Eggless cookies using custard powder(baking for beginners)

        When I had bought my microwave cum convection oven a couple of years ago, I set my first step towards baking. I used to browse for simple and easy baking recipes.I was totally excited about baking my own cookies and cakes. Thats when I had seen sailu's cookies she had posted during the christmas. The recipe sounded quite okay for a beginner like me. I set out baking this cookies and was so thrilled with the result.They were awesome. I baked a few more batches after that and everyone at home just loved it. I remember sending them to my family back in India too. They had also liked this cookies. So these cookies were my very first baking escapade. Ever since I have never stopped baking. And every time I bake is quite an adventure for me, though I am more confident and less nervous about it now.

Recipe courtesy- Sailu's Kitchen

eggless custard powder cookies
Wheat flour(atta)- 1 cup
Maida/APF- 1 cup
Custard powder-1/2 cup
Baking powder- 3/4tsp
Baking soda- 1/2tsp
Granulated sugar- 1 cup
Oil-1 cup

Notes- Use 2 cups maida/APF and avoid using wheat flour totally according to original recipe.

   Combine the wheat flour, maida,custard powder , baking powder and baking soda and keep aside. Next combine the sugar and oil and keep stirring till it forms a smooth paste. Now add the dry mixture to this paste and mix it well. Now pinch small portion of your dough. Shape it into a smooth ball and flatten it. Place it on the baking tray lined with parchment paper. Repeat the same with rest of the dough. Place each cookie at a slight distance away from each other though this does not expands much on baking. Bake it for 10 minutes at 180c. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. The cookies are very soft when hot, but they will slightly harden on cooking. If you bake for more time, the cookies are crunchy.
