Valentine's Day is for doing something special for the ones you love. And what could be more special than baking someone a batch of their favourite cookies?
Here is an easy recipe I used! Takes about 45 minutes in total!
1/2 cup butter
1 cup plain flour (maida)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
100 gms Chocolate Powder( Drinking Chocolate)
2 to 3 tbsp milk
*Preheat Oven to 180 degrees Celsius
*Whisk the butter and sugar together until properly mixed, and soft and creamy.
(dip in a finger to check-and taste!)
*Add the Vanilla Essence and Chocolate, and mix again.
(You can substitute drinking chocolate with pieces of a chocolate bar)
*Add Flour, and make a dough.
(Roll up your sleeves for this one!)
*Roll with a rolling pin, cut heart shapes with a cookie-cutter, and place in a baking tray.
(grease the tray with more butter.)
*Bake for 25 minutes. Let them cool.
(Meanwhile, enjoy the baking aroma.)
*Wrap prettily and gift them to your parents, friends, pets, or that someone special!
(And get Lots of Love in return!)
Makes 10 cookies.
