Semperit Cheese

This traditional & flaky kuih is a must-have during the Hari Raya season! It is made with simple and easy to find ingredients, and almost anyone can make them with this easy to follow recipe. We love this version where we’ve added a hint of saltiness with some parmesan and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese 🧀 so it balances out the sweetness of this crumbly biscuit. This is a truly sedap kuih which tastes amazing
