Salted Seaweed Cookies March 5, 2007

Posted by Angeleyes in Bakes, Cookies.

Been eating too many sweet cookies previously and when I discovered this salted cookie, it’s kinda nice for a change. I’ve adapted this yummy recipe from one of my baking idol, Aunty Yochana.



  • 250g Butter or margerine
  • 75 g icing sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Salt (orignal recipe ask for 1 tsp.)
  • 10 g blended seaweed (nori) – blend till fine
  • 300 g Cornflour
  • 80 g Hong Kong flour (pau flour – I used the Blue Key brand)


  1. Beat butter or margerine, icing sugar and salt till creamy
  2. Add in blended seaweed, corn flour and Hong Kong flour and mix into a dough.
  3. Roll a small dough to about 4-5mm thick and cut out with a cookie cutter or place dough into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe onto baking tray
  4. Bake at 150C for about 20 – 25 mins (don’t over baked or it will turn brownish)
  5. Remove from oven and leave to cool before storing into containers
