I’ve been wanting to bake these cookies for years. Just plain laziness that I haven’t done it till now! Somehow I give cookies a very step motherly treatment. Am not very fond of cookies, I simply find cakes and cupcakes much more satisfying to make and eat! But even if i may say so myself, these cookies are very good. they have a cake like taste and texture. they are crisp and buttery and not very chewy. They are almost the perfect cookie.

Candy Studded Cookies

Gem Studded Cookies (Makes 12)

Maida                                                              11/2 cup

Egg                                                                  1 (lightly beaten)

Sugar                                                               1/3 cup

Softened Butter                                              ¼ cup

Baking Powder                                               11/2 teaspoon

Coloured Candy                                             36 (use gems)

Grind the sugar to a fine powder.
Beat the butter and sugar till light and fluffy. You can use a hand beater or do this with a whisk.
Add the egg and whisk till it is creamy.
Sift the Maida with the baking powder. Add this slowly to the butter and sugar and mix gently till you get a sticky dough.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tray with foil.
Drop one tablespoon of the dough onto the baking sheet. Make sure the cookies are at least 1 inch apart from each other. Do not overfill the cookie sheet.
Press in 2-3 candies into the cookie dough and bake for 12-14 minutes or till the edges are turning golden.
Remove from the oven and cool completely. These can be stored for a week in an airtight container.

  2. As a kid, I was (still am) super fond of Gems. :D This recipe has best of both worlds. I like how the gems on the cookie crinkled in the middle :-)

    • K still has color preferances and will fight with nieces and nephews to get them! gems are such a part of our growing up years…although some of us never grown up!
