My favourite cookies ever!! Cheesy. cheesy. cheesy. This recipe is the ordinary one. I will put the special recipe of Kaastengels that I got from my grandmother later on. But, it doesn't mean that the ordinary Kaastengels is a bad one. No, absolutely NO! What made it different to the special Kaastengels is the amount of cheese used and substitute margarine to butter.
Kaastengels itself is one of traditional cookie of Netherlands. I think, Indonesia got so many Dutch influences when it conquered our country for more than 3 centuries. No wonder, isn't it? hehehehe
