A perfect cookie for a perfect evening. The texture of the cookie is  crispy  outside and softer inside. Ideal for Bday parties, Christmas etc.
Butter            120 gms
Granulated Sugar        1/2 cup
Maida            2 cups
Egg               1 no
Baking powder  1/2 tsp
Vanilla essencs    1 tsp
Salt                    1/4 tsp
 For Egg wash:
Egg             1 no
Water          1 tbsp

In a bowl add sugar and butter and beat with the electric beater for about 2-3 mins.Add egg and vanilla essence and give a mix.
In a separate bowl seive baking powder, salt and maida.Add this to the butter mixture and mix to form a soft dough. The dough will be sticky, so add little flour and knead to softly. Do not over knead.
Wrap in a cling film and refridgerate for 30 mins.
Preheat the oven to 180*C.
Flour the rolling surface. Roll the dough to 1cm thick. Use the round cookie cutter and cut.
Mix beaten egg and water well for egg wash.
Give a criss cross pattern with the knife to the cookie.Apply egg wash with a brush.
Bake for about 12-14 mins @ 180*C. Baking time varies with the size of the cookie.
Here I have sprinkled colour balls and choclate strings after the eggwash and baked as said.
