  • To a mixing bowl add butter vanilla sugar.Cream it well using a hand whisk.
  • Add vanilla essence, I used my homemade vanilla essence.Add an egg.
  • Whisk well then add salt followed bu wheat flour and baking powder.
  • Mix well, then gather together to form a dough.Use a tbsp measure to scoop out for even shaped cookies.While you do this preheat oven at 180 deg C.
  • Roll into a ball, coat over vanilla sugar on all sides.
  • Slightly flatten it.Arrange on the baking tray lined with butter paper.Bake in preheated oven 180 deg C for 10-12 mins or until the edges turn golden.
  • Cool down completely then store in airtight container.


  • I expected the cookies to spread so flattened it only slightly.But it did not spread so mine took time(12 mins) to get baked.
  • If you want thin cookies then flatten more and then bake for 8-10 mins.
  • If you don't have vanilla sugar then replace it with regular white sugar and add 1/2 tsp vanilla essence for more flavor.
