditional Malaysian cookies. Of course, she knew my favorite was the chocolate nutty cookie-I'm all for anything chocolatey and/or nutty ^.^
Melt-in-Mouth German Cookies
125 grams butter, softened
40 grams icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)/ or 1 teaspoon of cocoa or matcha powder or Milo (optional)
125 grams potato starch
80 grams cake flour
- Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. Prepare a non-stick baking tray or line a tray with baking paper.
- Mix butter with icing sugar in a bowl. Then add vanilla essence or desired flavouring.
- Sift potato starch and cake flour into the butter mixture and incorporate it using a spatula until it becomes dough-like.
- Divide and roll the dough into 1 inch sized balls (you can leave it in the fridge to harden for 10-15 minutes if too soft to work with). Then press the dough ball gently with a fork.
- Bake for about 15 minutes or until the surface of the cookies is slightly browning.
