  • 1 cup(240 gm) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter(at room temperature)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg white

  3. Add beaten egg white to flour mixture.
  4. Make a smooth dough.
  5. Roll out dough on a flat surface 2 cm thick.
  6. Cut into any shapes.
  7. Place cookies on an ungreased pan 1 inch apart.
  8. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or aluminium foil.
  9. Refrigerate for 15 mints.
  10. Preheat oven to 350 F
