German Cookies


I’m still busy…

really busy…

really really busy…

baking! :D

(This melt in the mouth cookies is adapted from 

125g butter, softened at room temperature
40g icing sugar, sifted
125g potato starch/flour, sifted
80g plain flour, sifted

1.Preheat oven to 170°C. Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper.

2.Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

3.Add the potato starch and plain flour, and mix to form a soft dough (do not worry if it looks sticky at this point. You should be able to pinch some off with your fingers and roll into a ball).

4.Roll into small balls (about 2-3cm diameter), arrange on the baking tray and press lightly with a fork to flatten and make indentation, dipping the fork in water after each press to prevent the cookie dough from sticking to the fork.

5.Bake in preheated oven for 15-17 mins (15 mins if you're making 2cm ones and 17 mins for 3cm ones) on the upper rack. The cookie will still look white when it comes out of the oven (this is normal). Allow to cool on baking tray and store in a tupperware once cooled.
