  • Once all are blended well, see if you can make small balls as shown in pictures. If not add 1 tsp of milk at a time and blend again. Repeat adding milk until you are able to make make balls.
  • Arrange the cookies in the baking tray by leaving enough space when they are baked they tend to expand.

Note:

  • You can add powdered sugar as well, based on your convenience. Adding actual sugar without powdering gives a rough texture and extra crunchiness to your cookies. So I always prefer adding them as whole without powdering.
  • You can chocolate chips, chopped walnuts as well
  • After 10-15 minute gently touch the cookies and see, it has to be firmer and not soft. That is how it has to be, if not bake them for 2-5 more minutes. If it s slightly soft, it is fine u can take them out and it will get harder once its cooled
