Once the mix comes together and forms a dough, transfer the dough in a circular shape on a parchment paper. Now put another parchment paper on top of the dough. With the help of a rolling pin press down the dough and then start rolling it lengthwise.

Roll it till the dough is rolled out to the size of 1/4 of an inch. Remove the top parchment paper and start cutting the dough from all sides in straight lines. Now with a help of a ruler cut equal sized cookies (suggested: 1 inch x 3 inches)

Make prominent holes on the cookie with the help of a skewer. Now shift the cookies with the parchment on a baking tray. Bake in the middle shelf of the oven at 160•c for 35 mins. The dough makes approx 30 cookies.

Tada! Your yummiest, and easiest short-bread cookies are ready. Have it with a cup of tea post-Iftaar.
