Savory Crispy Cheese Cookies

 
This Christmas, I’ve decided to make these savory crispy cheese cookies over the usual sugar cookies. You’ll need only six ingredients to pull off this recipe. These cheese cookies have a crisp texture on the outside and crumbly on the inside. I love munching on them with a piping cup of hot tea. They are good, and I mean it.

The white pepper lends a gentle warmth with every bite and if possible, do not try to skip this ingredient. The cookie dough is really easy to handle and you could cut them into any shape you fancy. Give your sweet tooth a break and give these addictive cheese cookies a try!

 

Ingredients:

2 cups (250 g) all-purpose / plain flour
1 stick (125 g) unsalted butter – cold, cut into cubes
1 cup (125 g) cheddar cheese – grated
1 egg yolk
2 tsp ground white pepper
½ tsp salt
1 egg – beaten

Garnish:
Black sesame seeds (optional)

Makes approx 40 cookies depending on shapes and size

You could grate your own cheese like I did or get those that are already grated.
