I have tried this reciper three times and still in vain. Every time I try to bake thie biscuits melt and the shape changes and cookies become hard. I set the oven to 300 F, tried even lower than 300 F but was not successful. Can you please help me do these, I really want to make these.

Can we use little salt in this as we use in all bakery cookies of Karachi (style).
