Easy Okara Cookies

Easy Okara Cookies

Very filling, hard, and tasty cookies. They have the crunchy crispy texture of chips!

Ingredients: about 2 baking sheets full

Fresh okara
120 g
Flour
100 g
Sugar
55 g
Butter or margarine
30 g
Egg
1

Steps

1. Dry roast the okara in a frying pan while stirring (aiming for a golden brown color). It's ok if a few burned bits get mixed in, so keep dry roasting over medium heat.
2. Leave the dry roasted okara to cool down. Bring the butter to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
3. Mix the sugar and butter together in a bowl. Add the egg and continue mixing until it's the consistency of mayonnaise.
4. Add the dry roasted okara. When it's been incorporated, add the flour in 2 to 3 batches, and knead the dough. (If you put the dough in a clean plastic bag and knead it over the bag, it comes together more easily.)
5. Roll about 3 mm thick and cut out with cookie cutters. Bake in a 170°C oven for 10 minutes. If the cookies are baking unevenly, turn the baking sheets around and bake for another 5 minutes while keeping an eye on them.
