Put all the ingredients except the grated cheese into a bowl, and mix together with a spoon or fork. Add the grated cheese and mix in.
Line a baking sheet with a parchment paper (silicone mat). Form the dough into balls, and put on the sheet. Bake for about 25 minutes in a 340°F/170°C oven and they're done!
I tried piping out the dough like the ones in this photo. They look very cute. In either case, the dough is not firm like cookie dough; it's very light!
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make a cheesy version of my favorite okara cookies, and this is it. They came out light and fluffy more like choux pastry puffs than cookies, and were really delicious, so I wrote the recipe down and uploaded it before I forget it.
You don't need to use a handheld mixer or anything to combine the ingredients. You can use a spoon. That means there's very little washing up, and you can make this in no time.
