German Cookies 德国酥饼



This German cookie do not need much introduction, very famous among MY & SG bloggers since last year..I also don't want to miss this boat, bought a small pack of potato flour and try out. The 1st batch was gone into rubbish bin as I was wrongly added cake flour with corn flour, totally no way i can hold the cookies after baked, LOL !!

I saw Mins' blog did it with adding green tea and cocoa. I tried with green tea, the taste is ok..still prefer original version.

** Anyway, this cookie it seem not well received by my family, a bit plain for our taste buds especially my husband dislike too fragile and melt-in-mouth cookie. I'm ok with this cookie, just feel a bit dry when the cookie melted and hit my tongue.

Method
1. Beat butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy. Sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form soft dough.
2. Roll into small ball, arrange on lined baking pan and press lightly with a fork.

SO easy to make...must try this soon :-) My family loves buttery cookies!
By the way, that Ben Tdi Wei Restaurant you enquired, it's not in 1-Utama Mall...it's in CENTREPOINT, but still in Bandar Utama.

Sonia, yours are very nice. I couldnt get the kind of effect like yours.

Sonia, I tend to agree with you. I found the cookies too blend for my liking, and too much flour. I tried it last year and gave the whole tub away. :p Well, at least I tried and I know I don't like it! You too! A combination of colours do look attractive though!

Jeannie said...

I manage to bake this cookies yesterday and the result turn out to be good. However, I have one question here, how to packed this? I try to put the cookies into the plastic container with red lid (the normal one people used for CNY cookies), but it seems difficult to handle the cookies when you want to take it out from the container. Any ideas?
