Unsalted Butter - 220g / 2 stick at room temperature.
All purpose flour / Maida - 1 cup
Cornstarch - 1/2 cup
Icing sugar - 1/2 cup ( I used normal sugar, powdered in blender & sifted)
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp.


  • Sift flour, cornstarch, sugar together & keep it aside.
  • Mix Butter & Vanilla extract together until they become fluffy.
  • Add sifted flour to butter mixture and gently mix to make a soft dough.
  • Seal & refrigerate for minium 15 minutes.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper & keep it ready. Meanwhile Preheat the oven for 300F.
  • Make 1"ball & place it on the parchment paper in equal distance & slightly flatten it with fork. ( I dusted little flour & knead the dough to make it little firm and not to be so sticky.
  • Again refrigerate for 10 minutes then bake it for about 20-25 minutes or until it turns slight golden brown colour.
