Whole Wheat & Almond Cookies

Baking has gotten real addictive. I've been looking for excuses to bake something new almost everyday :) Yesterday I baked a batch of ginger cookies. I shared them with my neighbour over tea & they got over in no time. So, I had to bake some cookies to go with my evening Chai.

I told you that I don't have a thing for sweet bakes but this recipe looked really good. I saw these cookies at various blogs,  it seemed simple enough

Whole Wheat & Almond Cookies

Makes about 18-20 cookies

You Will Need:
  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup Almond Meal
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp - softened  butter
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cardamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp Milk

How To:
  • Preheat the oven to 180 C
  • In a large bowl, mix wheat flour, almond meal, suagr, cardamom powder, nutmeg powder & salt
  • Add Butter & mix well. Add milk as & when needed to knead into a soft dough.
  • Pinch small balls & flatten them with your palms.
  • Arrange them on a nbaking tray about 1/2 an inch apart. Bake for 18-20 mins until lightly golden
  • Remove from the oven & Allow them to cool on a rack. Once cool, store them in air tight jars
Enjoy with your evening tea/coffee

These cookies are not overly buttery but they gave a nice crunch & everything that has butter tastes awesome isnt't it ?? It doesn't take more than 30 mins,  to make these (including the baking time ).. Bake them today !!!

NOTE:
  • You can garnish with almond slivers before baking
  • The original recipe says it yields about 24 cookies, I could get only 19 (  maybe its something to do with size )
