Recipe 78: Eggless Vanilla Cookies

Vanilla is such a tempting flavour and aroma. It reminds both kids and adults that there is sweet dessert somewhere.

The day I tried making Chocolate Chip Cookies, I made some basic eggless vanilla cookies as well.
And much to my apprehension, my about-to-turn-2 year old girl, chomped on those as well!!
Extremely glad and satisfied that she replaced store bought cookies for homemade, I am sharing my recipe of Eggless Vanilla Cookies with you all.

I baked my cookies on stove-top. So, this means you can bake absolutely crunchy and great tasting cookies without any oven or microwave.

Happy baking!


  1. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour/maida
  2. 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  3. 1/4 + 2 tbsp. granulated white sugar
  4. 1 tsp. baking powder
  5. 1 tsp. vanilla essence (get on Amazon)
  6. 1/4 tsp. salt


In a mixing bowl, whisk together room temperature butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Sieve and add flour, salt and baking powder into the butter mixture.
Add vanilla essence.
With clean hands, begin kneading the mixture to form a soft dough.
No need for additional water or milk.
Cover the dough with a clingfilm and refrigerate for atleast half an hour to harden.
Now prepare stove-top oven by placing a large cooking vessel/handi/patila.
Place another small handi/patila inside.
Place an aluminum plate on top of the small handi/patila.
Now take out the cookie dough from fridge.
Make your desired shape and place the raw cookies on top of the aluminum plate with ample space between.
These cookies almost doubles its size after baking.
Cover the large handi/patila with another plate in order to trap the heat.
Bake for no more than 15 minutes.
Take out carefully the aluminum plate on which cookies are placed and let it cool naturally.
Store your cookies in air-tight container.
