  16. Hi..I've been searching for the perfect zeera biscuits recipe and it seems my search ends here! :) Just made a batch, they taste just the bakery-bought ones.
    I did have a few problems though - my dough didn't get the dough-like consistency; it was too crumbly, so I had to add an extra egg. Then I popped it in the freezer for about 5-10mins. It was alright from that point, and the taste it absolutely delish! Any suggestions as to why that happened?
    Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks Javeria for liking it! If the dough is too crumbly, try adding little milk until the dough comes together :)
