Kaastengel Cookies II / Cheesy cookies

Selam...Merhaba from Turkey.

One of Classic Indonesian cookies. People said it's one of Dutch's heritage recipe beside some other Indonesian classic food.
It's my second Kaastengels recipe. You can use either first recipe or this recipe, both will give you nice and perfect Cheesy cookies for your tea time with family.

Kastengel or kue keju is Dutch-Indonesian cheese cookie in the form of stick, commonly found in the Netherlands and Indonesia. The name describe its ingredients, shape and origin; kaas is Dutch word for "cheese", while stengels is also Dutch word for "stick". Unlike most cookies, kaasstengels taste savoury and salty instead of sweet.

  • 250 gr butter, soften at room temperature
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 ¾ cup (350 g) AP flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons powdered milk
  • ¾ cup (100 g) grated cheddar cheese/ edam cheese
For topping:
1 egg yolk, beat with 2 teaspoon milk.
Enough grated edam / old cheddar Cheese for sprinkle.

How to make:
Beat margarine and egg yolks just until blended and smooth for few minutes (about 3 ~ 5 minutes). Mix in grated cheese, whisk to combine.
Combine flour, milk, salt and cornstarch, Using spatula or wooden spoon mix until well blended. Place the dough on table mat with plastic sheet, lay other plastic sheet on top of it to prevent dough being sticky to rolling pin, then roll with rolling pin approximately 7 ~ 10 mm thick. Cut with sharp nice into 1 cm x 7 cm length.

Arrange them on baking tray lined with baking paper, brush the surface with egg yolk and sprinkle with enough grated cheese.
Preheat your oven at 160 ⁰C, bake cookies until done and slightly golden brown on both surfaces (approximately 20 minutes). Remove from the oven and let stand few minutes to room temperature.
Arrange them in airtight jar.
