I know this season should be all about Christmas cookies. However, while baking all your sweet treats for the most wonderful time of the year, something savory may be just what you are craving for. So cheese nibbles it is. This recipe should get you around 50 nibbles.
- 1 cup of grated gruyère cheese
- 1 1/3 cups (175 grams) of flour
- ½ cup (125 grams) of butter
- 2 egg yolks
- ½ teaspoon of baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
This one will entail a bit of physical labor. On the plus side, you might burn off a few of the calories that you will consume when eating the cookies later, although the emphasis here is on the word few. Anyways, ideally you want to mix all your ingredients in a really large bowl or straight on the (clean) kitchen counter. Mix the flour, salt and baking powder and then add the butter in small bits. Afterwards, add the egg yolks, cheese and sesame seeds. Knead it all thoroughly until you have a smooth dough.
Distribute a bit of flour on the kitchen counter and roll out the dough to a thickness of about 5 mm/0.2 inches. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a knife to cut our rectangular shapes or use a cookie cutter of your choice. Then let the cookies bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes.
