  1. I tried this cookie it was crunchy. It took 20 min to get baked. I used convection mode. But I struggled to take it from the plate. Should I grease the plate?

  3. 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?

    • Thanks for the feedback sapna. Sorry for the delayed reply. Regarding your query,you should have baked this for few more minutes. The time i mentioned differs from oven to oven. this cookies will turn out good

  4. Tried making the cookies but they didnt turn brown even after baking them for 35 mins and remained chewy.. Very disappointed with the recipe 🙁 a mere wastage of all the ingredients

  5. Thanks a lot Jayshree for this recipe it helped me in my first successful attempt of making cookies…
    The only change I made was I took 1/ 4th cup ragi flour and 2/3rd cup whole wheat flour and its tastes awesome
    Thanks again for your recipe

  6. 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 🙂

  7. Hi jeyashri.. Does this recipe not need baking powder or baking soda? Planning to try this out in my convection microwave. Wondering how this would be crispy.. Waiting for your reply.. Thanks in advance
