This one clever cookie dough can be adapted to make four different Korean-style cookies: Black Sesame, Ginger, Matcha Green Tea and Almond.
Plus this dough freezes well, so it’s ideal for celebrations and parties. You can make the basic dough ahead, add flavours and freeze it. On the day you need to bake the cookies, just thaw the dough in the fridge.
To get smooth cookies with sharp edges you must chill the dough for at least an hour in the fridge – even better, chill it overnight. Then roll the dough out between two sheets of baking paper. It will soften and get sticky fast in the hot and humid weather we have in Singapore, but it will still stay flat and sharp.
Psst, they’re great to snack on while you binge-watch the latest K-dramas. Every time there’s a coffee shop scene, you can eat a cookie – it’s K-drama bingo!
