Jeera Cookies (Cumin Cookies)

Jeera Cookies also called jeera biscuits back in India.  We used to go these bakeries where they will be freshly made everyday. These cookies makes me nostaligic as they remind me of my childhood days.  Those days when we had nothing to worry about other than just school, have fun with friends.

Jeera Cookies


Evenings when we used to have tea and different types of cookies to enjoy…..mmmm….These cookies are sweet and savory, and taste awesome when dipped in the tea.  Have you ever dipped your cookies in tea and had them??  If not try these cookies for yourself and let me know.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds, slightly roasted
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk, (if required)

Directions:

In the bowl of your stand mixer or if using your hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar using the paddle attachment. Add the flour, salt and three quarter of cumin seeds to the butter and sugar and mix.  Save the remaining cumin seeds to sprinkle on top of the cookies.

Mix it until everything come together, it should take a couple of minutes.  If it doesn’t come together, then you can add 1 tablespoon at a time to bind everything.  You might not need to add milk at all.

Once the dough is ready, shape it as a log and wrap it in serene wrap.  Refrigerate for an hour or until the dough is firm.  Then wrap and slice them into 1/4 inch thick roundels.

Preheat the oven at 350F. Place them on a cookie sheet with a aluminum foil or parchment paper on the tray.  Sprinkle the remaining cumin seeds on to the cookies.  Bake it for 12 mins or until they are golden brown.  Let it sit in the baking tray for a couple of mins and then transfer them on to the cool rack.
