Savory Cookies

So on Day 2 of cooking from my bookmarked cookies recipe this week, I chose savory cookies from my friend Aparna’s blog, My Diverse Kitchen. I’ve been lusting after these cookies ever since I saw it on her blog.


The taste was delicious and flaky – not spicy but with just a hint of cheese and pepper. You could add more if you’d like to bring some zing to it, but since I was making this with and for my daughter, I didn’t go overboard with the spice. But this recipe is so versatile that you could any flavors that you’d like. The only thing I did different was omitting the egg – I was happy to use it but didn’t have any and wasn’t running to the store for one ingredient.

Savory Cookies
(original recipe from My Diverse Kitchen)

1 cup cold Butter
1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Cheese (I used fresh grated Parmesan)
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tsp mixed dried Herbs (I used Herbes de Provence)
1-2 tbsp cold Water, or enough to bring the dough together

Preheat the oven to 190 deg C.

Rub the butter into the flour to resemble breadcrumbs. Add the cheese, baking powder, pepper and herbs and combine. Add enough water to bring the flour together to form a kneadable dough.

Roll the dough out and use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Since my daughter got to choose, we made lots of stars, butterflies, moons, diamonds… basically anything she fancied!


Bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned slightly on the bottom and edges.


Cool completely on a wire rack.


This was a fantastic recipe, Aparna. Thank you so much!

    To be a good human being is to be enduring a amiable of openness to the far-out, an ability to trust aleatory things beyond your own pilot, that can lead you to be shattered in very outermost circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly weighty about the prerequisite of the ethical passion: that it is based on a corporation in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a jewel, something kind of dainty, but whose extremely precise attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.
