German Potato Cookies
These cookies have been popping up in blogs everywhere lately and being 'kiasu' (a Hokkien phrase which literally means scared of losing out) I didn't want to get left behind and jumped in the bandwagon too! Haha!
Sandy, melt in the mouth and at the same time light & tender with a buttery potatoe-y taste. Reminds me of melting moments cookies.
Recipe taken from 'Small Small Baker' here.
40g icing sugar, sifted
125g potato starch
80g superfine flour
1. Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and pale in colour.
2. Sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form a soft dough.
3. Roll into small balls (about 2cm in diameter), arrange on lined baking pan and press lightly with a fork (dip the fork in water after each press to prevent cookie dough from sticking to the fork).
4. Bake in preheated oven at 170 deg C for 15 mins.
