    1. thanks for the feed back. You need to grease the baking tray for sure or you have to use a parchment paper. Else it will stick to the tray

  14. Hi Jeyashri,
    I', a fan of ur food blog. I have earlier tried ur custurd powder cookies & it was a hit at my tea party.
    I tried the almond cokies, but they were not as crisp & the finished product wasn't similar to urs. The cookies didnt turn golden brown. Should i have baked them for longer? or what else could have gone wrong?

  15. Hi akka,
    I am planning to make this cookie today. Cardamom Powder is mentioned twice in the ingredients, so I need to use 1/4tsp and a pinch? or mistakenly you have mentioned?

    Replies
    1. If you over bake it, it will be hard and can't break it.If you want soft chewy, then slightly 1-2 mins reduce the baking time.

  23. Hi...I tried these cookies today...and they turned to be really nice and crispy...I took double of each ingredient mentioned but had to take about 5-6tbsp of milk to knead the dough.
    Just a suggestion you can view on...can we also add almond extract to enhance the flavor?...i don't get too much of almond flavor in the biscuit as of now.
    Overall i will rate this recipe 4/5. Thank you so much for sharing it :)
