Anyway, it's not that bad cuz I've found these cookies and decided to occupy myself for a very short while to do what I like in the kitchen! As for the result, to my point of view, the cookie is a cross between shortbread and cracker..it's flaky..crispy , yet mildly chewy and buttery..and top of everything, it couldn't be better to be paired with cheese and sweet chutney !
Here is my version ( adapted from here )
1 cup AP flour
114 g butter, softened
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup cornflake
dash of cayenne pepper & paprika
Dried parsley & grated cheddar to sprinkle
Allow cold ingredients to come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 400°. Combine butter and cheese well with spoon or hands. Mix in flour, cayenne and paprika. Add salt and pepper to taste and fold in cornflake ( it will be crumbled while combined ). Roll into small balls and flatten; place on cookie sheet and sprinkle with some grated cheese and parsley. Bake 10-15 minutes. Let cool fully before serving; store in an airtight container or freeze. Be forewarned that these crackers are quite dry and flaky (hello, butter!), not moist and chewy like a cookie. Makes approx 18-20 cookies.
