Homemade Cookie Recipe: Easy & Delicious Cookies in Minutes

These homemade cookies are made with a creamy mixture of ghee or soft salted butter and powdered sugar, combined with all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. The dough is then flavored with your choice of ingredients such as chocolate chips, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or roasted cumin seeds for a unique twist. After chilling the dough, it's rolled out, cut into shapes, and baked until golden brown.

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tbsp ghee 60gm OR soft salted butter (Note: Ghee should not be melted)
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar 30gm
  • 9 tbsp all-purpose flour maida (80gm)
  • Pinch of salt only if using ghee
  • Flavorings of your choice chocolate chips, chopped nuts, dried fruit, roasted cumin seeds, etc.

Instructions
 

  • Creaming: In a mixing bowl, cream together the ghee (or butter) and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. You can use a hand mixer or an electric stand mixer for this step.
  • Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the all-purpose flour to the creamed mixture, mixing well until a soft dough forms. If using ghee, consider adding a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness.
  • Flavor Time! Now comes the fun part: Choose your flavorings! Here are some ideas:
  • Chocolate Chip: Add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips (or more to your taste) to the dough and mix them in evenly.
  • Nutty Delight: Chop up your favorite nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans) and fold them into the dough.
  • Fruity Fiesta: Add dried fruits like chopped cranberries, raisins, or chopped apricots to the mix.
  • Savory Surprise: For a unique twist, try adding a teaspoon of roasted cumin seeds (jeera) to the dough for a savory twist.
  • Feel free to experiment! You can even combine different flavors for a truly unique creation.
  • Chilling Out: Once you’ve incorporated your chosen flavors, flatten the dough slightly and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1-2 hours. This step allows the flavors to meld and helps the cookies hold their shape while baking.
  • Preheat Party: While your dough chills, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Shape Up! Take out the chilled dough and, on a lightly floured surface, roll it out to about 1/4-inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to create your desired shapes, or simply cut squares for classic cookies.
  • Bake Time! Transfer the shaped cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
  • Cool Down & Enjoy! Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy your delicious homemade cookies!
