Layered bar cookies for Bappa


Ganeshotsav has begun last week with lot of pomp and galore. Our family has been busy making sure Bappa spends a good time with us all. He is our favourite God. Mainly because he loves food and we do as well. I have been making different types of modak for prasaad. It is tricky at times with a busy work schedule but the happiness is when I come back home, prepare the modak and offer them every evening.

Yesterday though, I made a layered bar cookie with the extra resources I had in my pantry. I had a pack of khawa(milk solids),  a cupful of panchkhadya(mix of candy sugar, roasted dry coconut, ground dry dates, roasted poppy seeds, ground nuts(almonds and cashews). Every thing goes in this layered bar cookie.

Few other resources needed are:

Melted butter 1/4 cup

1 can of condensed milk

Chopped almonds

70 g of Parle G biscuits ground in a mixer

Cardamom powder

Cook the khawa with sugar till crumbly.

This makes a nice crunchy, gooey and the best cookies I have had so far. I am sure my Bappa enjoyed it as well. I was supposed to post this for my monthly baking group (#Creative Cookie Exchange). However, I missed the deadline due to a busy work schedule lined up 😦 Never mind I thought, at least I have been active in my kitchen making my Bappa and myself happy.
