Simple Butter Cookies!!!

Hi guys!!!

I am here with my first recipe. I tried to bake some butter cookies yesterday and am glad they turned out really well in the first try... Yay Me!!!!!

What I loved most about baking the cookies was the aroma that filled the entire house. And, I loved the reaction on my husband's face when he took his first bite. What is more worth than that compliment :-)

The whole process took close to 30 mins. Yes my friends you can bake these wonderfully easy yet very very tasty cookies in less than no time.So here goes the recipe:

Ghee/Butter - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
All purpose flour - 1 1/4 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch

1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
2. Mix together the sugar and ghee/butter till u get a creamy texture.
3. Blend the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) separately.
4. Now add in the sugar mixture to the flour mixture and knead to form a dough. Something like the chapathi dough. The dough must be a little sticky so adjust the flour accordingly.
5. Place an aluminium foil on a baking tray. Make small balls , slightly flatten it and place it on the baking tray and bake for just 10-12 minutes depending upon your oven. mine took 12 minutes.
6. You will know that it is done when the cookies start leaving the tray and the outer layer starts to become golden brown. The cookies will be soft when u take them out but once cooled they will be crispy.
7. Cool and store it in an air tight container.

This recipe yields around a dozen cookies.

Bake these delicious butter cookies and enjoy as a tea time snack.
