Savoury Cookies

If I had to choose between baking cakes and baking cookies, I would rather take the first one. I like cookies, but am too lazy to bake them, let alone shaping them one by one. But if I really had to bake them, I would definitely go for the savoury ones. Just like these ones….

I really love the taste. For me these cookies are so irresistible that I can’t help nibbling more and more. I got the recipe from my mom’s old notes, and my mom got it from old cooking magazine from the late 70s, Mahkota Selera, which is even no longer being published. My mom always bakes these every Idul Fitri and once in a while for daily snack. So this is really one of the tastes of my childhood.
