  • large baking tin
  • baking/parchment paper

Ingredients

For the biscuits

  • 110 grams Unsalted Butter soft, room temperature
  • 50 grams Caster sugar (I used unrefined golden caster sugar)
  • 125 grams All purpose flour / Maida
  • 1/4 tsp Elaichi / Cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

For the Elachi cream (cardamom cream)

  • 1/2 tsp Elaichi powder

Instructions

To make the biscuits:

  • In a large bowl place the butter and caster sugar.

  • Then slowly incorporate the flour and cardamom powder, vanilla extract if using and with a spatula bring it together.
  • Now lightly mix it with hands and gently bring the dough together into a soft dough.
  • Shape the dough in a disc and wrap in a cling film. Refrigerate it for 10 minutes so that the dough will firm up a bit.
  • Mean while Preheat oven to 180°C or 350 degrees F. And line a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Remove the disc from the refrigerator and roll it to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut it in your desired shape.
  • Put them in the oven and Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool for 4-5 in the baking sheet.
  • Them slowly transfer them on the cooling and cool them completely.

Make the elaichi cream:

  • In another large bowl place the softened butter, sugar, cardamom powder and some green food colouring (optional) along with 2 teaspoons of water.
  • Now with a hand held whisk, whisk together the butter sugar and cardamom until well combined and turns soft and fluffy.
  • When the biscuits are completely cooled, fill it with a generous amount of the prepared cream and sandwich 2 biscuits together.
  • Enjoy these elaichi cream biscuits with some milk or tea or coffee.
