Suji Cookies Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


This is the cookies I used to buy from Indian tea stall stored in a glass jar but much bigger in size. Suji Cookies is  pleasantly buttery and  slightly crunchy  biscuit.

Made of clarified  butter (ghee), flour and baking soda, it is quite simple to prepare. The only time needed is rolling them into tiny balls.

If you want softer cookies shorten your baking time and they will remain white even after baking. Feel free to  roll them to your desired size but place them  1 in apart since they will expand a little while baking.

SOFT GINGER COOKIES



These simple cookies are  incredible, whipped up from pantry ingredients.  When you first bite into them, you feel the warmth from ginger  and  a hint of  sweetness from  honey with slightly chewy texture.

 For topping I had used granulated sugar but you can also sprinkle with silvered almond or white chocolate Awesome scent when they are baking. Especially fabulous with coffee or hot cocoa.

Most of ginger cookies recipes call for molasses but this was not available in my kitchen, therefore  had used  honey instead.

These cookies  do really  stay soft.  Soft Ginger Cookies are rolled in sugar before baking,  great  for the lunchbox  or for gatherings.

MY TIPS

Slightly flatten the cookies,  it will spread a little as you bake.

Place them 1 in apart on baking sheet, to give room for them to expand.

DAISY COOKIES/BISKUT DAHLIA

Daisy Cookies/Biskut Dahlia Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

These cookies made their appearance during festive seasons but they are now available all year round during Chinese New Year, Idul Fitri, Diwali and Christmas.

They are basically butter cookies that are light, crumbly and literally melt in your mouth. Daisy Cookies are just so pretty laid on a plate. There are few variations of Daisy Cookies, what make it different is the combination of ingredients used, some use condensed milk, dry milk or custard powder  but my recipe below does not use those.

This lovely shape was obtained using a special mold but if unavailable, a  cookie press will be the best option.

Special care is required for lifting the cookies from the baking sheet since it was extremely delicate.
