Walnut Cheesy Cookies

I'm submitting this recipe to Aspiring Bakers #3 My Favourite CNY Cookies from Jess's Kitchen Blog.

I used this recipe from " The First Book of Baking  for Beginners by Carol. The original name in chinese is Snow Walnut. I did not sprinkle icing sugar on top of the cookies so no Snow :o)

70gm Unsalted butter (room temperature)
25gm Icing sugar
1 Egg yolk
20gm Parmesan cheese (I used Cheddar Cheese)
15gm Almond powder
100gm Cake flour
30gm Walnut (Bake 150C for 7-8mins and break it into small pieces)

1. Cut butter into smaller pieces and beat until light.
2. Add sugar into butter and beat until fluffy
3. Add egg yolk twice into batter and mix well
4. Put parmesan cheese and almond powder into batter and mix well
5. Add sifted flour twice into batter until well corporated
6. Lastly put roasted walnut into batter and mix well
7. Take a small amount of walnut dough and roll it into a small ball. If the weather is too hot, keep the dough into fridge for 30mins
8. Take out the dough and bake under preheated 160C for 20-22mins (Depends on individual's oven). I bake 160C for 25-20mins
9. You can sprinkle some icing sugar on the cookies before you eat.
