Easy Nutty Cookies
Yummy cookies are my all time favorite... I remember eating the fresh cookies from the famous adyar bakery...And so another sudden urge of having these cookies started :-)))....So,I came up with a simple,easy,healthier version of egg less cookies..and to my surprise it was a big hit!!!It tasted great and I simply loved the smell of freshly baked cookies..It just filled the air!!! I am sure kids will love it..
1) Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
2) Sugar - 1/2 cup
3) Coarsely ground cashews,pistachios,almonds - 1/2 cup
4) Room temperature butter - 1/2 cup
5) Cardamom powder - 1 1/2 tsp
6) Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp
Utensil needed - cookie cutter
Mix all the above ingredients well into a firm dough.Cover it with a plastic wrap and place it the fridge for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Then,divide the dough into four equal balls and roll each ball flat with a help of a rolling pin for about 1/2 inch to 3/4th inch in thickness(if you feel dough to be sticky use some flour).With the help of cookie cutter make different shapes and place them carefully on a greased baking tray/foil covered tray.Repeat the same for remaining dough.
Bake them for about ten to twelve minutes till they are nice light brown in color.Remove the tray and allow it to cool down completely,if not they will break.
Delicious nutty cookies are ready!!! Serve it with tea,coffee or even hot milk.
Note:Baking time may vary,adjust accordingly so that the cookies do not burn.Can also add few chocolate chips,raisins to the dough.
