It is not a difficult task to bake biscuits or cookies at home. Homemade biscuits are very delicious and a perfect evening snack. You can follow the recipe given below for trying them at home.


2 cups of Aata (all purpose flour)
¾ cup of Milk
½ cup of Shortening
1 tablespoon of Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Salt


To bake the cookies, preheat the oven at 230 degree C.

Now sieve the flour, baking soda and salt.

Now, mix the milk in the sieved mixture with a fork to make moist and soft dough.

The, blend the shortening to make a coarse paste.

When the dough is ready, using a flour base, make a ½ inch thick sheet of the dough and then cut the sheet with a cookie cutter into any shape you want. You can use the leftover dough for making the sheet again and then make the shapes until the whole dough is used.
