This Recipe that I am going to share, its by my mom. We used to have these cookies since Childhood. To me its a very traditional Recipe. any flavors you want to add, all depending upon your taste. I used Chocolate, Vanilla and Raspberry for that. Same recipe goes for all cookies with distinct use of essences and food colors. Well here we go, it makes about 20 to 30 cookies, enough for your family while having tea/coffee. I love its crunchy texture outside and softy material of a classic cookie from inside. So for making a cookie you gonna have:[/size]

You will need:
1/2 cup unsalted Butter/clarified Butter[/size]
1 cup Sugar[/size]
2 Eggs[/size]
1 tsp Baking Powder[/size]
Milk 1/4 cup(Use Milk as required, dough should be soft, add it if you feel stickiness)[/size]
2 1/2 cup Flour[/size]
Vanilla Essence(or any flavor you like to have in cookies)[/size]
Steps to Follow
Beat Butter and Sugar. Add Sieved Flour & Baking Powder. Add flavor , Essence, Eggs, make a dough. Add some warm milk if you feel to have in your Dough. Make a soft dough. Then cutout soft cookies and Bake. This Recipe works for simple Vanilla Cookie. I filled my cookies with small pieces of Dark Chocolate.[/size]
If you need some amendments or more flavors, add Cocoa Powder or Raspberry Essence with Red Food Color as I did. [/size]
