The first time I baked cookies was when I was in Kuwait. Had some amazing cherries in hand and I wanted to make something out of it. And, the only thing that popped into my head at that time was Cookies. Used a recipe I found online, and let me tell you, it was such a hit. Expected me to be the Cookie Monster but turns out there was a handsome, super good looking-not so blue one at home-my Darling Husband. Frankly speaking, I expected him not to even taste them, but then the next thing I knew was mister was packing these delicious cookies to take to work. Even made me bake some more after a few days. Amelia enjoyed the cookies just as much as her Abbu did 😅

NOTE: 

*Refrigerating the cookie dough is important as it solidifies the fats in the dough and minimizes the spreading during baking.

*Remove cookies from oven when they are slightly undercooked and let them cool on the baking tray.

*If cherries aren’t available where you live, skip it.

METHOD:

In a bowl, mix together butter and both the sugars till well combined. Fold in flour.
