These sweet and salty cookies are melt in mouth.I love these because these are both sweet and salty in taste.There are so many sweet childhood memories are associated with these .These are very common in Indian Bakeries and known as ajwain cookies.The whole house smells divine while these are in oven,the smell of butter with carom seeds oh; so good.

Preheat the oven at 350 degree f.(180 degree c).Place the baking rack at the middle of the oven.

Take all purpose flour,sugar,carom seeds,salt and melted butter in a big bowl and mix . Add 2-3 tbsp milk and mix well. If dough remains dry then add 1-2 tbsp more milk and keep binding the dough.
 Cover the dough and keep it aside for 20 minutes (For better result or can be make immediately too)
