Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cream Cheese Butter Cookies


Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cream Cheese Butter Cookies

German Butter Cookies are known for its distinctive melt-in-your-mouth texture. I've made some the other day based on this basic recipe from the Healthy Food for My Baby FB group: 125g unsalted butter, 40g icing sugar, 125g potato starch, 80g all-purpose flour.

To make the savory version of these addictive German Butter Cookies, I add cream cheese and use salted butter. They turn out to be so yummy!


​Ingredients:
(Makes 75 small cookies)

​250g salted butter, room temperature
​50g ​icing ​sugar

100g cream cheese, room temperature
250g potato ​starch
​160g all-purpose flour



How to:

​1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line baking trays (you'll need more than one tray) with baking sheet.

2. Use an electric mixer to beat ​butter​, icing sugar, and cream cheese in a mixing bowl until light and ​fluffy.

3. Sift potato starch​ and all-purpose flour​ in another bowl. In three additions, add flour into the butter mixture. Use a spatula to mix well.

4. After the mixture comes together, use your hands to form it into a soft ball of dough. Leave the dough to chill in the fridge for about 10 minutes.

5. ​Roll the dough to form small balls. Place them on the prepared baking trays. Dip a dessert fork in water and press it down gently on the balls to create indentations.

6. Bake in preheated oven for about 17-18 minutes.

7. Remove the tray from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for about 8 minutes. Transfer them onto a cooling rack to cool further before storing in airtight containers. Or eat them while they are cooling down. ;)
