Eggless Double decker biscuits

Inspired from Gayathri's version of bakery biscuits..


1 cup all purpose flour/maida
1/2 cup vanaspati/shortening
3/4 cup sugar powdered
Bit of vanilla essence
2 tbsp cocoa /drinking chocolate powder

Sieve the sugar and flour together to remove any lumps. Divide into two parts. To one part add the vanilla essence and mix well. Add half the quantity of vanaspati little by little and keep mixing till you get a dough. For the remaining half flour portion, add the cocoa/ drinking chocolate powder and make a dough with the remaining vanaspati. Pack both these dough in a plastic sheet and freeze for 10 minutes. Dust the dough with little flour and roll into thick rotis. Place one above the other and roll slightly so that both of them stick to each other. Cut into desired shapes. 

Preheat oven to 180 deg. Arrange the biscuits leaving some gap between each biscuit. Bake in convention mode for 8 mins. Cool for 10 minutes before storing in an air tight container.

Super recipe. Very excited to try. Does it need baking powder, or is that not required?

Thanks for your reply. I tried them last week and they were a hit in the house. They turned a little hard, I think I rolled them too thin.

Next time I'll roll them a little thick before baking the biscuits. Here's where I've blogged about it.
