Notes

    • Butter should in room temperature. 
    • Add appropriate sugar according to your taste bud. My cookies are too sweet by adding 150 gms of sugar. So if you want medium or low sweet then add 100 – 125 gms of sugar. 
    • I usually add baking powder for my cookies, so followed the same here. 
    • Instead of essence you can add cardamom powder. 
    • While adding milk, add slowly to mix. if the dough is not stiff then add few tsps of flour and knead the dough.
