KAASTENGEL “Cheese Stick Cookies”

kuekeju2 copy

Apologize for hiding this blog as it was under construction for awhile. Then I am back now with love and warm story about celebrating Eid Mubarak at my friend's house. Before, I want to say Thank You Very Much to Sheila from Let's mess-up the kitchen for her time teaching and helping me with a new template. I am so happy with the result.

It was a lovely and beautiful Sunday afternoon. As we are welcoming winter pretty soon the weather that day wasn't bad at all. There are two families here where I live celebrate Eid Mubarak. The party was taken place at Mia's house. She provided food that normally could be found during Eid Mubarak celebration such as chicken curry (opor ayam), Beef spicy curry (rendang), Pineapple cookies (nastar), stir fried spicy chicken liver (sambel goreng ati ayam) etc.

The rest of the family were invited e to the party bring their own delicious food, cake, cookies and fruits. Ah ha... I love “pot luck party” specially when we are Indonesian get together, there always gonna be a lot of “comfort food”!

I made Nuts cookies and Kaastengel “cheese stick cookies”. In the making of kaastengel cookies instead of cutting it straight I formed it with heart shape. Just want to do something different then usual. Now, let me share little bit about this recipe – does this recipe is my favorite so far? I am not sure. I found this recipe from my old friend and it wasn't bad at all. And until now I am still searching for the “excellent” recipe. I may will find it from your blog someday.
