garlic & herb cookies...

I know it's kind of weird, but savory cookies are common in Thailand. It doesn't bother me to have some dried shrimp in my cookies. Many people do mind it though.

make 20
- 260 g all purpose flour
- 6 g baking powder
- 5 g salt
- 5 g white pepper powder
- 170 g unsalted butter, room temperature
- 125 g sugar
- 1 egg
- 50 g cashew nuts, chopped
- 20 g dried shrimp, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 4 kaffir lime leaves, thinly sliced
- 1 lemongrass, thinly sliced
- 2 dried red pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
1. Sift all dry together and set aside.
2. In a mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar together until light and creamy.
3. Beat in egg.
4. At low speed, stir in flour mixture in three additions. Scrape down the side each addition.
5.Using a big spoon, stir in the rest of ingredients.
6. Chill for 30 minutes, then fill an ice-cream scoop with some of the dough and drop onto a prepared cookie sheet.
7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are puffed.

I love sweet and savory together. The idea of putting dried shrimp in cookies might sound odd to people, but we Thais know it works.
