Amul Butter Cookies – Detailed Review
The cookies are neatly stacked in a tray which is covered with a plastic sheet. The tray is then placed in a carton that resembles the color scheme of Amul Butter packaging.
The cookies are chunky-looking, round and thick. They have a well-baked subtle golden surface. The top is ever-so-slightly cracked and are almost identical in thickness. A few cookies were slightly smaller than others.
The main ingredients are refined wheat flour (maida), butter (25%), sugar, milk solids, liquid glucose, raising agent (E500(ii)), emulsifiers (E481(i)), and added vanilla flavor.
The USP of these cookies is the use of butter in place of vegetable oils. Though both, butter and oil, are sources of fat, the former is relatively more healthy and lends a better, richer flavor to cookies.
Why, you ask? That’s because butter contains saturated fats that are good for your heart when consumed in moderation. Refined/vegetable oils on the other hand, have a lower antioxidant content and contain unsaturated fats that may cause inflammation.
The texture is just right. These cookies have a buttery bite but do not feel too oily or greasy on the palate or fingers. The cookies are well-baked.
Since these are made with Amul butter, there is a subtle saltiness that balances the sweetness. The rich buttery and milky flavors are desirable. These cookies have a lovely mix of milky and vanilla aroma.
