INTRODUCTION

Happy new year and I am rather busy to adjust my daily workload since kids are schooling tomorrow.

Chinese New Year Recipes - Cassava Cheese Cookies (芝士薯粉饼 Biskuit Sago Keju)

I do not have much to talk about this cookie but I get to know this Indonesian cookie from the famous Singapore pastry shop Bengawan Solo. For a standard box, it was sold at S$19.80. I bought this cookie during one Chinese New Year but well before I started blogging. I like this cookie very much and I have bought additional boxes to give to relatives.

When I am preparing this cookie, I can’t help but to associate with kuih bangkit (Recipe: Traditional Kueh Bangkit)   as there are many similarities. The main similarities are there are no flour (gluten free) and only starches is used and the use of Pandan leaves and coconut milk. The main difference is that it uses butter (which kuih bangkit did not use any oil) and cheese to flavour the biscuit. As a result of using butter, the chances of success are much higher than kuih bangkit. Because of the oil, the starches will be evenly distributed and hence resulted in a melt in the mouth cookies.

I have read a number of Indonesian recipes and come out to this recipe. Usually I compared recipes, identify main ingredients and used the baking ratio that I am familiar with. The result is definitely a success, melt in the mouth cheesy biscuit.

Cassava cheese cookie is the name used by Bengawan Solo, and hence I used the same name. Cassava used because tapioca starch is used and please do not misunderstood that  tapioca flesh are used. . However, for this recipe, I have used sago starches instead.
