The butter/ fat in cookies make them turn out round. I'm sure they tasted nice. Don'y worry, most of us start out making mistakes.

Looking at the first pic. I thought that it was a milk sweet.. I think this type of cookie was also my first when I tried back home... Love them.

AnuSriram said...

Whatever the shape is.... They always taste gr8!

archana said...

Nice one Sagari, don't worry about the cookies loosing shape, they always do. Since the butter to flour ratio is high in this cookie, the cookie dough will spread when you bake it. But it is an awesome dough to make cutout shapes. Tastes great no matter what the shape is. Happy holidays.

Try the Vanilla butter cookies I posted today, can't go wrong.Got to chill the dough for 1/2 an hour.
