  • To a mixing bowl - add powdered sugar and butter.Whisk well until creamy.
  • Add vanilla essence and egg.Whisk well. It will look like curdling, do not panic but keep whisking.
  • After few mins, it will become creamy, gather together.Place a sieve over the mixing bowl - add wheat flour.
  • Add baking powder and salt.Sieve well to the mixing bowl.
  • Gather together to form a soft dough.Cling wrap it and refrigerate it.The dough will be soft so refrigerate atleast for a hour then use it. It keeps well atleast for a week.
  • Cling wrap and refrigerate it.
  • Refrigerate it for atleast an hour.Roll between butter paper to avoid sticking.Roll it to 1/4 inch thickness, take your favorite cookie cutter.
  • Cut shapes using the cutter.
  • Arrange it in baking tray lined with butter paper.Bake in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 10-12 mins or until the edges start to turn golden brown.Let the cookies cool down completely.Prepare the chocolate glaze and keep it ready.
