Cumin Cookies (Sweet and Salt)

My today recipe for Bakeathon is cookie recipe, with a different taste and flavor. These cookies are with mixed taste of sweet, salt and with cumin flavor. I always bake this cookies for my father but with out cumin seeds. My father enjoys his evening tea with snacks like muruku, vampoosa, cookies like this,  but he don't eat heavy snacks like vada, bajji, bonda. My father says they make him full so it's very difficult to have dinner. So always my mother and me will keep this muruku like snacks ready. I remember my mother used to bake cookies on a tawa and she always bake her cakes in pressure cooker. Now she is not able to do so much work, poor amma she have done a lot for us.   Last time when I was baking them wanted make them little more interesting.
So lets check the recipe
All purpose flour  ---  1 cup and 2 tab sp extra
Butter   ----  1/2 cup at room temperature (I used unsalted, can use salted also in that case reduce the salt amount which I gave in the ingredients)
Salt  ---  1/4 tea sp
Sugar  ---  1/4 cup
Cumin seeds  ---- 1 tab sp 

1. Dry roast cumin seeds in a pan  till you get nice aroma from them and set a side.
2. In a mixing bowl take sugar and butter and beat till creamy.
3. Add flour, salt, cumin seeds to the sugar and butter mixture and mix till all the ingredients comes together and form in to a dough.
4. Make small balls out of the dough and press a little bit to flat the cookies. Place the cookies in a baking tray .
5. Preheat the oven 150 degree c for 10 minutes.
6. Place the cookie tray in the oven and bake at 150 degreeC for 10 to 12 minutes.
7. Remove from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack for some time.
Store this cumin flavored cookies in a air tight container.
Enjoy the sweet and salty cumin flavored cookies with a cup of tea.
