Cheese Sago Cookies

Today I’m sharing another recipe that my family love to eat as snack .  Very addictive with cheddar cheese ! YUM!  This recipe calls for sago flour that you can find  at any Asian store .  You can also replace sago flour with tapioca flour as well . I’ve tried both sago & tapioca flour in making this cookies & find them deliver the same soft , light texture .  I’ve replaced margarine with butter which  gives  a richer taste to this cheesy cookies .  As usual I’ve reduced the sugar just a little as I want to obtain a more savoury flavour  than the over powering sweetness .  And voila , melt in the mouth  cheese cookies with tasty rich buttery  flavour .  Another cookie to enjoy during Chinese New Year .

  1. Hi Kit,

    You still managed to buy sago flour at your place... It is not easily available here or maybe I didn't search hard enough :p

    Your cookies look wonderful... must be the melt-in the mouth kind :D


  2. Hi Kit,
    The name of the cookie already tells me it is has a light texture!
    Cheddar cheese, my kids would love it!
    Would love to try this one day!

  3. interesting..i wonder if they also taste similar to kuih bangkit only with the addition of cheese...but i think this dough is probably easier to handle as you can pipe it out. great cookies!
