Black Pepper Cheese Stick

Have you ever came across any cookies' recipe that without sugar in it? Well, this is one of those fabulous recipe which I like about.... SUGAR FREE COOKIES! At first, I thought I've missed out the sugar but after checking back the recipe... oh wow, there's actually no sugar in this recipe! I bet this is a great news for those cookies lovers and especially diabetes.

Ingredients :

150gm butter
1 egg, lightly beated
150gm grated cheddar cheese
300gm flour
1/2 tspn baking powder
2/3 tspn crashed black pepper
1/2 tspn salt
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsbp roasted sesame seeds

Method :

- combine flour, baking powder, black pepper & salt together and mix well.
- rub butter in the dry ingredients with fingertips untill well combined.
- stir in parsley, sesame seeds & cheese, again mix well.

- add in egg to bind the mixture to form a firm dough.
- divide dough into halves and wrap with plastic sheets, then chill for 15 mins.
- roll dough onto a slightly floured baking tray, then cut strips with a roller cutter.

- brush on egg glaze or milk, sprinkle on some sesame seeds & paprika.
- bake at 180'c untill golden brown.

It tastes terrific even without sugar! And really really fragrant as well.

    Thanks a lot for such a kind comment. And glad that you enjoy it very much.

    As always, I'll never have enough time for anything but I'm willing to squeeze some time out for my hobby. Besides, this can also help to over come stress. I think I did OK!

    I'm sure when you do it with your full heart... they'll listen to your mind & fingers. So, have fun!

    Best wishes, Kristy
