Procedure:



First of all take out all the refrigerated items & let them reach at room temperature, like eggs, butter, flour etc.  

Next, combine flour and baking powder in a clean dry bowl and set aside.

Now, in another bowl beat butter until creamy & fluffy. Next add sugar gradually & beat well until light & fluffy. Next add egg yolk, vanilla essence & milk i.e. all wet ingredients & beat well until incorporated. It will result in a fluffy creamy texture.. :)

Next divide the dough into two halves. Add green food coloring to half of the dough and knead it properly until green color is incorporated evenly. Leave the other half as it is.

On a sheet of waxed paper/baking parchment paper or butter paper, roll out both the green & white dough, with the help of a rolling pin into rectangular shapes as we are gonna make Pakistan's flag with it :) Let its thickness be less than half an inch.

Bake for 10-15 minutes. U will knw the cookies are done, when u see a change in color of the cookies & the base would have become firm. Cookie will be soft at first. Just allow it to cool before u serve :)

With the help of cream make the crescent & the star!! =)  Andddd u r doneee :)
