  • Now take an orange sized ball from the dough.Roll it into 1/2 inch thick chapathi using a rolling pin.Dust it with maida if needed.Cut the cookies into desired shape using mould.Remove the cookies and arrange in a greased baking tray.( I greased the tray with few drops of oil) Make a small dent in the center of cookies using your forefinger, thumb finger or a bottle cap.Fill the dent with the jam.Put only few drops of jam because it may melt while cooking and spill in the sides.You can also put the jam just before 2 minutes at the end of baking .Its your choice.

Take the cookies and store in a box.Enjoy !

  • For variations,u can try with wheat flour.
  • I am not sure of replacing butter with oil.Instead u can replace half of the butter with apple sauce.
  • I used mixed fruit jam.It gives the best taste than other flavors i guess.
  • I baked half of the cookies by filling jam in the beginning and half the batch by adding jam at the end.Both tasted good.
