Ghee Cookies/ Kuih Makmur

Kuih Makmur

Another old, re-visited recipe from an old post... eggless Ghee cookies / Kuih Makmur.

One of my top search post, at this time of the year, when everyone is busy baking cookies for Eid-ul-Fitr celebration.
With one sleep to go before celebration starts..... lets start baking  :D

Ghee cookies is also known as kuih makmur in Malaysia.

50g caster sugar

Icing sugar to coat.
  1. Pre-heat oven to 190C. 
  2. Add ghee to flour. 
  3. Mix until all flour is coated with ghee and looks like breadcrumbs. 
  4. Get a marble size dough and squeeze, if it hold shape then it is well mixed. 
  5. Make a dent in the middle and fill with 1 teaspoon peanut filling. 
  6. Enclosed the filling with dough.
