Melts in the mouth Cookies

IMG_2741 These are called German cookies, I don’t know why so don’t ask!:P


250g butter, salted

80g icing sugar, sifted

250g potato starch

160g superfine flour

Method 1.

Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and slightly lighter in colour. DO NOT OVERBEAT!It will resulted in very soft, unmanageable and flat cookies!

2. Sift potato starch and flour together and then mix into the butter 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 (I put the dough into a piping bag and pipe out the cookies instead)

4. Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg C for 20-22 mins. Watch the cookies during the last few minutes to avoid getting golden cookies like mine:P Cookies should retain original color even after baking. But if you like golden cookies then go ahead and bake it longer.  It’s in fact more fragrant!



So which would you prefer….darker or light cookies?

Another version with slightly less AP Flour and more sugar:

250g salted butter

250g Potato Starch

100g AP Flour

110g Icing Sugar

Use cold butter and beat with icing sugar until creamy before adding sifted flours and mix with spatula before transfering (half portion at a time) into a piping bag and pipe out cookies.

Baked at 160C for 15 minutes, according to your preference on the color of your cookies.


Which design do you prefer?
