Butter Biscuits - Perfect buttery aroma in your kitchen - for Blog Hop

This is my first entry to blog hop Wednesdays started by Radhika of Tickling Palates. It is a wonderful concept so that we can get introduced to new friends in this blogosphere, cook from their blogs. In return they visit your blog and try out your recipes too.

My first friend in this blogosphere was Hyma of Flavors and me.  She has a simple but wonderful space in her blog. I have bookmarked some of her recipes too. I proposed to bake her Butter Biscuits, as till now I didn't baked any biscuits or cookies. Wooow, the biscuits were very buttery aromatic in my kitchen.

If you are interested in  joining  Blog Hop Wednesdays here is how it works:

"The plot behind this attempt is to form groups and make pairs with a blogger who will be your partner for that particular week. This happens every alternate Wednesdays. You will then go through your partner’s blog, select, choose, cook, click and post the recipe in your blog on Wednesday and vice versa. The alternate week you will have a new partner. This way not only you tend to your blog at intervals but also learn some new recipes along the way and get to know a lot of bloggers and make friends."

Recipe is here.

I halved the recipe.

Maida - 1 cup

Sugar - 1/2 cup - powdered

Butter - 85 gms

Salt - a pinch

Nutmeg powder - a pinch

Cardamom Powder - a pinch

Almonds for topping


1. Soak the almonds in warm water for 10 min. Peel the skin and halve them.

2. Sieve the flour, nutmeg powder, cardamom powder and salt. 

3. Beat the sugar and butter until it is light and creamy.

4. Add the flour. Mix slowly until they combine into a soft dough.

5. Make big balls of the dough and roll then on a floured board to desired thickness. If u roll it too thin, it would become very crispy.

6. Use cutters to cut them into desired shapes and place them on the greased cookie sheet.

7. Place the almonds on each biscuit.

8. Bake them at 180 deg C on the top rack for 12 min.

9. When the sides and corners start browning, remove them from oven and let them cool before removing from tray.

I want to try this again in wheat flour.
