Gulab Jamun Mix Cookies | Gulab Jamun Cookies

Gulab Jamun Mix Cookies,  delicious and crispy cookies made with readymade gulab jamun mix. It's super easy to make cookies in minutes.

Every year during deepavali time, i buy ready made gulab jamun mix from the store for making gulab jamun. Usually i use half the packet and keep the rest to use later. But ever since i tried these cookies, this is my go-to recipe for finishing off the leftover gulab jamun mix.

I'm sure that many of you have some leftover gulab jamun mix in your pantry(Thanks to the one to one offer around festive time :-)) and if you would like to try something new with the gulab jamun mix, then give a try on these delicious cookies.

In today's recipe, i have used the MTR gulab jamun mix which is one of my favorite store bought gulab jamun mix. But i guess other brand mixes also work well. 


Coming to the flavoring agent , personally i like both the cardamom and rose flavor for this cookies. In today's recipe, i have used only rose essence but in the past i used cardamom powder(if you're using, add 1/4 tsp cardamom powder) and combination of rose essence & cardamom powder. All those variations are good in their own way.  So you can make these cookies with your favorites.

Shaping the cookies

In this recipe, i have used cookie cutter to shape the cookies. But you can simply roll the cookie dough into a log then cover it with parchment paper and refrigerate it for 30 mins.  After 30 mins, cut them into circles. That's way easier than the cookie cutter method if that's what you're looking for.

Now let's check out on how to make these yummy cookies.
