Fennel Cookies

I think it's about time to make another batch of cookies to fill up my cookies' jar. Really want to make something difference from the one selling at the supermarket. So, I was thinking of using some kind of spices like caraway in my cookies. But unable to find the caraway, so I'm using fennel instead. Never try never know....have to give it a go !

Ingredients :

150gm butter
100gm sugar
1 egg
pinch of salt
1 tspn fennel powder
300gm all purpose flour

Method :

- cream butter, sugar, salt and egg untill well mix.
- stir in flour and fennel powder and mix to combine.
- wrap dough with a plastic sheet and chill for 2 hours.
- then cut dough into the shape desire.
- bake for 15 mins at 190'c or untill slightly brown.
- leave cool before lifting.

Here's my fennel cookies! Ready to serve...

Hmmm....mm....crunchy, light sweet aroma, something new ! Not bad at all ! Next batch going to be caraway. I think caraway is stronger in aroma. Well, have to find out!


  1. Are you trying to make me fat. :) Looks scrumptious. I love fennel seeds. Something to try. It would be great for Christmas.

  2. So interesting Kristy! Good for you for trying something new! I always get so nervous at trying something different, you've inspired me :)

  3. Where do you get fennel powder? I thought maybe I could use some of my fennel from the garden until I saw the recipe.

  4. looks good um fennel you can get it in indian stores Diana

  5. Divine : Hope you'll enjoy the recipe:)

    Diana B : Thanks and it's good to try something new that you won't eat everyday!

    Diana H : I think Rebecca from Chow and Chatter already answering for me..he he!

    Rebecca : Thank you very much for answering for me..he he! I wonder how was it like if using cumin...:@

  6. These little cookies sound so fun. If chocolate covered fennel seeds are tasty, why not cookies with fennel?

  7. These look so soft and buttery and delicious!

  8. They must have tasted very good. I like fennel...used to drink lots of fennel tea. :-)
