The day I baked these cookies, the pleasure of baking reached a new high. So often I had tried to bake cookies of different varieties and almost every time I failed…. yes, I failed. In spite of following the most perfect recipes, I met with little success and I almost gave up on the idea of baking homemade cookies.

Last evening, all of a sudden cookies struck my mind again. With lots of apprehension and self-doubt, I put together all the ingredients and gave it one last shot…. and voila, I did it!

It is a very basic and easy recipe of cookies. Only a few ingredients and it is done. It can be prepared at ease and very quickly. No fancy ingredients and no beating is required to produce these delicious mood boosters.

Makes-> 12 cookies.


  • Flour -> 100 gm
  • Butter ->50 gm
  • Sugar-> 80gm (powdered)
  • Cocoa powder -> 2 tbsp
  • Baking powder -> 1 tsp
  • Oats -> 2 tbsp
  • Water -> as required


Keep butter in room temperature. Combine all the ingredients other than oats. Knead it lightly with very less water. Make small balls. Flatten them slightly. Sprinkle oats generously. They will stick to the cookies easily. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for almost 40 min. Be careful after 30 min to prevent over baking. Temperature and baking time may vary from oven to oven.

Practice makes anybody perfect and hope and determination turn failure into success. My cookie experience is an example of this. Though I feel it’s not a big deal not to try out a few things in life, but at the same time, happiness is in making the thing which seems to be impossible…..Happy cookie(ing) πŸ’›πŸ’›
