Melt-in-mouth German Cookies

It was close to 11 pm, I've just finished with the chores as well as school task, I thought I still have 3 out of 5  energy level left.  I was craving to bake this cookies from 2 weeks ago, but there was always something else to bake with higher priority.

I decided to bake anyway otherwise it will intensely popping in my thought. The making was real simple. As always I put all ingredients in a food processor, press the button, shaped it and voilaa... a delicate moreish cookies in front of you before you knew it.  

Found this recipe in here, I reckon it's quite popular among Chinese blogger. Yeah .. and I made it, don't regret it. Recipe worth to try.

Melt-in-mouth German Cookies

125g butter
40g icing sugar
125g potato starch
80g plain flour
vanilla paste

1. Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and lighter in colour.
2. Sift in potato starch and flour, mix 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 (dip the fork in water after each press to prevent cookie dough from sticking to the fork).
4. Bake in preheated oven at 170 deg C for 15 mins, upper rack (need not bake till cookies turn brown).

  4. Elies, I think you shouldn't substitute potato starch in this recipe as it's the main star, I found mine in Asian grocer, potato flour also used in tempura making as well as other Asian food. So I suggest look for in asian aisle first bef baking shop
