Sweet Crispy Cookies
Today I want to share some very delicate, aromatic
and tempting cookies,
these cookies are bit more sweet and
have a very strong and tempting aroma
You cant stop your hand after one another...
A very simple and and quick to make recipe
and with very less ingredients.
I named them
Sweet Crispy Cookies,
but here it is commonly called
Now lets start
The main ingredients are
12oz of White flour
6oz of Castor Sugar
6oz of Clarified Butter
1tsp of cardamom powder
1tsp of Baking Powder
A pinch of baking Soda
Clarified Butter... here we called it GHEE,
so may be you can have GHEE on some stores,
most probably you can find it on Pakistani and Indian grocery stores.
But the method to make ghee from the butter is very simple
just heat up the butter on low flame and when it melts,
then cook it for some more time and its GHEE.
Oh yes the butter should be WHITE BUTTER.
In a bowl mix sugar and cardamom powder
Beat until it becomes light and fluffy as shown
in the above picture
Here I mix white flour, baking powder, and baking soda
and sieve it. When you feel your batter
is in rich creamy texture
then stop beating and add flour in the batter.
Do this mixing is with your hands, first you feel it crumbly
but gradually as you knead, it will become smooth.
Remember the texture is not as smooth as the pizza dough,
it will remain a bit grainy.
Now you can see the final dough texture,
set aside for 10 to 15 minutes before making the cookies.
As I said its not as smooth as a bread or pizza dough,
so you should make cookies with hand
one by one like shown in the picture.
Oh yes two more things for garnishing
some roughly chopped Pistachio, an egg yolk
and 2tbs milk, beat yolk and milk for glazing.
Now you made all your cookies then glaze them with egg yolk
and sprinkle some pistachios
Preheat your oven at Gas Mark 4 or 180c, or 350F
Bake them for about 20 to 25 minutes,
otherwise its smells told you that we are ready
With this recipe you can make 30 cookies of this size
Hm mm it smells so good believe me, they are very crispy, delicate
and like melting in the mouth when you take a bite.
A closer view,
glazing of egg make it very
colourful and tempting.
You can hold them in air tight jar up to one week easily.
A basket full of sweet, tasty and very aromatic
Come and have a cup of tea with me,
hope you will love it.
These cookies are very traditional and used in common day to day life,
