Gluten free soentjie cookies

Soentjies, baking cookies from home

Baking from home can be daunting and when you see a wonderful recipe and want to try it, it can be overwhelming. Especially if you do not know where to start or what equipment to use. This is why my mother uses her Kenwood Chef. She bakes biscuits, cookies, rusks, cakes and cup cakes from home and her life is made much easier using her Kenwood. Having to use your hands to mix the dough, roll it out and cut it can be very intensive, but make your life easier this way…

We baked the most beautiful Gluten Free soentjies the other day. First you have to mix all the ingredients together. Then you have to let it rest for a while…

While the dough is resting, prepare the Kenwood Chef. You will have to feed the dough through the Kenwood once it is ready…

Then you have to feed the dough through the Kenwood. You need the mincer and the cookie attachment with the Kenwood. Then you can easily bake from this point on. When the dough comes through the attachment, you then cut the cookies into the same size. Bake in the oven and let the cookies cool down…

When the cookies have cooled down, use the mixture you made to stick 2 cookies together at a time. They taste absolutely heavenly…
