Yogurt Cookies Recipe

 Yogurt Cookies Recipe

 In these Yogurt Cookies as the name suggests key ingredient is yogurt, packed with lots of health benefits is a fermented dairy product popular worldwide, and the rest all the ingredients are the basic and same as all the cookies needed; all-purpose flour, softened butter, baking powder baking soda, vanilla extract, and sugar. If we talk about the sugar you can make choice and would affect the results accordingly, if using brown sugar it will make the cookies denser, moister, soft, and dark in color than granulated sugar. 

Brown sugar is hygroscopic will therefore absorb the liquid in the dough, will not affect the cookies sweetness but the texture and the color will be affected, and granulated sugar just do the opposite will result in a flatter, crispier, and light-colored cookies, it is also hygroscopic less than brown sugar absorb the liquid in the dough, and slow down the development of the gluten which make the cookies crispier.

I have used the powdered sugar in these Yogurt Cookies so that powdered sugar is so finely ground and a bit of cornstarch is combined that prevent it from clumping, powdered sugar dissolves so quickly in baked goods and makes a fine and tender texture just because of cornstarch but the cookies result in less crispy.

Here one more and the key ingredient of the cookie is yogurt you can make choice; as I have used plain yogurt you can use Greek yogurt instead. Both Greek yogurt and plain yogurt are packed with high-quality nutrients and give multiple health benefits that would not affect the taste of the cookies.
