Yummy cheese cookies
I can't remember where I got the original recipe from, it's handwritten without any references in my little recipe-collection book.

All ingredients are in a 1:1 ratio so you can easily make more or less cookies.

Instead of the sesame seeds you could also use poppy seeds.

  • How to bake a cracker. Cheese Cookies - Step 1
    Step 1

    Prepare a baking tray by covering it with baking paper.

    Preheat the oven to about 220 degrees Celcius.

    Step 2

    Put all the ingredients except for the sesame seeds into a large bowl.
    So that's:
    100 grams of flour
    100 grams of grated cheese
    100 grams of butter (cut up in smaller pieces)
    a pinch of salt
    a pinch of pepper

    Knead the ingredients thoroughly so you can make a firm ball out of the dough.

    I usually put on latex gloves so that the dough will not stick under my nails and I won't have sticky hands.

    Step 4

    Pull off a small piece of dough and roll it between your palms into a little ball.

    Put the ball on the baking tray and flatten it a bit.

    Step 5

    Fill your whole baking tray. Put the cookies-to-be a bit apart from each other because they will flow out slightly.

    I always have to bake in batches because our oven is so small.

    Optional

    Sprinkle sesame seeds over your cookies with a teaspoon and gently press in the seeds a bit, so they'll stay put.

    The golden brown results of my first batch.
    As you can see, the sesame seeds don't burn to a crisp, they stay nicely brown.
