  1. I am making it this week :) I have all the ingredients !!!

    Will definitely let you know how it turned out!

  2. Excellent looking cookies. It looks like a must have for children of all ages.

  3. Can I use melted butter instead of oil?Will it change the texture and taste?

  4. @shubhayes ofcourse you could use melted butter. It wont affect the texture, it will remain same.

  5. I tried this yesterday.i loved the smell and taste as i cannot custard flavour.
    but i felt the cookie was bit it the nature of wheat flour cookie or did i over bake

    in the 12th minute it wasn't fully cooked so i it for another 3 mins by then the base became dark brown

    other mistakes are:

    i made it too flat thinking it would rise

    i mixed the dry ingredients and took a long time to knead as i was held up with something else.Will the presence of bak.soda and powder for long time make it hard?but i just mixed didn't knead

  6. @cindhujaU have over baked it..the cookies will look soft when u take it out of oven, but as it cools it will get dont baked longer than the mentioned time..

  7. I just tried this Aarti and must say IT was just toooooo good 👍👍 sold out within family in minutes :)) thank u so much for this recipe 😊

  8. Tried this with part oil and part ghee.Everyone loved it!
    Thanks for sharing!

  9. dear I tried ur recipe... but cookies were bit dry and not fully cooked ..but hard enough what could be the reason

  10. Instead if veg oil can we use canola oil

  11. Can I use custard cream instead of custard powder?

  12. It came out perfectly but little hard... but i love the egg version...methink it akso keep soft how cud i add egg?

  13. @Arooshiya Mafasi think u have overbaked it.. bake it less time and this cookies remains soft

  14. Aarthi, if i wish to add egg, wn to add it.. Plzz rply..will try it

  15. @Madhui am not sure, haven't tried adding eggs in them

  16. Hi! I have tried so many recipes of yours and all of them came out so perfect.. I have been praised by all for food...But actually all the credit goes to you...sorry for the long post...I want to ask you can I use maida here in this recipe..

  17. Hi aarthi, tried these cookies today. Liked the custard flavor.
    But for 1 cup of flour i required 5 tbsp of milk to form a dough. You added only 1 tbsp.
    And my cookies didn't expand as yours added raising agents as mentioned.
    I approximately got 20 medium sized cookies. You mentioned as only 10.

  18. @Madhui think u haven't measured properly. Too much milk wont make the cookies spread

  19. Hi Aarthi, can this recipe be made in a pressure cooker. Waiting for ur reply. Thanks.

  20. Hi Dear Thanks for the eggless recipe i did try them all was ok, though I baked them on toast mode in OTG they were slightly chewy n middle and edges were crisp....why so?
    Pls advice

  21. Hi.
    You mentioned to line a baking tray with foil. But in pics there is no foil. Is it okay to skip foil and just oil the baking tray well ?

    1. since i used glass i didn;t line it with foil. if you use normal tray line it with foil

  22. Thanks for the wheat based cookies.please post more wheat cookies.
