Nestum Cookies

20.07.2014 - Batam, Nongsa.  Nestum cookies always one of my all time favourite cookies.  I think i had the best nestum cookies was in Brunei.  Missing it so much.

I've got this recipe from google, but while making it, i was struggle on the moulding. i use knife to cut cookie dough into squares, but my dough turn out a little too dry, so i get alot of crumbs along the messy! but after bake was delicious and crispy.


125 grams Unsalted butter
83 grams Sugar
17 grams Egg yolk
100 grams Plain flour
42 grams Corn flour
2 grams Salt
66 grams Nestum


Preheat oven to 180 °C and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy with a stand mixer or hand mixer.

Add the egg yolk and beat until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, sift together the plain flour, corn flour and salt. Then add to the butter and egg mixture.
With a spatula, mix just until incorporated.

Fold in nestum and mix well.

Scale dough into small ball of 15 grams each. Place these small balls of dough onto each baking sheets.  Gently flatten each ball of dough with a fork into a round shape (about 2 inch round).  ( I flatten it with a rolling pin and put into square )

Bake the cookies for about 15 to 18 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to brown.

Do not over bake the cookies. Otherwise it will be very dry and hard.
When the cookies done, they should still seem a little soft and they will firm up as they cool.
