Nan Khatai

Here we go with eggless cookie which is so easy that you can even ask your kiddo to help you in this process. It does not need any fancy ingredients or gadgets. Just whip up everything and relax and enjoy with hot tea.

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup powder sugar
1/4 tsp Nutmeg powder
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1 cup Maida (AP Flour)
1/4 tsp Baking powder
salt to taste or 1/8 tsp
few chopped pieces of pista

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a Mixing bowl combine powder sugar (little at a time) with butter until mixture is light and creamy.
Add Nutmeg and Cardamom powder and mix well.
In a separate bowl , sift AP flour, salt and baking powder
Combine flour mixture (little at a time) with butter mixture and form a soft dough.
Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let it rest  for  20 minutes.
Knead dough once again and divide into 12 equal portions.
Roll each portion into a smooth ball without cracks, stick some chopped pista on top and placed on a cookie sheet with lightly spray or wax paper.
Put dough balls 2 inch apart.
Bake on a middle rack for 22-25 minutes (as soon as it changes color take it out)
Remove from oven and cool down for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Store in airtight container if you have any leftover. 
enjoy with hot cup of tea.
