I tried this cookie for valentine’s day. Due to other work I was not able to post. I searched my hard drive , it was stored in the ready to post file. Now I am quite free. So I decided to post. I saw this recipe in Sharmmis passion. From that time onwards it was in my todo list.
Now let us see how to make Soft heart cookies
- Maida – 1 ½ cup (185gms)
- Powdered sugar – ¾ cup (100gms)
- Baking powder – ½ tsp
- Butter – 50 gms
- Egg -1
- Vanila essence – ¼ tsp
- Pink food colour – pinch
- Rose essence – ¼ tsp
Add powdered sugar and butter in a bowl and mix it well. Add egg in an another bowl and beat well. Add half of the egg to the butter sugar mixture and mix thoroughly. Sift maida and baking powder two times. Add to the egg butter mixture and knead to a smooth dough. If you feel the dough hard you can add egg and knead. Divide the dough into two equal parts. Add vanilla essence to one part and knead. Add pink colour and rose essence to the other part and knead to smooth dough. Dust with maida and roll using rolling pin. Cut the dough with heart shaped cookie cutter. Grease baking tray with butter and place the cookies in the baking tray. Pre heat the oven for 180 degrees and bake it for 10 to 12 minutes or the edges turns golden brown.
Half to ¾ th egg is enough. So add egg carefully.
If you want marble cookies, you can mix both the dough’s and make.
Baking time may vary oven to oven. So please keep an eye while baking.
