The biggest problem I hear is: My cookies spread too much! Why?

A common problem when making cookies is that they flatten out way too much! It is because of the butter we use. This recipe calls for softened butter, not melted butter. The best way to get softened butter is to plan ahead. A couple of hours before you make these cookies set 1/2 cup of butter on the counter. As it sits there is will soften.

But if you are in a hurry, you can microwave butter to soften it instead. Microwave in 5-second intervals rotating your cube of butter each time. Please use caution when softening this way. It can easily go from solid to melted in seconds! And in turn, your cookies will spread way too much.

For today I have some whole wheat orange cookies which are so easy to make. These cookies are very fast and easy to make when you want to whip up something sweet for the kids.

A simple bake, that is ready in minutes, making them a perfect teatime treat. For a perfect taste add orange zest in this recipe. The baking time varies form 15 to 20 minutes. Moreover, if using granulated sugar, then powder it and use. In India, generally granulated white sugar has large crystals and they won’t dissolve when whipping butter. Do check out how to make icing and powdered sugar from granulated sugar.

If the cookies are not getting golden, this means your oven is slow in heating. Bake for some more minutes than the time specified in the recipe.

In addition I would like to highlight our other tea time snacks and bakes recipes also. Hope you would like them.
