cookies and biscuit recipes

this collection shares 12 biscuits and cookies recipes that i have shared on website. except for one recipe, all of them need an oven to bake the cookies. you can either use a regular oven (OTG) or bake in the convection mode of a microwave oven.

while preparing any baking recipe, be it cookies or cake, always use fresh ingredients like butter, dry fruits, yogurt, cream or oil. also make sure that the baking soda or baking powder is also fresh and in their shelf period.
