No Christmas is complete without cakes and cookies. It is the season of giving and the joy is increased many times when you share your freshly baked cakes and cookies with your friends and neighbours.
Also it is my humble quest to look around and see if there are any lesser privileged people and share these food with them to bring smile to their faces. So with this thought in mind, I have prepared wheat cookies which doesn't have eggs. I really like these cookies as they are not only eggless but healthy too.
1 1/2 cups Wheat flour
3/4 cup unsalted Butter, room temperature
3/4 cup Sugar, powdered
1/2 cup mixed nuts(almonds, walnuts, cashews)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 Nutmeg powder
1tsp Baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp Milk
Preheat oven to 300 Degrees Celsius and line cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl sift flour, nutmeg powder, baking powder and salt. Using an electrical mixer, beat butter for few seconds and add sugar and beat it on medium speed till it turns light and creamy. Add vanilla extract, stir in the chopped nuts into the mixture. Add dry ingredients and mix well until a smooth dough forms.
Scoop dough into 2 inch sized ball and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Lightly brush cookies with milk. And bake these for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are light brown. Remove it from the oven and let the cookies cool down completely. Store in an air tight container at room temperature.
