    • 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.
