Ghee Biscuit /Nei Biscuit - Indian Bakery Cookies

These cookies are typical Indian cookies aka biscuits.The Ghee(Clarified Butter) makes it so special and I guess no Indian would say NO to this cookie(I mean any Indian,who is just like me,who doesn't mind adding Ghee ;) ).Though ,I already have an Indian Butter Biscuit(Cookie) recipe(Click here) in the blog,for which I received lots of positive feedback among my friends and others,I wanted to try these cookies, as it calls for Ghee and there is no baking soda or baking powder used.
I got this recipe from a neighbour last week and another neighbour also told me that this particular recipe of neighbour1 tastes delicious.If I hear or taste something good,I will not get good sleep, until I try it by myself ;).I was really happy that I found one more delicious Indian cookie recipe.A Big Thanks to my neighbour who shared this recipe with me.These are REAL Melt-in Mouth cookies :)I couldn't control myself and had three :((((.
Nei Biscuit/ghee Biscuit
Yields about 30 cookies
1 cup Ghee(Clarified Butter)-Should be completely melted.
1 cup Powdered Sugar(Confectioners Sugar)
1 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoon All Purpose Flour(Maida)

1.Preheat the oven to 225 degree Farenheit.Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil
2.In a bowl,bring all the three ingredients(Ghee,AP flour and Sugar),and make a soft dough.
3.Make small balls out of the dough,slightly flatten it and place in the lined baking sheet.
4.Bake the cookies for about 20 minutes and then increase the temperature to 250 Degree Farenheit and bake for another 20 minutes.
5.Once done,remove from the oven and allow them to cool.Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container.

1.The recipe is so simple and you wont believe,that these simple ingredients result in such delicious cookies.
2.And there are no hard and fast rules.While making the dough, if the AP flour quantity  given,doesn't give a soft dough and is sticky,add some more flour and continue to stir.It should not be a hard dough though.
3.Also Granulated sugar can also be used,but it will result in crunchy texture inside.
4.The baking time may differ from 40 minutes to 1 hour depending on the oven and the size of the cookie.The friend told me, that I can see the cracks on the top as soon as soon as it is baked,but I couldn't see any.So,may be you will see the crack when it is done.I just flipped one of the cookies and checked for doneness.
