Sometimes I just want a quick recipe that I can whip up in no time and that still produces great results.
A while back I had posted a naan khatai (better than shortbread) recipe that produced AMAZING buttery, crunchy cookies. These are literally large golden coins of crumbly, buttery goodness.
The only downside is the entire process that is a bit time consuming as well as the time set aside for refrigeration, which frankly speaking I don't have much of anymore.
With a curious little Snugglebug always up to something or the other, I constantly have to have my eyes on him!!
These cookies that I recently got the recipe of are perfect!
Not only are they ridiculously easy to make, but they require the simplest of ingredients that are pantry staples.
While they are baking in the oven, the most gorgeous buttery aroma will fill your house and.. I do not exaggerate: when you bite in to these gorgeous little biscuits, they literally melt and disappear in your mouth!!
They are divine!! Not to mention, Snugglebug is addicted to them!!
Nothing better than treating my baby to homemade goodies made with love and knowing exactly what has gone in to them!!
This recipe yields about thirty gorgeous little biscuits.
It's remarkable how such amazing results can be achieved by such little effort!
250 grams butter salted
150 grams sugar
400 grams plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Beat egg and gradually add the flour and baking powder. Finally, shape the dough in to little balls and place them on your lined baking tray.
For reasons unknown to mankind (or maybe they are known but I'm too lazy to find out), these cookies traditionally have tiny stamp of food colouring on top. You can add or omit this step because it doesn't make any difference to the taste!!
