Vanilla Cookie


One of our dear friends gave us a customized “Basu families Jar of yumminess” as a present. It now occupies the central position of our drawing room. Unfortunately it sometimes disappoints the little ones as it remains empty. I thought of rectifying it for the holidays by filling them with simple Vanilla Cookies.


  • 1and 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 100gms. unsalted butter
  • 100gms. powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 10 – 15 almonds and pistachio roughly chopped


Heat oven to 375 F. In a mixing bowl the butter at room temperature and sugar. Cream it with a electric mixture. Add egg, vanilla extract and continue beating.

Fold the mixture in refined flour and mix well. Scrape the sides when required.

You can give them a shape of your choice by using your hand as well.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool it off. Store it in an airtight jar.
