Simple cookie :) .. can't find another name

This is a very simple cookie. It doesn't need any eggs and doesn't have many ingredients. So it is an easy try for beginners too.

Ingredients
  • All purpose flour - 1 cup
  • Sugar (powdered well) - 1/2 cup
  • Veg shortening - 5 tbsp
  • Cardamom - 4
  • Strawberry jam - 1 tbsp (optional)
Method
  • Powder together sugar and cardamom
  • Blend together sugar mix and vegetable shortening (I used crisco)
  • Once this has blended together, fold in the flour and make a dough similar to a chappathi dough.
  • Keep it in fridge for an hour to set 
  • After resting time you can make small balls out of the dough and place on a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Place the balls one inch apart. I got 16 small balls out of this measure.
  • You can bake as such or give a small thumb impression in the middle and add a little jam of your choice in it.
  • Preheat the oven and bake at 175 degree C for 5-7 minutes. Adjust your oven accordingly. Cookies will be soft while they're hot. It will become rigid as it cools.
