*1 Almost all flour sold in Finland is strong flour.
*2 I made it with Gouda cheese and Parmesan cheese. Blue cheese would also be delicious, but be sure to break it into small pieces before mixing it with the flour. Cheeses with a lot of water, like cream cheese, are not suitable.*3 You can fold the dough in the bag while mixing. The dough is not sticky like regular cookie dough, but crumbles into pieces. If the dough does not hold together and remains powdery, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and mix again.*4 Fold the bag and roll the dough out to make a nice rectangle.*5 Be careful, the dough tends to fall apart. If it falls apart, just press it down and stick it together.*6 If you overcook the dough because it hasn’t browned yet, the cheese and sugar in the dough will burn. Even if the cookies have not been baked for 10 minutes, take them out when black spots appear on the dough.
