    Can I substitute baking soda and vinegar instead of baking powder in this cookie recipe?

  2. Thanx for the lovely recipe. I made it twice, when i made for the first time it was perfect. but i dont know what when wrong, it was toooooo creamy. Is butter also has different textures. second time i used elle n wire butter.

  3. Hello ladies…

  6. hi so i got this land o lakes cocoa classics hot cocoa mix, and i didnt get that same color, at all … and i used salted butter i wasnt sure what kind you guys were using as you only said butter,… and they look white, can you tell what brand of cocoa you guys used ?thanks

    1. Hi Jaskirat,

      You have to use pure unsweetened cocoa powder…not the hot cocoa mix (it has all kinds of milk and sugar added). Hersheys is one of the brands we have used in the past.

  7. Dear hetal and anuja,

    Happy New Year….

    Nice video..but one question.. can I skip the step to adding vanila extract ???

  8. Dear Hetal and Anuja

    The recipe provided is wonderful. I have tried baking this as well as the choco chip cookies. Perfect!
    Both my family and colleagues enjoyed them.
    thanx and post many more interesting cookie recipes

  9. I made cookies which turned out to be good. Appreciate if you could provide measurements in grams which would help us to be more accurate. Secondly is there any substitute for butter eg. oil. I could make only 14 cookies (same size as yours) whereas you made 24 with same amount of material. How come ?

    1. Hi Ummehani,

      Though you could substitute oil for butter, the texture may be affected. Butter has a different mix of milk fat and moisture.

  10. I just wanted to thank you and say I’ve learned this recipe by heart, it needs so little ingredients and it’s so easy we’re making it whenever we’re in need of something sweet. πŸ™‚ I’ve started adding little milk into sugar and butter to make it easier to mix and it helps. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Salaam Anuja and Hetal i love your recipes. I am originally from afghanistan but i love indian cuisine. Show me the curry is one of my favorite cooking shows. You two are one of the best online chefs ever. Keep it up

  12. Hai H&A iam from india …I dont have the big oven but i had the microwave..can u let me know how to do in microwave . Thanks in advance.

  13. Hi Ladies,

    WOW, I tried these over week-end and came out very good. Kids had double the fun making and eating them.

    My daughter just has one request of making them crispier like store bought. I didn’t want to alter this recipe the first time, will try temp/time changes next time to bake crispier.

    Keep up the good work, I will surely revisit site for newer recipes.


  14. Hi,
    Love your videos. I would like to know how long will these stay good on room temperature. I am planning to take it to somebody in 3 weeks. Will they stay good on room temperature?


    1. Hi Sowmya,

      These cookies stay fresh at room temperature but we would limit it to one week. They will lose their fresh flavor after 3 weeks.

  15. Hi guys,

    I have tried a few recipes off your website, and so far, they have come out GREAT! all except for the eggless chocolate cookies. Something went wrong drastically in the batter – the dough was too creamy and i had to add more flour to get the texture right. And with the amount of dough I made, I ended up with 50 cookies, so you can imagine πŸ™‚ They tasted alright though. I was hoping you could give me the measurements in grams…as that would be much easier?

  16. Hello hetal,I had a receipe which I don’t know exactly…I had friend from bosinia she gave me some breads which she used to make from all purpose flour….she made like bread sticks (soft) which had spinach and feta cheese in it…. was like yummy….I hope u got me….can u pls find such receipe and post it…..

  17. Hi Ladies, Just wanted to let you know I tried this recipe and it was fabulous πŸ™‚ The only changes I made is use salted butter, melted, 10 tblspoons and 3/4tspn baking powder. This is so going to be a regular in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Hey ladies! Nice job i tried out all ur cookies rite from nan khatai and everything was a huge hit at my place… Just wanted to knw whether u guys can make these type of cokies with cookie cutter and a dip in the melted chocolate.. Do u have any reciepe with that kind… pls do let me knw…

  19. hi.i m from india.i cdnt get the chocolate cips n so i used pieces of melody chocolate.but it all gt melted.ny suggestion for proxy for chocolate chips

    1. We are not sure what Melody chocolate is but something like M&Ms would work (the mini ones), or you can use little pieces of baking chocolate.

  20. hi.i tried this recpie with exact measurements,but the cookies were extremely thin n crumbly.can you pls help why.n when u say 10 tablespn of butter,how many cups is it equal to.pls help as its my son’s bday this weekend and i wanted to bake them fr him

    1. Hi Meena,

      Sorry for the late reply. Usually, refrigerating the dough prevents the cookies from spreading out and becoming too thin. 10 Tbsp is one stick plus two tablespoons (or 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp).

