3) One the ingredients have blended well together, flour your hands and form the dough into a ball.
4) Allow the dough ball to rest in a cool place or in the fridge for about 60 minutes.

5) After an hour, roll the dough to about ¼-inch thick and stamp out rounds that measure about 1-inch.
6) In the preheated oven, bake the rounds for about 20 minutes, till they are golden brown in color.
7) In the meantime, make the filling by creaming together the butter and cheese.
8) Allow the cakes to cool for a bit on the baking sheet.
9) With the filling, stick the cakes together in pairs.
