Still when it comes to cakes and cookies, I wouldn't trust websites and blogs, Quite a few disasters with the recipes except for the Sujee cake. The next option was to call friends and ask. Thanks to one of them for unselfishly sharing this recipe. I knew I can trust the recipe for she is an avid baker who also bakes for others during festive seasons. Cookies tasted crunchy with a nice balance between the sweetness and spiciness. As impressive as the cookies are, making I won't say is all that easy but possible.
