    Dear Vijee,
    Last evening, I inaugurated the loaf tin. Tomorrow I plan to use the muffin tin.
    For muffin kesari, you can try with half the amount because there is no baking powder in that recipe.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Varloo,
    The last photo - muffin tin & paper cups are from S'pore. I carried them neatly packed to all houses, I went for Navarathri. It lasted full 10 days, very well.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Oats-Date Cookies - Low Cholestrol, please!

    I tried this with 1 tbsp olive oil & 2 tbsp skimmed milk. One can use anyother odourless, refined oil. You can also use ¼ cup butter (melted) to knead the dough and reduce the milk.

    Whole wheat flour - ¼ cup

    Oats - ¾ cup

    Finely chopped dates - ¼ cup( mince if you prefer)

    Brown sugar - ¼ cup

    Oil - 1 tbsp

    Milk - 2 tbsp (or less)

    Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

    Knead all ingredients together.

    Divide into 10 balls.

    Spread a butter paper on a baking tray & grease it.

    Arrange the balls evenly & press with a fork to slightly flatten them.

    Bake at 180 deg C (375 F) for 18-20 mts.

    Remove & gently peel from the paper.

    Allow to stand on a net for 10 mts.

    Eggless Chocolate shortbread - makes 3 dozs.

    I used the Food processor for this. Can be done without FP also.

    Maida - 1 cup

    Castor sugar - ½ cup

    Cocoa powder - ¼ cup

    Butter - ½ cup (1 stick or 120 gms)

    Salt – a pinch

    Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

    White chocolate grated - for topping (optional)

    Preheat oven to 300deg F or 160deg C.

    Pulse flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a food processor to combine.

    Add butter and vanilla, and process until mixture comes together.

    Shape the dough into a ball.

    Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick; cut out shapes with a cookie cutter.

    Space 1 1/2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.

    Bake cookies until firm to the touch, for about 20minutes, till a nice aroma comes..

    Let cookies cool completely on wire racks.

    The following is optional.

    Melt white chocolate, stirring, in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water.

    Drizzle chocolate over tops of cookies.
    Let set before serving, about 30 minutes.
    Cookies can be stored in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature .
