Make a little more dough

This is a really simple recipe. The dough for this Gouda cookie recipe is ready faster than the oven is warm. Do you like Gouda cookies? Then make some more dough. You can bake the cookies and store them in the freezer, but you can also freeze the dough as a roll, thaw it later and bake it in slices. This way you can always bake fresh cookies super quickly.

  1. Knead all ingredients well together.

  2. Make two rolls of the dough with a diameter of approximately 3.5 - 4 cm. Wrap them tightly with plastic wrap. You can often roll the shape a little tighter in the foil.

  3. Let the rolls rest and cool in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. A little longer or even a day earlier is even better; This makes the rolling pin very firm and allows you to cut the cookies properly.

  4. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees in a convection oven or to 180 degrees in an oven with top and bottom heat.

  5. Roll the rolling pin in fine sugar and cut slices of about 1 cm.

  6. Place the slices on a baking sheet and bake the cookies for about 15-18 minutes until the edges turn golden brown.

What is the best way to store cookies

Cookies are of course the tastiest fresh. But you can also store them well. Store the Gouda cookies cooled in a tightly closed drum or plastic container. The cookies will keep there for about 3-4 weeks. You can also freeze the cookies for later.
