Recipe: Cheese Sago Cookies (Kue Sagu Keju)

Tuesday, July 07, 2015

Hello, today I want to share you guys how to bake cookies by using unique main ingredient: Sago flour. Sago flour is very familiar in Asia, specially in my country - Indonesia, if you're not in Asia regions, maybe you could get the flour from your local Asian market/mart.

This cookies are very famous in Indonesia, specially in Ramadan and Eid occassion. It's like some kind a tradition, like you guys having Turkey or any other food in Christmas ect (even we can randomly eat Turkey or these cookies any other time /duh), but they're more likely iconic foods that most people in Indonesia 'must have' in their home. There are several iconic/tradition foods that our family always have for Ramadan and Eid, such as Ketupat (compressed rice cakes), Rendang, Opor Ayam (yum!), Nastar cookies (pineapple cookies), and many more.

But, in this post I would like to share recipe for Cheese Sago Cookies, or famously named: Kue Sagu Keju.

300 gram sago flour
150 gram unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
125 gram confectioneners sugar
2 yolk eggs
100 gram cheese (grated)
100 ml water

How to cook:
1. In a large bowl, add: unsalted butter and confectioners sugar, fold with spatula or wooden spoon. Then by using mixer, combine them until soft.
2. Then add yolk eggs, and continue mixing.
3. In this step, I stop using mixer and continue using wooden spoon to fold the combined ingredients. Then, add: sago flour and grated cheese, gently fold the mixtures over and repeat until well combined. Add water to the mixtures, and fold until soft.
4. In a single action, put the mixtures into the pipping bag, cut the end and pipping out the small round of roses. I used 2D flower spuit. Also, don't forget to use perchament or baking sheet.
5. Preheat over for about 700C for about 20 minutes.
6. Once we're resfinished pipping the mixt, put into the oven 70 Celcius for about 30-45 minutes (or until the cookies look golden).

Feel free to ask me anytime about the recipe. I got this from several google-research, so this recipe credits to all brilliant people who shared their cheese sago cookies recipe. Good luck!
