Many of you have been asking to share baby teething biscuit recipe, I have been giving maha milk bikis or marie biscuits daily. But somedays i like to make some homemade cookies or biscuits for her. For babies it is not recommended to add any rising agent like baking soda or powder. So it is best to go for a shortbread kind of cookies.
Cooking Time : 12 to 14 mins
Makes : 20 Biscuits
Wheat Flour / Atta – 1 cup
Rock Sugar / Panangkarkandu – 1/2 cup Powdered
Ghee – 1/4 cup
Dry Ginger Powder / Chukku Podi – 1/2 tsp
Milk – 2 to 3 tblspn
(MY 1 CUP MEASURES 240 ML)
Preheat oven to 180 degree C.
Take ghee and sugar in a bowl. Mix well. Add in milk and mix well till creamy.
Now add in dry ginger powder and mix well.
Add in flour and knead to a dough. Add milk if needed.
Now roll this between two sheets of plastic wrap.
Trim of the egdes and cut into strips.
Remove it carefully using a spatula and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
Bake it for 12 to 14 mins till golden. It will be soft when you take from oven, it will harden as it cools down.
Let it cool completely. Now store this in a air tight container for a week.
