Eggless butter cookies

They are the most simple, melt in your mouth cookies.

What you need: Makes about 20 cookies

2 cups all purpose flour
1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
pinch of salt
1 cup melted or clarified butter

Sift the flour, baking powder, cardamom and salt together; set aside. 

Cream the butter and sugar until they are well combined. Pour in the flour mixture and knead it with clean hands. 

If the dough is crumbly, add a few teaspoons of milk to bring the mixture together.

Divide the dough into 20 portions and mold them into balls. 

Place them on a greased tray or parchment paper and bake them in a preheated oven at 350 degree F.

After about 8-9 minutes, depending on how well your oven was preheated, the cookies will brown on the edges.

Remove them and cool them completely.

You may store them for up to a week for maximum freshness.
