I baked sugee cookies which is first on my list. It has always been the first cookie to be baked. Sugee cookies keep well and last a long time. Though I am into eating healthy, that does not mean my relatives and friends have got to be in the same boat.
200g ghee (used QBB)
150g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk
330g plain flour
egg glaze, optional
1. Cream ghee, sugar, vanilla essence and egg yolk till well mixed.
2. Sift flour, baking soda and salt. Add flour to ghee mixture to form a dough.
3. Roll dough into small balls place on ungreased baking tray. Glaze with egg.
4. Bake in preheated oven 165 deg C for 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the preferred colour of cookies. Cool and store in airtight container.
The cookies are actually much lighter in shade. Guess it's my bad photography that made them look 'tanned'. Anyway I like the cracks on the sugee cookies which are their trademarks, liken to the 'feet' of macarons!
