    Oats-Peanut Butter Cookies - melts in the mouth!

    Cream tgether:

    Peanut butter – 2 tbsp

    Plain butter – 2 tbsp

    Icing sugar - 3 tbsp

    Baking powder - ¼ tsp

    Now add:

    Crushed oats - 1 ½ tbsp

    Maida - 2 tbsp

    Coconut powder - 1 tbsp

    Crushed nuts - 1 ½ tbsp

    Miix gently but thoroughly.

    Make small balls with a itny depression in the centre, to place some chopped nuts.

    Roll first in crushed oats & then in icing sugar.

    Arrange in a gresed tray & bake in a preheated oven at 160 deg C for 30-40 mtes.

    I did this in small ring tins. Tart tins, if small are also ideal. But grease the tins very well, cool, losen & remove.

    Canten Biscuits - Oats + cashew combo, crunchy!!

    From an old recipe with fully maida, I tried with half oats & the result was so amazingly divine!!

    Cream together:

    Butter - ¾ cup

    Powdered sugar - ¾ cup

    Add:

    Powdered oats - ¾ cup

    Powdered cahew - ¼ cup

    Maida - ¾ cup

    Cardamom powder - ½ tsp.

    The dough will be slightly loose . So make 2 long rolls, wrap in butter paper & refrigerate till it becomes manageable to slice.

    Slice & bake in a preheated oven at 160 deg C for 30-40 mtes till golden.

    Multigrain Biscuit - more crunchy than crispy.

    I used the multigrain atta, now available. Maida or plain atta can be also used.

    Sieve together:

    Flour - 100 gms

    Cooking soda, baking powder - each,1/4 tsp

    Salt - a tiny pinch

    Cream together:

    Butter - 2 tbsp

    Powdered sugar - 3 tbsp

    till creamy.

    Add the dry ingredients, to get a breadcrumb consistency.

    Rest for 5 mtes.

    Add

    Curds - 5-6 tsps

    gradually till you get a soft dough, which can be patted into discs, without cracking.

    Make 16 discs.

    Place in a greased baking tray.

    Bake in a pre heated oven at 160 deg C for about 40 mtes, till golden colour is reached.

    Remove, cool & store airtight.
