Preparing the Cookies
  1. Our cookie dough sets after 20 minutes of refrigeration.
  2. For preparing the cookies, lay a plastic sheet on the counter & place the entire cookie dough at the center of one half of the sheet.
  3. After keeping the dough, fold the sheet in half placing the folded half over the dough on the first half of the sheet.
  4. Flatten the dough with light hands. Now using a rolling pin, roll the dough. To give the rolled dough an even thickness, rotate the sheet while rolling the dough. This evenly rolls the dough and maintains a uniform thickness. The thickness should be an approximate half a centimeter.
  5. Using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut the cookies from the roll.
  6. After cutting the cookies from the roll, roll the remaining dough again and cut maximum cookies using the same method.
Baking the Cookies
  1. For baking the cookies, place butter or parchment paper on a baking tray. The butter or parchment paper should be of the size of the Tray.
  2. Place the cookies on the baking tray. Make sure place the cookies at a little distance from each other. This is done because the cookies expand on baking.
  3. Place the baking tray in the oven and bake the cookies at 180° degree Celsius for 18-20 minutes.
  4. Our cookies are ready after 20 minutes of baking. Take the tray out and let them cool down to room temperature. Cookies cool down after approximately 30 minutes.
  5. Crispy brown bottom indicates that our cookies are properly baked. Plate them or store in a dry container.
  6. Our Millet, Sesame and Jaggery Cookies are now ready. Enjoy these delicious cookies with tea or coffee.
