Strawberried Crunch Cookies!!

The past few days witnessed me rummaging through website for simple baking recipes. Found quite a lot and bookmarked them too. But hey, I have always been an experimental cook and find it inconvenient to follow pre-written recipes to the dot. I just love to do the dish my own way, by taking just basic idea of the recipe. So, after much contemplation and planning, I took in some basics of measurement of the various baking ingredients and voila...  came up with this recipe. 

Proudly presenting to you my first baked delight, as I take baby steps into my baking odyssey! :) :) Can't believe they came out so well! Am loving it!


Maida/All-purpose Flour - 3/4 cup
Powdered Sugar - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Cooking soda - 1/4 tsp
Strawberry Syrup - to your taste
Milk - 1 tbsp


  • Preheat microwave to 180 deg C (in convection mode).
  • Combine the sugar powder with the ghee and mix well.
  • Now, add flour and baking soda to this mixture. 
  • Add milk and mix together. The consistency should not be too sticky. If it is, add in a little bit more flour to balance. 
  • Grease a microwave cookie tray with oil/butter and keep ready.
  • Divide the dough mix into small balls. 
  • Mildly flatten them and place them on the greased baking plate. 
  • Make sure there is an inch's distance between the tiny balls, giving them space to puff out. 
  • Make tiny holes on top of these balls and put in two drops of strawberry syrup into each.
  • Bake for 6 minutes at 170 deg C.
  • Monitor the cookies closely. If cracks start to appear, cookies are almost done. 
  • Let them brown very lightly and then take them out.
  • Upon taking out the cookies, put in a drop or two more of the syrup and let it cool and harden.
  • Yummify the warm crunchy munchies!! :)
