Custard cookies ( Melt in the mouth cookies )

Custard cookies ( Melt in the mouth cookies )

Few weeks back my niece Refa gave me a paper with 15 recipes and requested me to make one recipe per day …. After one week she came back and told, Mamma , I know you are tired but I am missing the cookies You used to make for me …… Really felt bad , decided to bake these cookies as the recipe was very easy plus I was using corn flour for the first time in the cookie dough , I felt very nice as within minutes the dough was ready and cookies were in the oven ….

After baking them , felt like renaming them as Melt in your mouth cookies …..immediately called Refa to come and meet me , when she saw these cookies , her smile and hugs were worth millions for me … Packed few for my teachers and was glad to see them like it too…

You can add Choco chips to the dough and give a twist to the cookies
