This is about the popular bakery product in Bangalore... Benne (Butter) biscuit is the hot favourite in Karnataka available in Ayyangar Bakeries.. I wanted to try this at home for long time.. During Xmas vacation, I gave it a shot..here is the recipe..
Ingradients: 1 cup Maida; 1/4th tsp Baking soda; 1/2 tsp Baking powder; 1/4th tsp Salt; 1/2 cup softened butter; 1/3rd cup white sugar..
In another bowl, mix butter and sugar until it becomes creamy and pluffy..
You may use machine beater or hand beater.. Machine beater provides more softness..
Optional - you may add 1 tsp of Vanilla ascence..
Mix the flour to Sugar/butter bowl little by little to make a soft dough..Should not be sticky and hard...
Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.. make about 12 to 14 balls of cookie..Do not press too hard..
place them on the baking sheet.. separated by 2"..sprinkle little flour on them..Keep them in the fridge for 5 min...Place the cookie sheet in the oven.. bake it for 10 to 15 mins..
for spicy cookie, add green chillies, curry leaves and cilantro etc instead of sugar..
tell me how it turned out..
