3 ingredients Sugar-Free Cheese Cookies

The cookie recipe has just 3 ingredients and very easy to make. The recipe I have from Russian baker. Personally, I don’t bake very often but when I see the recipe I tried next day! First time I made mistake and didn’t freeze cheese completely, so my dough stock to a table. I managed to make cookies and learned my lesson. So now I leave cheese and butter overnight in a freezer. From ingredients in the recipe, I had 18 fish. You can cut on half the recipe for the first time to try.

Cookies can have different toppings because the neutral taste of dough and we can have an endless variety of toppings. My family favorite is with sesame seeds topping. However, you can sprinkle with sugar as well or spices.

They come out very layered and pleasant taste.

We need:

9 oz (250 g) butter (frozen like a stone)

6 1/2 oz (180 g) soft creamy cheese (frozen like a stone)

5 1/2 oz (150g) flour

Sesame seeds to sprinkle on top

*Butter and cheese I leave overnight in the freezer to be sure it fully frozen.
