Tried and tasted by Nivedita
How are you? How is the weather there in your place? Here its very cold. Past 3 days its raining cats and dogs. Rainy season! enjoy the rain. I am enjoying it. Snacks are must in this rainy season to munch any time with hot cuppa coffee or chai or milk. Some time sweet snacks, sometime savory.
According to me,(and my kids of course) cookies are the best sweet snacks to munch any time.
Today I am here with a different cookies. Different because its having Custard Powder in it. I have used custard powder in baking cakes and breads, but had never used it in cookies.
This time Jagruti's event Potluck party, Cyber style! - Fun and the Challeng... chose Ramya of LemonKurry as my partner for this month and she has prepared these lovely cookies. The recipe link is HERE .
Hey Ramya, my kids enjoyed these. Thanks dear for sharing this recipe with all of us and bringing it to the party.
I am here with her recipe prepared by me. There was a mistake in something
I think, because my cookies got skinny. I did not get the fat ones. But taste was good and all got over within half a day. My kids loved it. And I too liked the custard flavor in the mouth.
All Purpose flour - 3/4 cup +1/8 cup or 200 gm
Custard powder - 3/4 cup or 150 gm
Butter - 3/4 cup or 150 gm
Sugar - 3/4 cup or 150 gm
Baking Sod - 1/2 tbspa
Salt a pinch
Vanilla essence - 3 drops
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp to half of the dough done
Take APF, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Sieve it and keep it aside.
Pre heat oven.
Mix the custard powder with APF mix and mix well.
Whisk sugar and butter in a bowl till soft. Add vanilla essence and stir well.
Add the dry flour to this mix to make soft dough.
Ramya says NOT TO FREEZE THE DOUGH.
Roll the dough in to your desired thickness.
Cut with a cookie cutter or knife to make shapes.
Arrange these in a baking tray and bake it for 10 minutes or less. Keep an eye to check. Mine got burnt as I kept it for long time because my first batch was very soft.
I DIVIDED THE DOUGH IN TWO. IN ONE I ADDED 2 TBSP OF COCOA POWDER AS MY YOUNGER ONE WON'T EAT COOKIES IF THERE IS NO CHOCOLATE IN IT.
I got 15 big cookies.
Sending it to the party.
