Jeera Biscuits (Cumin Cookies) – With a flavor of freshly roasted jeera (cumin), these cookies are delicious and very easy to make. Accompany these jeera biscuits with a cup of tea and have a perfect tea time!
Jeera Biscuits (Cumin Cookies) are one of the easiest and tastiest biscuits one can munch along with a nice cup of tea. They are super easy to make. They are a bit different from the usual biscuits we have. This is because these jeera biscuits (cumin cookies) are salty and not sweet. We will add some amount of sugar in these biscuits but the overall taste they have is salty.
For this, we will firstly roast jeera (cumin seeds). Now, you can do this in two ways :
* You can roast them in oven. Just spread the required amount of jeera (cumin seeds) on a baking tray and bake them at 170 degree centigrade for 8-10 minutes.
* You can also roast the jeera on your gas stove. Take a pan or a tawa. On a medium flame, roast the jeera (cumin seeds) for 1-2 minutes.
After this, we will cream butter and sugar together. Remember that the butter should be at the room temperature. Powder the sugar in a blender jar. Powdered sugar will melt or mix in butter easily.
