Sharing one of my all time favourite and easy cookies using just 3 ingredients. These tasty, buttery and crispy cookies is a perfect evening snack recipe to serve along with a glass of milk. No Baking powder or baking soda is required for these cookies yet it turns out super crispy. These square shaped cookies can also be prepared into round shaped cookies by rolling the dough into round log instead of square.
170 gms Butter ( I have used Amul Salted butter )
250 gms All purpose flour / Maida
140 gms Powdered Sugar
Cream butter till soft.
Add powdered sugar to the butter and cream till it turns light and fluffy.
Now add all purpose flour to the butter - sugar mixture and combine together to form a dough.
Transfer the mixture to a working board, knead and divide the mixture into half.
Take one half of the dough and form a square shaped log.
Cover the log with a cling foil and refrigerate it for 2 - 3 hours ( or overnight, if possible ).
Repeat the same for the remaining dough.
When the cookies are ready to bake, remove the square logs and slice them into 1/4 inch thickness.
Arrange the sliced cookies in a baking tray and bake it for 23 - 25 minutes at 180 degree C in a pre heated oven.
Once done, remove from the oven and cool the baked cookies on a rack.
Transfer it into an air tight container and serve.
Serving Options :
Serve with hot Milk.
If the dough is refrigerated over night, keep it out for sometime and then slice it. This helps to slice the cookies easily without losing its shape.