  21. hi, hetal and anuja…

    this recipe was amazing…!!

    i was searching for some eggless cookies….to make for a vegetarian friend.

    and i loved these… this recipe is a sons finished half of the cookies..during the day…and i had to make them again in the night…. πŸ™‚

    just one thing., i live in japan and the cup sizes here are different than the american sizes..please mention the amount of ingredients in metric for all the baking products….i used some internet chart to convert the “cups” to “gms” ….but somehow ..the number of cookies i made in one go were less …. but they were so delicious that ….they were eaten in no my kids…and the vegetarian guests the next day too…!!

    thanks a lot!!!!

  22. These look great! Can you tell me how to modify (if at all) the recipe to bake the cookies at high altitudes. I am at 5k and I have tried your nan khatai recipe which came out a tiny bit harder, but still great.

    1. Sorry Ginni, we are altitude challenged :(. Not sure how the recipe would change. Maybe some of our other viewers can help.

  23. Hi hetal and Anuja,
    Thanks a lot for the wonderful recipes . You guys have become a daily visitors to my house .my 5 year old son refers you both as aunties . He likes watching your videos. He wants me to make the cookies right now after watching it.I am starting to the store to get all the ingredients.

    I had a small question regarding my spatulas .I use wooden or bamboo ones but after some time it changes color.I see you both using the silicone or heat resistant ones. What is safe ana where can I get them.I want to replace all my wooden ones.
    Thanks a lot again

    1. Hi Nirmala,

      The heat resistant silicone ones work really well. Get good quality ones that bend easily. They tend to clean up much better than the cheaper ones. Remember, not all silicone ones are heat resistant so be sure to read the label and make sure it is.

  24. Ouch …..Too much butter………i make all my cookies with olive oil or coconut oil and they turn out delicious. There is not need to use butter to make out of this world cookies AT ALL. Also I use to apple sauce to cut down on oil. IF you make them healthy, you can have more πŸ™‚ or without any guilt πŸ™‚

  25. Hi…I have tried many of your recipes and they are so good…for this recipe I just wanted to know where did you get the white and dark chocolate chips….I only get the regular semi sweet and the regular white chocolate chips…

    1. Hi Anu,

      Can’t remember exactly which store, but sometimes during the holiday season, there are more options with chocolate chips.

  26. hi Anuja/Hetal,

    I tried this recipe yesterday and it was awesome. By the way hetal your top is soooooo good. U both rock and thanks for sharing this recipe. Please show us how to make some good chicken/mutton/fish dum biryani.


  27. Hi A&H, just made the cookies…. what can i say…… just yum yum yum……however i made a slight change,just added 2tbsp of nescafe and the result was out of the world.

  28. I like all your receipes them r grate. Both of u r doing a wonderful job with house, kids and work. Thank u again. I have a question for suger substitute, can i use splenda insted of suger. My husband is a diabetic and i try not to make food with suger in it. Just let me know, thnks again.

    1. Hi Gira,

      We have not tried Splenda but it should work. Look for the Splenda for baking as the texture is similar to sugar and the quantities are usually the same as well.

  29. Info for all happy bakers, if you dont like eggs the best option is very ripe bananas, it acts as a binder & add walnuts for a very happy ending. I do not use eggs for cakes till a friend told me this idea & I haven’t stopped using babanas.!!

  30. Hi
    Thats a nice recipe for sure…but too much butter and APF.
    Can the floue be substituted with wheat flour.
    Please show us some recipes with whole wheat flour.

  31. Nice and thanks for suggesting an option without cocoa powder too. I am surprised that the chocolate chip held up their shape and did not melt!
    Both of your tops look very nice. Anuja’s top is very unique and Hetal, that color suites you. Enjoyed the vide.

    Happy summer to you and your families.

        1. I have not tried the recipe as yet, but 1 tsp baking powder is just right for the quantity of flour and other ingredients.

  32. WOW too much butter. Not a very healthy choice for kids. Homemade cookies are suppose to be good for kids but not with lots of butter.

  33. Anuja & Hetal,

    I absoulutely love your show, and the way you host is really fantastic.I have tried lot of recipes from your site (almost 90% of them).And I get lot of appreciation from my friends …all I tell them is watch SMTC simple …. πŸ™‚

    Anuja I liked your dress… I really wanna have one like yours.btw where did u get it??

  34. thanx very much for this recipe ….sure i ll ivolve my son while making this ….it luks so simple…is that sugar just a normal one or the icing sugar..

    1. Oops…Sorry, got my recipes mixed up. πŸ™‚ It is icing sugar also known as powdered sugar or confectioners sugar.
