  • You should use powdered sugar for this recipe.You can replace with icing sugar if you wish.
  • You can use maida/All purpose flour instead of wheat flour or use both in equal quantity.
  • Do not add more milk or oil while making the dough.Cookies will take more time to bake and it will remain soft n chewy in the middle.So take care.
  • Don’t worry if there are mild cracks in the dough.These cookies will have more cracks after baking.
