Boo ! Halloween is here ! Kids collect lots of candies. How about some home-made cookies ? You can wrap these and give out as Halloween treats.
I used light brown sugar to make these more tasty and little white sugar to keep their color. Instead of complete all-purpose flour you can use half wheat flour. If you use custard power in place of tapioca powder then don’t use vanilla essence. The vanilla powder gives a yellow tinge to the cookies. A big advantage is that you can keep the cookie dough in refrigerator for 1 day.
Note: After baking for the specified time the cookies will be a little soft. Let them cool down and they’ll harden. Do not bake them more thinking they are soft, they’ll become too hard.

- Light brown sugar – half cup

Whisk it until fluffy.
Now add vanilla essence, tapioca flour. Whisk again until its well blended. Now add baking powder, and flour.

Roll in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins. Remove from refrigerator and keep it aside until it thaws ( 10 mins).
Preheat the oven to 300 degree F. Roll in to cylinder shape and cut into half-inch thick. Sprinkle some sugar crystals or sugar candy on top of cookie. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 6 to 8 mins for 300 degree F. Remove from the oven and leave it aside for 15 mins.
