Eggless Wheat Cookies



Ria had chosen this simple cookie for the March Sweet Punch. Since all the ingredients were readily available in my kitchen, I took it easy and thought this can be prepared any time I want. It was just yesterday that I realized it was 6th of the month and I had to prepare it. After having recently tried my hand at making Checkboard Gateau, I am flying too high. I wanted to add some complexity to these simple cookies. I had planned something else when I made two different doughs. But as I was unable to roll these doughs due to their softness, I ended up making them this way. Best cookie recipe for beginners and also for anyone who gets a sudden cookie craving as these can be made in a jiffy.

Ingredients:
Wheat flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Unsalted Butter - 4 ounces or 1/2 cup (at room temperature)
Almond flakes - 1/2 cup
Milk - 2 tbsp or as needed
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Cocoa powder - 1 tbsp (optional)

Method:
1. Mix together wheat flour, sugar, salt, almond flakes, cardamom powder and butter. At this stage I divided this mixture into two and added cocoa powder to one mixture to get the chocolate dough.
2. Add milk and knead to get a soft dough.
3. Make balls, flatten them (I made a big ball of wheat dough flattened it, pressed the centre a bit and placed a small flattened chocolate ball. I garnished with choco chip and almond flake) and place on baking tray with atleast an inch of space between them.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 360F for about 15-18 mins (Depends on the thickness of your cookies and temperature of the oven) or until the cookies are golden brown.
5. Let then stand for 3-5 minutes.
