  • Take out of refrigerator and divide the dough in 2 or 3 parts.
  • Now placing one part of the dough between plastic sheets, roll it into sheet of 1/4″ thickness. Don’t bother to have smooth edges.

Recipe Notes

1. These will be very soft on taking out of oven. Let them cool on a wire rack, then will get  crisp. Always keep them on wire rack to prevent getting soggy from underneath.
 2. Apply filling once they are cool.
 3. If using salted butter, then don’t add salt.
 4. While rolling, avoid using dry flour. Place it between plastic sheets and you will be able to roll it  without any difficulty.
 5. Can use butter paper in  place of parchment paper.
 6. Use any oil, refined/olive/canola or any other. I used groundnut oil. Avoid mustard and coconut oil, owing to their strong flavours.
 7.  Please use standard measuring cups and spoons used for baking. Tbsp means tablespoon and tsp mean teaspoon.
