Easy Cookies for beginners from a beginner.. :) These cookies tasted like the tiny yellow egg biscuits that available in bakeries of Kerala.
Maida / All purpose flour 1 1/2 cups
sugar 3/4 cup
baking powder 1 tsp
vanilla 1/2 tsp
pure ghee 2 Tbsp
salt 1 pinch
Beat / blend sugar and ghee. Add egg and blend it again. Add the remaining ingredients and make a dough. If you find the flour is not enough (too soft to form dough), add little more spoons. This depends on the size of the egg used. Keep the prepared dough in the fridge. Better keep it overnight. Preheat oven for 15 minutes.
Take the dough out . Make small balls and press it between palms.(Or use a cookie cutter).Let them have 1/4 inch thickness. Grease baking sheet with little oil, place the prepared cookies on it, bake it for 15 minutes in 180 degrees. Check and if the bottom side is slightly brown take it out and let it cool..
