Once the texture is no longer sticky and soft, stop adding the wheat flour.

Place a baking sheet on the oven tray and start piping the cookies. The cookies are usually made in flower shape like this. My mother and I did two types of flower shapes.

After that, place a little dice of cherry on top of each cookie like this. Press the cherry dice gently so that it will stay on the cookies after baking.

The custard cookies are ready! Since this is the picture of the last batch of the cookies, there is one odd cookie. Can you spot it?

Let the cookies cool for a while and then store them in an airtight container. These cookies are quite fragile so my mother placed a kitchen towel at the very bottom of the containers to prevent them from breaking.

Here's another picture of the cookies. By the way, I bought a new table cloth for this year's Diwali! It is the green one at the back :D
